We want you to enjoy our lessons and have picked topics that will interest you.
Our methodology is about giving you the chance to communicate in English so you won’t be working by yourself and be faced with the same exercises that you get at home, you will be involved in projects and tasks which will involve you and make you use the language.
Examples of this are:
- creative tasks
- preparing and presenting a role
- problem solving
- ranking a series of options
A TYPICAL LESSON
Topic: Cultural Differences
This lesson is an opportunity to openly discuss stereotypes, assumptions and reality in a safe, positive learning environment.
Pre-task: In pairs, students come up with different categories (e.g. food, manners, personality etc.) and discuss typical stereotypes of their countries, and others they know of. Students can compare this with authentic articles brought in by the teacher, looking at why some nations have views on others and why the reality can be quite different.
Error correction & language feedback:
During the task the teacher monitors the students as they work and then provides feedback on their language. This could be grammar, lexis or functional language; with this particular task anything from question formation to summarising findings.
