English Language Courses
We use ‘Task-Based Learning’ and ‘Traditional’ teaching in our English language Courses. We have a video showing some of the teaching methods.
‘Task-Based Learning’ develops the learner’s speaking, listening, reading and writing skills by actively working in a group on a topic with students participating and using English as a working language.
Our young learners co-operate in a variety of activities centred on a particular topic. This helps them employ the correct English vocabulary needed to complete the activities. In 2016 the ‘task’ is creating a video. For example, students will:
create a film script
use the script as a basis for language-study
film the script with themselves as actors and film crew
edit the film using computers
take ownership of a film uploaded to Shutterfly which can be enjoyed by family and friends at home.
