It is a great challenge for ASV to offer an engaging program for students in grades 5 and 6 and ESO levels. Many of them have a good background learning English but need fluency and confidence using it. For this goal, projects and oral activities are the best way to improve their communication skills.
Ms. Sarah, one of our teachers in grade 5, sees “students bringing incredible energy and creativity to the classroom” so works to take advantage of this in the regular English lessons and the drama workshop. Her colleague Ms. Esther has a “very enthusiastic group when it comes to games and new challenges making it very fun to work with.”
English lessons in these groups use an engaging workbook designed by the National Geographic Society but there is enough time to learn vocabulary and expressions by writing skits, short stories, and multi-material creations.
