Picture this- your new school semester will include English classes, and you have just booked additional private lessons. You are on your way to becoming successful in the language. No sweat!
But! What happens after your classes?
What happens when you go about your normal busy schedule and loose focus, or forget some of the key information? You may feel like you are not doing your best, or that you have more to give.
What if you did not have to feel that way?! What if there was a way that you could help yourself, as well as your friends and classmates to do their best? A way for you to become a proactive independent learner?
What would the role of the teacher be in that instance? What would the role of the learner be?
When students are involved in their own learning rather than just passively listening, it brings about more interesting and relevant classes. An active learning style promotes natural analysis and encourages the application of knowledge to everyday life. It engages students in higher order thinking skills.
As such students are more equipped to take control of their own learning, inside, and outside of class.
Allot of students answer questions in parrot fashion, but when asked to speak freely, they freeze up. The fastest way to learn a language is to immerse yourself in it, whether that is going abroad to a native English speaking country, watching English movies, or just speaking English at any opportunity that you have.
Being able to speak freely opens students up to a world of social and business opportunities, and to a level that may not be obtainable through other methods.
The Facilitator Approach
With less time spent on delivering content through traditional teaching methods, facilitators can spend more time on building a community learning mindset and setting up the right environment for students to exchange knowledge. How one would do this is varied. Whatever the situation, it's most definitely something to be considered. If the students catch on- the learning potential is enormous!
At English To Go we combine all of these methods, in a focused and natural way! We give students a boost in the right direction and they walk away knowing they are capable of achieving more than they may realise, and with the knowledge to help themselves.
