Important Aspects of Class
Most areas covered during class are similar to any other English or ESL class. However, these aspects of the curriculum are emphasized more into each ENGLISH COMMUNICATION class.
Depending on the students age and level,
class duration times vary.
Elementary : 50 minutes
Middle-High school: 1 hour
Adults: 1 hour and 10 minutes
Talking in English is what students in any country need to do more often. ESL, EFL or EAL, it doesn’t matter what it’s called. Most students learn English but don’t really have the opportunity to talk in English (unless they are constantly traveling or have made a foreigner friend). Speaking classes are specifically made for students to grab that opportunity of TALKING IN ENGLISH and be confident in doing so.
“The main goal of each student is to freely talk in English, without having to translate or filter thoughts from their mother tongue. This will be achieved by the help of the Montessori education method approach.” - Vicky
Studying something and trying to learn something cannot stick with a human being if it isn’t done with impact or fun. Learning to enjoy talking in a different language MUST exist alongside all the other variables of ESL. In doing so, we may often go outside to learn different expressions, we may sit on the floor and listen to the teacher reading a book, or openly discuss something in a casual environment rather than sitting upright on a chair and desk. There will be times actual “studying” of curriculum materials are needed, however, I prefer having students absorb the language as naturally as they can. Short term goals are set so that students may reach the level of language fluency for their specific age, however, the long term goal is the same for all ages and levels. “To be fluent in English with correct AMERICAN Standard pronunciation.”
With the help of the “Montessori Approach”, classes have been specifically made to fit each student’s needs and developing stages. Their curiosity and English proficiency levels have been taken into consideration in creating these classes. Each student will be in charge of their English journey and guided by the teacher. The Montessori approach of learning English as a second language or foreign language gives the student the opportunity to learn hands on. Repetition and exposure to English on a daily basis provides more opportunities to naturally absorb and develop comprehension. Therefor, there may not be a class that suits each child wanting to take class. Please inquire for more details regarding classes and schedules.
