CREATING ACTIVE LEARNERS
English Lessons Children in Athens. How English immersion, project-based learning and STEAM come together
Our approach offers a way to learn English from beginner to proficiency that will aid comprehension, understanding, communication and fluency.
Sessions are based on topics, such as microbes, ancient history, space or music.
We explore and use skills from the STEAM subjects:
Science: observation, questioning and experimenting
Technology: simple eg. wheels and complex eg. coding
Engineering: designing and building
Arts: culture, innovation, creativity and practical skills eg. painting and drawing
Maths: measurement, patterns and spatial sense
Participants are introduced to the topic and are inspired to find and ask questions, observe, predict, experiment and discuss.
Project-based teaching involves teaching skills through activities that are relevant to real life. Participants do a full investigation of a topic in a project. They use ideas, methods, and vocabulary from different subjects to question, solve problems and create in a fun and engaging way.
Our sessions are in English so participants have complete English immersion. Participants learn language and phrases in everyday scenarios and daily conversation, and learn to express themselves in English. Taking part in English immersion has been found to improve pronunciation, fluency, grammar and confidence in the English language.
