Good morning, afternoon, evening
our English classes ended with May, and we can certainly say that trying out the use of the web has been very positive. Technology can empower our English training. Keeping alive a language is like any other training, the more you do it, the more the results improve.
There is a deep need to use the Internet in class, as an important contribute to the exposition to English, so thet all the perceptions you can develop and train in a class, are involved. English spoken, written by anyone who is on the net. Each one's contribution is essential, because it is so different from any other's. Variety is such a resource in a class; it relies also on each one who is present, since it asks for the maximum effort to pay attention and exploit any single moment to make advantage of anything surrounding you.
The class is the right place where technology can enhance human potential as soon as it surfaces; thanks to technology it can be even more productive, offering the possibility to be creative and highlight it more. Try to think of how useful a webcam could be in a class, with English students on the other side to practice English.
In Summer we should continue the work we started in May surveying high schools. English teaching can be integrated by activities so to reinforce each one's skills aiming at visible and immediate results such as the performance improved, the autonomy increased, self confidence developed. Young people understand immediately how useful English can be to pursue any objective, that a language is for life, and life is theirs. Up to them/you to decide whether having more arrows for your bow.
Below there is the leaflet to inform students about Summer courses; they will enroll at school.
Can you try to translate in Italian the three-line motto on the cover?
What are you going to do for your English in the Summer?
Do not stop training it, vary in types of sources, but never, never stop practicing.
