At the end of their course, to refresh and demonstrate what they’ve learnt, students are given a simple narrative outline and, in small groups, asked to produce and act out a short story.
These can be up to 3 minutes long and each person in the group must speak.
Students leave the course having had the experience of performing in front of an audience, in another language. This must do wonders for their confidence!
Students were given some time to design an island… their own, personal island with everything on it they could want. The choice is theirs!
They then were asked to describe their island in detail, to each other and then share their descriptions with the whole class.
These awesome students from Germany were here for two days. On the second day I got to give a 3 hour class to all 60 of them at once!!
After some games and other activities, they were given a set of instructions to make a scale model of our Solar System. They used paper, sticky tape, coloured pencils and a ruler.
Even their teachers were smiling! (Well, most of them).
