So far we haven't used a classroom for our English summer school in London in 2012. This was how we planned it. I have been around the school a lot more than normal and was keen to get some feedback from group leaders last Friday, many of whom are English teachers in their own countries.
Group leader and French English teacher Angélina told me something in a brief chat at the end of her group's programme that made me ask her if I could interview her. Very kindly she agreed.
Have a listen to what she has gleaned from seven years of taking groups of teenage English learners to the UK to improve their English.
I found her words both fascinating and illuminating. They also made me very happy about what we were doing for the students. Which was borne out in anonymous written student feedback, with 78% giving the EOT course four or five out of five.
Have a listen, is this what your school does every year?
