Our teacher Jo has put together a handy list of tips on how to make the most of your English lessons. Learning English is not quite as simple as just turning up to your class and going home again – you should also participate actively in lessons and practice the language outside of the classroom. Here’s how…
Bring a notebook and pen to every lesson
Write down new language during the lesson and review it after the class. You can organise your notebook into different topics to help you find things.
Organise your handouts
You teacher may give you some handouts. It’s useful to put them in a folder or stick them in your notebook and organise them by topic, so they are easy to find when you want to do some revision.
If you don’t understand something or you want to know more, please ask your teacher. They will be happy to help.
Speak as much English as possible
Our lessons are communicative, so you will have many opportunities to speak to other students in English.
Do your homework
Your teachers will give you homework to review what you have done in lessons. It is useful to review new language to help you remember it.
Learn from mistakes
When you do some writing, write a list of things the teacher corrected. Check this list next time you write so you can avoid making the same mistakes.
Tell your teacher what you want to study
We follow a syllabus in our lessons, but if you have an area of interest you would like to focus on, we can help you.
Listen to your teachers’ advice
Our teachers have a lot of experience helping students improve their English and prepare for exams. They can give you personalised advice to suit your needs.
