During the summer, a lot of students come to Quest with a solid knowledge of English. But not all students have as much experience using English. One of the liveliest classes at our summer campus is Kelly’s beginner (Level 2-3) class. Kelly’s class is always doing cool things, giving presentations and practicing their speaking skills, as well as brushing up on the fundamentals of English.
We caught up with Kelly’s class doing an error correction activity. Students apply the grammar concepts they have been studying in class and work together to correct mistakes on the board. Being able to identify and correct mistakes is a pathway to getting students to look for mistakes in their own grammar usage and improve their accuracy.
Kelly’s class also learned about marketing, and were challenged to create and present their own commercial for the class. For many of them, it was their first time giving a presentation in English. Students were challenged to leave their comfort zone, and they had a great time doing it.
