Do you like to have a great time while improving your speaking skills? Then Corey’s level 5 (Intermediate) class is for you! When we stopped by Corey’s class today, it was clear that everyone was having a great time and participating. The atmosphere was lively and students were chattering away in English.

As a reward for their great work all week, Corey’s class spent the second part of their speaking class outside to enjoy the beautiful summer day. While outside, we captured Corey’s class playing a game called Loaded Questions. Students were given interesting questions to get them thinking, and then they shared their opinions as a class. Check it out below!

Welcome to Sharmila’s class, where grammar comes alive! We captured this class in the middle of a role-playing activity using non-count nouns. The criteria was for them to make a skit about a dream, they had to use at least 2 non-count nouns in their skit. It had to be 2 minutes long and they all had to have equal parts in the skit. The students had fun and actually used more than 2 non-count nouns (their dreams were hilarious and interesting!!!). After each group preformed, the students watching were to provide feedback on what they thought of their skit and they also had to say which non-count nouns were used. The were all motivated, had fun, and thought it was a great way to learn the grammar in English!
Today we stopped by Zach’s class to say hello, and we found a lot of fun happening! Zach’s class was playing a game called Spaghetti Letters that challenged students’ listening, vocabulary, spelling, problem solving and team work abilities. In groups, students listened to clues from the teacher and had to come up with the correct English word he was describing. Once they figured out the correct word, teams raced together to spell out the word using uncooked spaghetti noodles. The first three teams that spelled the words correctly won each round. This proved to be a very competitive activity, and all students were actively involved in trying to spell out the correct word. Activities like Spaghetti Letters are a fun way to keep class interesting.
Today we stopped in on Matt’s class to see what is going on. Matt’s class is Level 8 (Advanced), and includes students from South America, the Middle East and Europe. A highly interactive class, these students love to speak English and have all bonded. In today’s class, the students participated in some drama-based activities that let them practice their speaking skills in a fun and interactive way.
Sitting in a desk all day is boring! Matt’s class walks around as part of an activity. They also mingle around discussing topics as part of a structured activities that mimic real life conversation situations.
