Enhanced Learning Experiences

To provide enhanced learning experiences, it is important to remember these points:

Communication must be regular and responsive to partners.BannerforNing6
Technology tools need to be tested and trialed first before students become frustrated – in this summit it was made clear teachers had set up the technology and supported student use throughout
Collaboration means being able to ‘get on’ with others – so although there may be disagreements between cross-school teams, the goal is to problem solve and come to a mutual understanding – we all need these skills in today’s world!
Student-centred, inquiry-based learning is key to successful sharing and the better understanding of global partners here.

English Lessons with Halina

Active English Learning

Active learning helps students start speaking English confidently in less than a year.
Active learning is more than just listening: it involves the active participation of pupils. They must use the language all the time and be emotionally involved in the process.

We need the conversion from Passive Learning to Active Training English Skills

As a language teacher, I use all kinds of tricks just because making students speak and building their self-confidence in keeping the conversation going is the most essential for me.

Hi to My Online Students

ID_mojeHi to My Online Students,

I am an enthusiastic online non-native English teacher. I have been teaching English online since 2010. I have taught children as well as adults. I have a master’s degree in education from the University of Wroclaw, Poland, Philology, Linguistics Jul 1974. After 40 years of teaching, I grow into an experienced online professional tutor. I specialize in Conversational English. I also prepare, for various tests, including the Cambridge and Oxford standardized exams.

I take advantage of new technologies. My approach is Teaching English with Technology. I use blended learning, flipping the classroom, learning by teaching or encouraging change from passive to fully active learners are significant implements in my teaching/ learning.

If you wish to practice speaking, I’d be happy to help you develop a study plan.  Feel free to look at my teaching profile and class offerings and send me a message if you think I can help you.
I specialize in Conversational English Online courses.
Moreover, I have been successfully preparing for English exams since a long time ago.
Why don’t you check my profile here or just Google me?
Look forward to hearing from you.
Greetings,
Halina Ostańkowicz – Bazan

Is English a Global Language?

 

The contentious issue of (non)nativeness remains unanswered.
Nowadays, being an NNEST or NNEST should not count but rather teachers’ professional capabilities.
The presentation provides a forum for reflection and discussion about NNESTs.
We should value professional and personal qualities over ‘nativeness.’
The skills and qualities that make an effective language teacher are the most significant.
Both ‘NESTs’ and ‘NNESTs’ are expected to be competent teachers, each with excellent professional skills.
What can non-native English-speaking teachers (NNESTs) perform better?
What can native English-speaking teachers (NESTs) manage better?

 

An introduction to the values of being fluent in English.
