Feedback:

 
Na jazykovom kurze som bola veľmi milo prekvapená ústretovým a priateľským prístupom lektorov a ďalších zamestnancov jazykovej školy. Vyskúšala som si rôzne metódy výuky a učenia. Zoznámila som sa s mnohými novými trendmi získavania informácií. Veľká vďaka patrí nášmu lektorovi Filipovi, ktorý nás zbavil strachu konverzovať v angličtine. Naučila som sa ďalšie slová. Hodiny s Filipom a Tarou boli veľmi pestré a zábavné. S ďalšími kolegyňami sme sa cítili uvoľnene a príjemným zážitkom bol aj obed v stredu na promenáde pri Dunaji. Veľmi ďakujem, že som mohla byť súčasťou projektu Erasmus.
 
 
Chcela by som sa veľmi poďakovať za priateľskú atmosféru na vašej škole. Ako úplný začiatočník mi vyhovoval prístup obidvoch lektorov Filipa a Tary. Na hodinách som sa cítila uvoľnene a každý deň som sa posúvala k lepšej výslovnosti slovíčok aj fráz. Snažila som sa porozumieť aj anglickým pokynom. Páčila sa mi práca vo dvojiciach, ale aj striedanie partneriek pri rozhovoroch, zaraďovanie dramatizácie reálnych situácií, práce s obrázkovými materiálmi a pracovnými listami. Mali sme priestor na vyjadrenie.Taktiež popoludňajšia prechádzka a výborný obed v reštaurácii ma veľmi potešili. Tiež som načerpala nové skúsenosti, ako možno pracovať na našich hodinách. Odnášam si nové námety, napríklad umelú inteligenciu v technológiách. Ďakujem.
 
Na kurze panovala veľmi priateľská a uvoľnená atmosféra. Cítila som sa tu veľmi príjemne. Učitelia a lektori Filip a Tara mali hodiny zaujímavé a pútavo pripravené. Snažili sa nám podávať čo najviac informácií s ohľadom na zloženie účastníkov. Pri Filipovi som si rozšírila obzory o umelú inteligenciu s presahom do svojho života. Pri Tare som zistila, že aj s rodenou hovoriacou sa nemusím obávať komunikovať. Krásna bola aj prechádzka a spoločný obed.Ďakujem nielen lektorom, ale tiež vedeniu školy za možnosť zúčastniť sa projektu Erasmus. Ďakujem a prajem vám všetko dobré.
 
Na anglický kurz som odchádzala s obavami, keďže moje jazykové znalosti neboli na dobrej úrovni, už pri prvej pondelkovej lekcii som však bola milo prekvapená predovšetkým prístupom lektora Filipa a následne aj prístupom lektorky Tary. Veľmi ľudský, príjemný prístup, ktorý odbúral môj strach z výuky vzhľadom k tomu, že kurz bol vytvorený na mieru. Keďže nás vtedy bolo 7 študentov prebiehala výuka veľmi spontánne a akčne. Veľmi ďakujem, že mi bolo umožnené prežiť si a absolvovať túto životnú skúsenosť na International House Bratislava.
 
Príjemní ľudia,to znamená vyvážený prístup lektora a lektorky posúvajúci dopredu, ale aj rešpektujúci tempo účastníčok. To bolo motivujúce v snahe zlepšovať komunikáciu a ochotu, nebáť sa prehovoriť. Schopnosť a túžba hovoriť bola lektormi naozaj podporovaná.Taktiež kolektív účastníčok a ich príjemná vzájomná spolupráca boli pre mňa veľké plus. Vašu školu si zapamätám ako veľmi ústretovú, kde sa vyhovie aj malým detailom.

CLIL for Schools


Description
One of the latest buzzwords (or buzz-acronyms) in language education is CLIL. But what exactly are the benefits of Content and Language Integrated Learning for language learning specifically, as well as for content-based learning? In this course, participants will discover how CLIL lessons can be utilised in a variety of contexts in order to improve students’ content knowledge and language use.

Course participants will learn how to link curriculum topics to linguistic communication, and how language fluency can be developed in conjunction with subject knowledge. They will also look at the role that the language school can play, as well as the state education system, in developing these competencies. As well as providing a theoretical grounding, the course will offer a practical framework for CLIL lessons for a variety of student levels and ages in a number of subjects.

By the end of the course, participants will have learned about CLIL theory, the symbiosis of content and language learning, the role of the language school in providing CLIL lessons to a variety of levels and ages, adapting CLIL frameworks for different subjects, and how students’ specifically linguistic competencies can be nurtured and developed.
