At IELEV Education Institutes, English is the second foreign language. The goal in English classes is to improve our students’ writing, speaking, reading and listening skills, plant global point of view and familiarize them with different cultures.
The English lessons start in the 1st grade and our aim is to make them participate in a student centered environment and learn with communicative activities. The students take 2 hours of English lessons in the 1st grade, 3 hours of English lessons in 2, 6, 8 grades and 4 hours of English lessons in 3, 4, 5, 7 grades a week. Improving our students’ critical thinking skills in English is one of our major goals. Thus, activities regarding speaking, writing, listening and reading skills are extensively involved in the curriculum. Our students are exposed to the English language the from beginner to the intermediate level and graduate at 8th grade as an intermediate learner. We organize activities for important days and weeks in order to improve their language along with the English culture.
Our students' show what they have learnt during the year with various activities and competitions. They show their creativity and how successful they are in English on this week which takes place with joyful activities.
Each December, we celebrate this day on which our students show up in very interesting costumes. We make pumpkins and bats out of paper and several activities which enhance reading, writing and listening skills. Our students also go for 'Trick or Treat' and have lots of fun with their teachers.
