Global English at Earlscliffe
Earlscliffe | Ages 13 – 17
Global English is a motivational, stimulating and unique English language course. Global English is designed not only to maximise a student’s language development but to do this through using UNESCO’s ‘Four pillars of learning’: learning to know; learning to do; learning to be and learning to live together.
By investigating and discussing global themes using various methods, students improve their language skills, their critical thinking skills, and indeed both their independent and collaborative learning.
The global themes will excite and extend all abilities, from climate change, and the rights of child refugees to blogging, healthy lifestyles, and fashion. Through the wide selection of topics, students will develop their English language skills in the four key areas of reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
Students will experience a wide range of tuition methods including workshops, group projects, and debates. All lessons are designed to be highly interactive, motivational, and stimulating. Our dedicated team of teachers will provide students with feedback throughout their lessons, to support and encourage their learning. At the end of the course all students will receive a report outlining areas for future development.
Students will discuss pertinent global environmental issues, current approaches to tackling these, and work together to propose solutions. Alongside developing research skills and critical thinking, students will develop the relevant vocabulary to support them in presenting and defending their perspective.
Social media pervades global society. Through this module students will examine the positive and negatives of social media. Students will consider a range of case studies, including Cambridge Analytica, Online Trolling, and E-commerce.
Glastonbury, Coachella, and Woodstock. Together we’ll explore what makes music festivals special and how they celebrate culture. Students will consider what motivates people to attend festivals and the experiences they have.
