For six correctly completed ESL student surveys, 1 software program will be supplied. The final amount of resources is to be negotiated and agreed upon between the participant ESL teacher/organisation and Reinvent English. Please see website here for resources on offer.
Further information about this special offer is further down the page.
Reinvent English is a blog and a philosophy about English language teaching (ELT). One of its aims is to get learning English out into the real world. With the world as a classroom, anything is possible.
Perhaps walk along the Sydney coastline while on a treasure hunt then finish your adventure in a conference room at Bondi beach with dinner and drinks. Or learn vocabulary and grammar associated with golf in the clubhouse before walking out on to the course or driving range and teeing off.
Numerous studies have shown that ‘learning by doing’ is far more successful than traditional pedagogies. Reinvent English is experiential learning which aims to make ESL learning fun and unique. It is an idea whose time has come! Often the best day for students and teachers alike is excursion day, where the change of environment enhances the learning process.
Think of Reinvent English as a mix of study tour, event planning, excursion day, game show, variety show, conversation club, social event, class, corporate training and anything else really. Reinvent English gives both learner and teacher creative freedom to choose how to learn or teach.
To learn more about what international visitors (including students) wish to do while here in Australia we have created a survey of attractions based on categories in TripAdvisor e.g. Nature & Parks, Food & Drink, Shopping, Nightlife. The survey, called ‘Things to do in Australia’, is 10 questions that ask the student to rank their preferences from 1 to 5 or 1 to 10.
As an estimate it would take an intermediate level student approximately 30 – 45 minutes to complete the survey, depending on understanding of vocabulary. The last question of the survey ask for details of the age, sex and nationality (not name) of the student, as well as the school and teacher’s name, so resources can be allocated correctly. The survey could easily be completed in class or as homework.
This is a great opportunity to get a range of excellent resources for your school, your students or for yourself. It is done on a first come first served basis for resources, so please note that the yellow highlighted lines in the book list are resources already taken.
As stated on the first page, “As an approximate guide, for each three correctly completed ESL student surveys, 1 book or 1 CD or 2 graded readers will be supplied. For six correctly completed ESL student surveys, 1 software program will be supplied.
