In the International Elective today we talked with students from the International Business College, which is located in upper floor of Clark.
Students from China, Hong Kong, Spain, Korea, Myanmar and Vietnam were kind enough to come and speak with us.
It was an amazing chance to practice asking questions and to use real, natural English.
We look forward to meeting with them again!
Today, the student played around with the idea of interchangeable nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs. The mad-libs activity was designed to encourage the learners to realize where in the sentences most of these types of words are found. As long as the sentences are grammatically correct, even if it doesn't make any sense, the students can still have a lot of fun with it.
The students learn to study the EIKEN listening on their own. They are encouraged to listen to it 3 times and write down as much as they can. Then, they go back and check what they have written. The less correction, the more improvement.
Students in Clark are learning extensive reading to improve their reading speed. This can also be good for them when they take tests. The more they read, the more words and grammar they can pick up.
Clark students learn how to study on their own especially in their first year. Of course, the teachers will always make sure they are on the right track. It is important for students to be able to study outside of class, too.
Students in the 2nd-Year Communication Skills class today worked on trying to put all the information they gathered into an infographic. This allowed them to use their own English to try to explain Japanese holidays to foreigners. Some of them got very creative.
Students are taking a mock EIKEN test today. This is to let themselves see the progress that they have made so far in their English. The real test will come in the last week of January. So, this will be a good practice for them.
