outreach: teaching kids
The San Juan English School Teachers use spare time between classes to teach at the local schools. Although the basics of English are taught at the schools, their pronunciation is very poor due to the fact that the teachers themselves do not speak English.
Class sizes can be up to 30 children. This requires many hours of preparation when designing the classes. The classes are designed around cultural concepts the kids can connect with.
Our multi media & karaoke classes capture the attention and imagination of the kids. We limit the classes to 30 minute sessions to maximize the attention span. Interactivity with our student is created by using 2 teachers during the classes. One woks with the multi media whilst the other engages with the kids.
This program has proven highly successful and widely accepted by students, teachers and parents.
