EnglishWorks TECh focuses on the development and improvement in its students’ ability to communicate in English.
We use Technology as the context for learning English vocabulary and for conversation practice.
Students have the opportunity to hear and speak English throughout the lessons, using digital tools in the classroom. They also have in-class support from teachers and volunteers.
EnglishWorks operates in low-income areas of Rio de Janeiro where residents rarely have the opportunity to interact with native and/or fluent speakers of English. We use Skype for one-to-one conversation practice between native/fluent speakers and students. This gives students a chance to use the English they learned in class and to go further in conversations if they are ready for it.
One-to-one conversation with native/fluent English speakers also exposes students to different cultures.
The goal of the volunteers:
The main goal of the Skype volunteers project is to increase the opportunities for students to hear and speak English.
