Archyvas: 'AnglųMokykla "Supermokytojas"/ ENGLISH SCHOOL "SUPERTEACHER"' kategorija

I want to share with you some photos of the new inspiring door plate for my English teaching office. I have  used some scrapbooking materials as well as a dialogue from “Alice in Wonderland”, some office paper;  the arrow for “motivation sign” has been paper cut and had its edges burnt. I would appreciate your comments and opinion here in “Rasyk komentara”. If there are any technical problems, you can comment in blogger.com here.  Thank you.

Jau kuris laikas turėjau kūrybinį galvosūkį, kaip atnaujinti kabineto durų iškabą. Misija - pakeisti primityvų, niekuo neypatingą užrašą į smagesnį, geriau  kabineto paskirtį ir jame dirbančių žmonių požiūrį atspindintį “vaizdinį”.

Šiandien kabineto durys pasipuosė

Kadangi labai mėgstu įkvepiančias nuotraukas (”motivation” ir “rodyklės“) , citatas ir visokiausius užrašus, lentelei panaudojau porą nuotraukų - paveiksliukų ir citatą iš “Alisos stebuklų šalyje“. Rodyklė esanti apačioje su užrašu “motivation”, buvo iškirpta iš “pergamentinio” popieriaus ir gerokai apdeginta. Tekstas atspausdintas Typewriter šriftu. Skrebuko pavadinimą iškirpau iš to paties vyšnių spalvos dokumentų dėklo storo popieriaus, kurį panaudojau pagrindui. Vyšnių spalvos popierius realiai yra šiek tiek tamsesnis. Apatinę baltą juostelę, kuri yra tokio pat aukščio kaip ir viršutinė, apkarpiau su Picasa, kad viešai nedemonstruoti ten esančių kontaktų.

Iš arčiau

Taip atrodo durys

Dauguma mokinių nesuprato, kad viskas yra atlikta rankomis (handmade). Manyta, jog viskas spausdinta kompiuteriu :).

Naudotos priemonės:

- Basicgrey,  Wassail dvipusis popierius (šviesus)

- dokumento dėklas ( vyšnių spalvos storas popierius, turintis savo “raštą”)

- lipni dvipusė juostelė - klijai Scotch (acid free)

- dekoratyvinis rašomasis popierius (”pergamentinis” - rodyklei ir tekstui)

- kartoninės raidės

- Hampton art raidės- štampukai

- Dovecraft juodas rašalas (jet black)

- auksinis ir juodas geliniai rašikliai

ir…kantrybės, kruopštumo bei para laiko viską sudėjus :).

-Keliaujantis dienoraštis - MY idea of a travelling notebook was described here in 2010.

In 2011 August, I was addressed by a young teacher Jolanda from the Netherlands who got interested in the “project” and wanted to join in making and exchanging the notebooks.

Discussing the details and our expectations took approximately a week and finally we decided - we had about 2 months to fill in the book (the size of 60-70 sheets), send it on 26th September in order to receive it on a special for us occasion - 5th October -Teachers’ Day.

I really enjoyed making this travelling book, though it was time-consuming I must admit. I put all my heart and shared different kind of ideas. We are supposed to ship the notebooks this week!

****

And finally… I received a travelling notebook from Jolanda! A thick notebook full of photos, stickers, ideas, descriptions. Different from mine, of course, but so similar in the way of creativity…

I enjoyed reading it and there some teacher ideas that I’m going to use. By the way, did you know issuu.com - a website  full of free magazines? Check it out!

It was a great experience to exchange notebooks and I hope I’ll have another chance to do it  with another creative  person from a close or distant country. I must confess one thing - I felt more inner satisfaction making a book and “giving myself” to a person than receiving it. (Jolanda, I hope you’ll understand me correctly - I’m very grateful to you for your notebook :) ).

What do you think about travelling notebooks?

Ruošiuosi rugsėjo pirmajai

Getting ready for the new school year

Šiais metais… jokių tradicinių angliškų plakatų ant sienų, jokių pabodusių paveikslų, jokių vazoninių gėlių, išskyrus  dvynukus pūkuotus kaktusus arba gyvas gėles kartas nuo karto, jokio kito “įprastinio niek(al)o”…

Šiais metais… asmeniškos, mokytojo(s) pomėgius ir potyrius atkleidžiančios smulkenos (laikas mokiniams pamatyti, kad mes ne tik mokytojai), malonios smulkmenos padovanotos mokinių, kūrybiškoms užduotims skirtos detalės ir viskas, kas pravers nors akimirką įprastinei pamokai suteikti  gerų emocijų…

Noriu pasidalinti mažu įkvėpimo gurkšneliu su jumis

1. Ant ištemptų palei sieną virvučių sąvaržėlėmis “prisegti” atvirukai, nuotraukos, piešiniai. Reikalui esant, galima greitai pakeisti eksponatus, o jų turinį panaudoti kaip temą rašiniui, kalbėjimui, žaidimui ar pasaulio pažinimui, nes manieji atvirukai atkeliauja iš įvairių šalių.

2. Šalin popierių krūvas ir sąsiuvinius nuo palangės. Paslėpkime juos tvarkingai spintoje. Šios smulkmenos skirtos lavinti visus mokinių, o gal labiau mokytojo (? :) ) pojūčius: vos vos ošiančios kriauklės iš Atlanto, vis dar Prancūzija kvepiančios levandos, arbata iš Londono, kankorėžiukas iš Tauro kalnų Turkijoje, smulkios puzzle detalės pirštukams palavinti (jeigu mokiniai pradės “muistytis” dėl testo nerašymo ar atidėliojimo, pažiūrėsim ar įveiks puzzle per minutę, kad išsiderėti geresnes sąlygas!)

3. Rėmeliai su vaikystėje kolecionuotais pašto ženklais ir visų mūsų mėgtais personažais. Spalvota knygutė su angliškais žodžiais ir … saldūs kukurūzai (kas sakė, kad mokiniai per pamokas valgyti gali, o mokytojai tai jau ne? Juokauju…bet pasistiprinti reikia.)

4. What’s new this week/Kas naujo šią savaitę?” lenta ar stendas, ant kurio(s) galite “sukrauti” viską, kas jums ar jūsų mokiniams miela. Periodiškai keiskite smulkmenas. Pas mane šį kartą kaba “Summer bouquet” arbatos pokeliai, pažįstamo fotografo kelionės nuotrauka, turinti savo istoriją, įkvepiantis pasakojimas apie išsipildžiusias svajones, atvirukas su  vasarą įvykusiomis karališkosiomis vestuvėmis, kelionių magnetukai, paveikslėlis su angliškais gėlių pavadinimais, “crazy” sakiniai ir net “smėlio” laikrodukas.

5. Įvairūs angliški, iš žurnalų ir laikraščių iškirpti žodžiai, iš kurių vienas mokinys turi sudaryti vieną gramatiškai teisingą, bet “crazy” sakinį. Jeigu angliškos spaudos neturite- ne bėda, pirmoje nuotraukoje žodžius iškirpau iš LT žurnalų, tereikėjo tik šiek tiek daugiau pastabumo. O galite ir atspausdinti savo temų žodžius - bus labiau “į temą” :). Ketvirtoje nuotraukoje pirmieji darbai - “prigavau” savo privatukus. Įvertinkit jų meną!

6. Klasėje taip pat pakabinau DU lapus: oranžinis skirtas bendros istorijos kūrimui, kai vienas mokinys gali parašyti tik vieną žodį (kabės tiek laiko, kol gausis pasakojimas), o baltas - žodyno kalendorius- vienam naujam žodžiui per dieną, mėnesio gale - jų bus 30. Galima panaudoti testui ar žaidimui.

7. Mėgstu piešti fraktalus. Kodėl gi jų nepanaudojus “What’s new this week” lentai ar nepatalpinus į rėmelius? Ant atsarginių tuščių rėmelių spalvotais flomasteriais angliškai užrašau “Ką norėtum čia matyti?” - bus užduotis mokiniams suorganizuoti padorų, bet įdomų “turinį”,kurį keisime kas kelias savaites.

8. The last but not the least. Duris galime dekoruoti užrašu ar šūkiu, juos  periodiškai (ne)keičiant. Nepatingėjus nueiti į “kuistukus”, galime į klasės biblioteką įtraukti šiuolaikinės anglų kalbos romanų, ne vien klasikos. Mini-magnetinė lenta su savaitės dienų magnetukais padės nepamiršti testų ar namų darbų, kuriuos uždavėte savo moksleiviams. Kaip mokomąją priemonę galime naudoti kelionių žurnalus, lankstinukus, o jeigu niekur nekeliaujate, įvairių “freebies” parsisiųskite nemokamai iš interneto. Beje, turizmo info centrai taip pat turi visokio “angliško” gėrio.

Būsiu labai dėkinga už grįžtamąjį ryšį. Kuri idėja jums patiko labiausiai, ką įgyvendinsit? O gal nepatingėsite brūkštelti, kaip jūs “atnaujinote” klasę prieš mokslo metų pradžią? Thanks in advance :)

Anglų kalbą teoriškai pradėjau mokytis 5-je klasėje, nes dažniausiai viską nusirašinėjau nuo klasiokų,  o tikrąja to žodžio prasme, 10-je, kai kitas pogrupis sulaukė griežtos, pagal tuometinius standartus senmergės mokytojos, kuri buvo nuoširdžiai atsidavusi anglų kalbai. Ėmiausi iniciatyvos: parašiau prašymą direktoriui, perėjau į stipresnį pogrupį, tuo sukeldama savosios anglistės pasipiktinimą, ir tikrai pradėjau mėgautis anglų kalbos pamokomis. Anglų egzaminą išlaikiau 9-ukui (tokie klasėje buvome tik  dviese, kiti pažymiai žemesni) ir stojau studijuoti anglų kalbos, nes turbūt nieko geriau nemokėjau :) .

3  DALYKAI man LABIAUSIAI padėję IŠMOKTI anglų KALBĄ buvo ŠIE:

1. Susirašinėjimas (tikrais laiškais) su užsieniečiais (mokiausi kopijuodama jų frazes, ieškodama naujų žodžių žodyne, galvodama kaip tinkamai pavartoti gramatiką, o svarbiausia -visai smagiai leisdama laiką, juk taip smagu gauti laišką).

2. Kitų žmonių mokymas (dariau namų darbus seseriai, aiškinau gramatiką pažįstamiems; man šis būdas buvo efektyviausias).

3. Knygos (filmų gauti tais laikais- 1996/98- nebuvo galimybių, tad žodyną platinau skaitydama, skaitydama, skaitydama; kalbėti/ klausytis irgi labai svarbu, bet tuomet nelabai buvo su kuo).

Koks jūsų pats pačiausias trejetukas? Gal tai konkreti knyga, filmas, žmogus, situacija? Pasidalinam?

I officially started learning English in the 5th form (grade), however, it was only an imitation of learning English, as I was copying all the answers from my classmates. In fact, I  began to learn the language in the 10th form, when the other part of the class (in Lithuania a class is usually divided into 2 groups during English classes) received a new, strict, spinster (according to those times standards) teacher, who had been sincerely devoted to the English language. I took some “measures” and was transfered to the other group. Soon enough I started to improve and the lessons turned into really enjoyable ones. After school graduation, I chose English studies as my profession.

3 THINGS that HELPED me TO learn/improve MY English:

1. Corresponding with foreigners in English (snail mail).

2. Teaching other people/doing homework for my younger sister.

3. Books ( films in English were not commonly available in Lithuania around 1996/98).

Thus, here I am, filling this blog not only with my ideas, but also asking you to share your experience with the present students. What 3 particular things (a book/film/person, situation, activity) are the ones that helped YOU?

I’ve come across some interesting English jokes and decided to transform them into grammar exercises for practising articles. The full version of 3 English jokes goes first, so you might have fun while reading it. Below, you’ll see 3 prepared exercises with empty spaces for missing articles.

Kaip dažnai būna šiais laikais, ieškodama vieno dalyko internete, užtikau keletą linksmų angliškų anekdotų. Norėdama, kad juos perskaitytų mano mokiniai, sugalvojau juos “paversti” pratimais, skirtais įtvirtinti angliškus artikelius. Realybė tokia, kad kai kurie žmonės vengia artikelių, nors tu ką. Jei norite tiesiog paskaityti, jums skirta pilna “pirmoji” versija. Norintieji pasispraktikuoti artikelius ar panaudoti “pratimus” savo mokiniams, keliaukite  žemyn prie “antrosios“.

School Daze

It was at the end of the school year, and a kindergarten teacher was receiving gifts from her pupils.

The florist’s son handed her a gift. She shook it, held it overhead, and said, “I bet I know what it is. Some flowers.”

That’s right” the boy said, “but how did you know?” ”Oh, just a wild guess,” she said.

The next pupil was the candy shop owner’s daughter.

The teacher held her gift overhead, shook it, and said, “I bet I can guess what it is. A box of sweets.”

“That’s right, but how did you know?” asked the girl. “Oh, just a wild guess,” said the teacher.

The next gift was from the son of the liquor store owner. The teacher held the package overhead, but it was leaking. She touched a drop of the leakage with her finger and touched it to her tongue.

“Is it wine?” she asked. “No,” the boy replied, with some excitement.

The teacher repeated the process, taking a larger drop of the leakage to her tongue.

“Is it champagne?” she asked. “No,” the boy replied, with more excitement.

The teacher took one more taste before declaring, “I give up, what is it?”

With great glee, the boy replied, “It’s a puppy!”

The Art Collector

(šaltinis/ the source)

A famous art collector is walking through the city when he notices a mangy cat lapping milk from a saucer in the doorway of a store. He does a double take.

He knows that the saucer is extremely old and very valuable, so he walks casually into the store and offers to buy the cat for two dollars.

The storeowner replies, “I’m sorry, but the cat isn’t for sale.”

The collector says, “Please, I need a hungry cat around the house to catch mice. I’ll pay you 20 dollars for that cat.”

And the owner says “Sold,” and hands over the cat.

The collector continues, “Hey, for the twenty bucks I wonder if you could throw in that old saucer. The cat’s used to it and it’ll save me from having to get a dish.”

The owner says, “Sorry buddy, but that’s my lucky saucer. So far this week I’ve sold sixty-eight cats.”

A bank loan

(šaltinis/ the source)

A businessman walks into a bank in New York City and asks for the loan officer. He says he is going to Europe on business for two weeks and needs to borrow $5,000.

The bank officer says the bank will need some kind of security for such a loan. So the businessman hands over the keys to a Rolls-Royce parked on the street in front of the bank. Everything checks out, and the bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. An employee drives the Rolls into the bank’s underground garage and parks it there.

Two weeks later, the businessman returns, repays the $5,000 and the interest , which comes to $15.41. The loan officer says, We are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is; why would you bother to borrow $5,000?

The businessman replied: Where else in New York can I park my car for two weeks for 15 bucks?

Ar jums teko rašyti motyvacinį laišką? Universitetui, dėl darbo ir pan.? Ir kaip sekėsi? Kai kuriems paprastai tam reikalui įkvėpimo netrūksta, bet kaip jų meną įvertins gaunančioji pusė, ne visada žinomas reikalas.

(Nuotrauka iš http://bubblegumgymkat.wordpress.com )

Man patiko Kerniaus Kuolio tinklaraštyje esantis įrašas apie motyvacinio laiško rašymą studijoms užsienyje - logiškai praktiški patarimai.

Aš labiau linkusi pasidalinti gyvais, mano nuomone pakankamai stipriais savo studentų motyvaciniais laiškais , prie kurių redagavimo/vertimo šiek tiek  prisidėjau ir aš. Beje, šių laiškų autoriai tikslą pasiekė ir jau ruošiasi išvykimui iš LT.

Svarbu, kad laiške būtų:

  • taisyklinga lietuvių arba užsienio kalba;
  • aprašyti visi tokiam laiškui “reikalingi” punktai;
  • atsiskleistų Jūsų asmenybė: mąstymas, požiūris, savybės, pomėgiai;
  • jaučiamas jūsų entuziazmas ir išskirtinumas (net jeigu kalba eina apie paprastus dalykus).

“Media and communication studies have attracted me since the moment I read about them. I realized that this course is right for me because for the last few years my interest in the area of media has considerably grown. Therefore, most of my leisure time involves socializing, writing and taking part in the organization of public events. Obviously, media and communication studies will help me to get a deeper insight into this area, as well as to develop skills useful for my future career.

As I have mentioned before, my interest in one of the fastest – growing global economies has evolved enormously during the last few years. I spend a part of my free time with different people organizing or volunteering in ecological and musical events. Thereby, meeting new people and having to work in a team taught me not only to be flexible and tolerant but also how to calmly handle intensive situations. Furthermore, I have participated in writing contests for several times. In fact, a few of my articles were published in a local newspaper. Nevertheless, writing a blog is one of the most enjoyable things I do in my leisure time.

When I joined the organization, called “Kitas Variantas”(it’s a voluntary organization from Lithuania), I gained invaluable experience. Time – managing, visualization, oratory are just a small part of what I have learnt there. In the beginning, learning the basics of time - planning was a struggle to me. It took me a lot of practice  until I started to plan my time efficiently. Even though I thought I had an active lifestyle, people from this organization showed me that I could do even more. Therefore, I started attending lectures about success and an efficient way of life given by well – known people from my country. Every lecture gave me an opportunity to meet at least a few amazing people whose confidence boosted mine.

All these extra curriculum activities that I have been involved in, contributed to the growth of my personality. Spending hours watching independent movies as well as reading books by my favorite authors such as Shakespeare, John Irving, Thomas Hardy and Albert Camus had a huge influence on my system of values and imagination. Due to these and other inspiring activities such as listening to music, dancing, horseriding and travelling, I became a broad – minded and creative person.

The more I am aware of the media and communication course, the more I want to start studying it. I think, studies in the UK will be a challenge to me which will test me as a personality. Nevertheless, I am keen on getting started, because my passion for becoming a freelance journalist and an event organizer is growing everyday.”

“I am a university student, currently finishing the final year of my law studies. I would like to acquire a Master‘s degree at your university while studying International and European law and I would choose the direction of EU law. This letter will reveal what events, facts and personalities have significantly influenced my choice.

I was born in a small Lithuanian town. At that time Lithuania was still a part of the Soviet Union. However, two years later my country regained its independence. I am very glad I have had an opportunity to grow up in an independent, free of any regime, country which has been cherishing its language and culture. I can claim that Lithuania has been developing along with me as well as I have been developing along with my country. Soon enough, in 2004, a small but ambitious country, Lithuania, became a part of both NATO and EU. I can still recall the 3rd of May, 2004, when our Geography teacher asked us: „How do you feel about being the new citizens of EU?“ Most of them answered that it was the same, they did not see any difference. I, on the contrary, understood that this citizenship opened a lot of doors to many possibilities such as travelling, studying and working without restraint.

I have visited many European countries. I have been fascinated by the liberal attitude in the Netherlands, French culture and history, German order, Belgian trilinguality and the citizens‘ ability to relax in Italy and Spain. I have also visited Turkey for four times. It is a beautiful country with a well developed tourism infrastructure, it is also the one full of contrasts. Due to the latter reason, I can hardly imagine Turkey becoming a member of EU, although it has been waiting for the membership for more than 40 years. The big cities such as Ankara, Istambul and resort towns are western-style, people who live there are broad-minded. However, province residents are greatly affected by religion as they follow the traditions of blood revenge, women‘s rights are still ignored. The country‘s politics towards Cyprus and unwillingness to admit Armenian genocide during World War I also raise doubts. It is also essential that only a small part of Turkey belongs to the continent of Europe. I believe that cooperation relationship with this country should be strengthened and the question of membership should be rejected.

While graduating school, I was sure that I wanted to study law. I reached this goal with determination and graduated school with a commendation award. I was probably afraid of studying abroad straightaway, as I have mentioned, I grew up in a small town – the capital Vilnius seemed to be the town of many possibilities at that time. I enjoyed my Bachelor studies, however, the national law did not appeal too much for me to devote my future to it.

According to the syllabus it was obvious that EU law will be taught during the final year, so at the end of year 3 I started to learn French, as it is the main language of EU institutions. My French is A2 now and I hope I will be able to continue French classes. In fact, EU law has attracted my attention since the first lecture. As I was eager to deepen my knowledge in this field, I joined an EU law club organized in our department. Together with other students I prepared as well as presented a scientific report „ Changes in EU institutional system after the Treaty of Lisbon “ in an international conference. This report was published in a university scientific conference publication „The event of Scientific Idea - 2011“. I also contributed to organizing a law quiz for our colleagues. The EU law club is not the only activity I am busy with in my freetime. I am also a member of a junior lawyers‘ branch which is a part of Lithuanian lawyer association. I gained most experience in this branch when I was a team member of a national project that lasted for a year. The aim of the project was to encourage Lithuanian public spirit. During this project we organized the fairs of non-governmental organizations in 5 biggest towns of Lithuania. In addition, our branch also provides non-governmental organizations and Lithuanian citizens, who cannot afford, with free of charge law consultations.

After this programme I would like to work in the field of Human rights protection. As I have already mentioned, the candidate Turkey violates women rights. However, this country is not the only one, where human rights are not completely protected. Lithuania is not an exception. Although my country has been actively implementing EU law acts in its law system, even now Lithuania does not have a law which regulates gender reassignment, we always stumble on human rights. The representatives of sexual minorities are often ignored in Lithuania, criminal law investigation is delayed and pre-trial investigation material is publicized. I hope these infringements happen due to the fact that Lithuania is still a young state and its great officers are very conservative as they were brought up and educated in the Soviet period. I think, there will be many changes when the new generation, which will have grown up in an independent country, travelled and been educated in the West, comes to power. I am also very interested in politics, I will do everything to be among those people who will change Lithuania and will make it equal to other west European countries. Lithuania negatively distinguished itself when the president Rolandas Paksas was unseated by the parliament impeachment. However, European human right court has recently adjudicated that Lithuania had violated Rolandas Paksas‘ rights while interdicting him to take part in the parliament elections. The whole nation is proud of the current Lithuanian president Dalia Grybauskaitė. She performed her duties well in European Commission and now she is a great example for all women how to seek one‘s career.

I believe that my studies abroad will help me to gain valuable life experience and to go deeper into EU law. My decision to study in the Netherlands was influenced by the country‘s development in both economic and law fields. In addition, the Netherlands is one of the countries which had founded Coal and Steel community, which eventually became European Union. I have once visited your country and it made a big impression on me. This has encouraged me to learn more about your country‘s culture and history as well as to have a closer look how EU mechanism is functioning in the Netherlands.”

Laiškuose trūksta kreipinių  (pvz. “Dear Sir or Madam”) ir paskutinės baigiamosios eilutės (pvz, “Yours faithfully”), bet manau rašantieji žinos, ką pridurti formalios kalbos stiliumi.

Laiškus gauti būna malonu? Dažniausiai. Pranešimus ir sąskaitas? Šiaip sau. Bet pareiga yra pareiga, ypač kai moki už tai, kas priklauso.

Bet praeitą penktadienį (jau 2011m.) gavusi pranešimą apie tai, kad 2010m. balandį nesumokėjau darbinių patalpų nuomos, buvau lengvai šokiruota.

Biurą nuomuojuosi padorioje vietoje,  šį balandį bus 2 metai, kai vos ne kasdien vaikštau į šį verslo centrą. Nuoma apmokama gyvai arba pavedimu. Nuo to “lemtingojo” balandžio visada pradėjau mokėti gyvai, kvitelius ir dokumentus saugau pagal galimybes, bet būtent to mėnesio kvitelio nerandu. Galų gale ne mano  pareiga kvitelius saugoti. Mano pareiga laiku sumokėti, ką kiekvieną mėnesį ir darau.

Pinigus priima ir kvitą išrašo administratorė. Viską skaičiuoja buhalterė. Teoriškai yra galimybė, kad nesumokėjau. Bet realesnė galimybė,  kad sumokėjau!

Administracija porą kartų yra akcentavusi, kad esu viena iš nedaugelio laiku sumokančiųjų, kad jie turi didelius įsipareigojimus bankui ir kad kiekvieną mėnesį laukia nuomos pinigų, kaip išganymo. Argi galėjo nepastebėti tuomet, kad “nesumokėjau”?

Pirma mintis, gavusi sąskaitą, “kažkaip reiks sumokėti”. Šiek tiek atvėsus “pala, o kodėl turiu mokėti antrą kartą, galbūt apmokėti kažkieno padarytą klaidą?”

Savo asmeninėje knygutėje, kurioje sąžiningai rašausi kiekvieno mėnesio išlaidas ir pajamas, yra pažymėta - 2010/04 “sumokėta už biurą 855lt”.

Kaip išspręsti šį klausimą?

Reklama: „ENGLISH for LUNCH“

2010/11/15 startuoja „ENGLISH for LUNCH“ - užsuk “užkąsti” ANGLŲ kalbos kartą per savaitę per pietų pertrauką.

KAIP tai vyksta? Susitinkame kartą per savaitę sutartu laiku, pvz. 3niais 12:00-13:15. Gaunate pamokos programėlę ir pagal ją atliekame šnekamosios anglų k. užduotis. Jeigu reikia – yra visos sąlygos užkąsti (išgerti arbatos ar pasišildyti sumuštinį). Juk visgi pietų pertrauka! :)

Planuojame grupelėje turėti iki 4-5 labai panašaus ar vienodo lygio šaunių žmonių komandą, daug kalbėtis, atsipalaiduoti ir netgi panaudoti žaidybinius elementus pagerinti jūsų virškinimui!

KUR vyksta? Mūsų patalpose, Kareivių 6-409, Vilnius. Kaina – 80lt mėnesiui, apmokėjimas už mėnesį iš anksto.

Susisiekite: Anglų k. mokykla „Supermokytojas“, tel. 8606 56119, manokursai@gmail.com .
