ENGLISH LANGUAGE EDUCATION IN TED ATAKENT COLLEGE KINDERGARTEN

OUR GOALS

The main aim of our English program, practiced by Turkish and native speaking teachers, is to make our students love English, to make them aware of the possibility of communicating in another language, and to emphasize the benefits of learning the target language.

LEARNING STRATEGY AND METHODOLOGY

• In our programme, which aims to improve verbal communication, which includes the active learning model, our students will learn and live with language, enjoy listening and speaking English, and reinforce their knowledge using as much as possible in their daily lives.

• A variety of game-based activities provide for active participation of learners in language use, workshops, and using foreign languages they learn in different areas. Drama, TPR (Total Physical Response), music and puppets are the most used methods for effectively using language. Rich audiovisual instruments play a major role in reinforcing what they learn about daily conversation activities, songs sung in motion, rhymes and games.
• In the context of English activities, it is our aim to reach every student with different teaching techniques by using hands-on activities, music and movement-based activities, computer assisted activities, drama, science/nature/culinary activities, story books and projects considering that the students have different learning styles.

• In our English program, supported by different branches, we try to create opportunities for our students to learn, use and learn by living in their everyday lives.
