New Quarter

New Quarter

The first week of January, students will start the first quarter of the year. During the first week of our 12-week ESL course, students will get to know their teachers and classmates. They will introduce themselves and play games to help them feel more comfortable in the classroom. Students will also be able to preview the schedule and read through the course syllabus. 

Teachers will also show students how to log in to our website. Students will be able to see their grades, attendance, and participation scores. They will also be able to see comments their teacher may leave them on how they are doing in the classroom, what they may need to improve on, or some words of encouragement for their progress. 

At American English Language School, we emphasize conversation in the classroom. Unfortunately, many students are shy at first to participate in the classroom. That’s why the first week of the course focuses on getting to know each other. 

Additionally, we try to keep the classes small in order to create a more comfortable environment. It’s also why we follow a quarter schedule. If there are students constantly starting and leaving throughout the course, it makes it tough for students to feel comfortable. 

Also, throughout the first week, students will start the pre-unit of their textbook. The pre-unit covers simple greetings and how to introduce yourself to others. At the end of the week, students will take a pre-unit test to review what they have learned. Students are able to log in through our website to access their scores. Teachers will also go over the test with students to help students understand what they got incorrect and why. That way, they know what to work on to improve for the next test.
