In these times knowledge of languages is one of the most important things in the world, especially the knowledge of English is considered as obvious in modern global world. That´s why we start teaching English at our school from very early age . However, year by year the requirements placed on us, as teachers, are higher and higher. Every year more and more students want to study at bilingual high schools and they need to pass entrance exams. Our school system is trying to adapt to the world´s „English“ trend as well and Department of Education in Slovakia established testing students from English when leaving Elementary school. These facts led us to decision we must improve our teaching, our knowledge, our English that is not possible in Slovakia. If somebody teaches a foreign language the best way how to improve teaching and speaking English is to be educated by English-speaking trainers, to be in a touch with native speakers and also to see and feel the atmosphere of the country. Then your teaching becomes more interesting, more enjoyable and more effective for both – students and teachers. The objectives of our project are as follows: - improved learning performance; - increased self-empowerment and self-esteem; - improved foreign language competences; - enhanced intercultural awareness; - better awareness of the EU values; - increased motivation for taking part in European projects in the future The participants involved in the project are teachers who are originally teachers of other subjects. Thus they do not feel confident and competent enough in the role of language teachers which reflects in their lessons and the lack of confidence in their abilities and skills. The retraining programme was very short and not intensive enough to give them enough experience and develop all necessary skills to perform their job to the highest standard. Main activities are structured courses aimed at the improvement of language competence as well as methodological skills. The main activities will be carried our by Anglolang School, Scarborough which acts as a partner in this project. The expected impact is on the institution, on the participants as well as on the target group of learners, mainly: • enriching personal and professional competence • improvement of language and communicative competence • the ability to create positive atmosphere in the classroom • growing professionally and personally, bringing new ideas and experience to the school • huge language benefit • adapting teaching to different learning styles & learning needs • adapting activities & tasks for different purposes and levels • update knowledge and deepen experience of state of the art language teaching methodologies. • reinforcement of good quality teaching • humanizing the teaching process • training of other colleagues thus having a qualified and motivated staff • higher credit of the school among parents and pupils • possible international cooperation with other schools in the future • cooperation with other schools in the region sharing the best practises • learning which will be more enjoyable and memorable • students´deeper interest in learning • humour and vitality in lessons • relaxing and motivating learning environment The results of the project will have long-term impact on the school as a whole, its teachers and students and will help it gain better credit among parents as well as students and will be able to better prepare the pupils for their future life in the European Union and for their future studies within Slovakia and potentially abroad. The school will be able to implement newly gained knowledge and skills into its curriculum and develop the other members of the staff on a regular basis. The school is also planning to cooperate with other partners from abroad on international projects and exchange programmes within K2 of Erasmus plus.
