About course

In the online course, young learners aged 13-14 do not learn English by memorising grammar and vocabulary. We believe that learning by exploring is much more effective. Through exploring and discussing inspiring content, young learners acquire language skills easily and enjoyably. In the course we therefore use the proven CLIL method (Content and Language Integrated Learning), where students learn a foreign language through interesting topics from different areas – nature, technology, science. They acquire a varied vocabulary and the ability to communicate on a wide range of topics without fear of making mistakes. Lessons are dedicated to improving all language skills – reading, writing, speaking and listening.

Packed with interesting topics, the lessons will motivate young learners, laying the foundations for good information handling, which they will use in their further education. They will strengthen skills such as the ability to argue, debate and think critically. They will begin to systematically build an identity in English that will enable them to perform well in their further studies and later in the labour market. Thanks to the Task-based Learning method, we will also develop young people’s ability to work in teams.

We divide students into groups depending on their language ability and level (Pre Intermediate-Intermediate-Upper Intermediate). We will arrange the grouping at the first lesson, each student will be placed in a way that suits his/her level of the course. In this course we use CLIL World Natural & Social Sciences 4 or CLIL World Natural & Social Sciences 5 textbooks, chosen specifically with the needs of the level group in mind by our tutors.

Who is the course for

For young students who, towards the end of their primary school studies, are not satisfied with their school English and would like to spend more time on it to develop all their language skills - reading, writing, speaking and listening. And learn new things about themselves and the world in the process.

Teacher

Sam Patre

If Sam hadn’t become a passionate teacher, she would have been a comedy actress. A mature optimist that will always make you feel welcome.

She has gained a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from India and TEFL, TESOL and TEYL certificates from Thailand.

What he values the most about teaching is “the privilege to help spread knowledge. It is a feeling that cannot be compared to anything in the world. By being a teacher I can learn something new every day and it helps me in becoming a better person”.

Sam comes from India and has been a teacher at The Bridge since 2019.

She has outstanding communication skills. Her enthusiasm is infectious and can inspire students of all ages. She is patient, responsible and speaks multiple languages.

Sam is a philanthropist and loves cooking, especially for others. While she looks like the embodiment of an extrovert, on the inside she is quite the opposite. She often finds calm and relax in solitude.
