Welcome to English Academy Online.
I am very happy to see you are reading this and that you are interested in my web page.
This is a site that is under construction and I will be updating it very often. I have been teaching for many years now and I considered it was the right moment
to take a huge leap forward and change to teaching English online.
I hope to see
you here very often and that the information and knowledge I put on this site is of
great help to you.
I plan to introduce “flipped classes” and to make the classes very “student centred”. A flipped classroom is an instructional strategy and a type of blended learning that reverses the traditional learning environment by delivering instructional content, often online, outside of the classroom. It moves activities, including those that may have traditionally been considered homework, into the classroom. This will enable the students to have more time to practice in the classroom, instead of having to spend classroom time listening to theory (this makes the class more “teacher centred”). I will post more about this in a very near future.
The term student-centred learning refers to a wide variety of educational programs, learning experiences, instructional approaches, and academic-support strategies that are intended to address the distinct learning needs, interests, aspirations, or cultural backgrounds of individual students and groups of students.
In my online classes, I will be using very updated equipment and resources in order to give the best service to my students. I have taken great care to select good tools to enable the students to have a very gratifying and rich experience. Good audio quality, neat presentations in videos and an interactive whiteboard which the students will be able to see in real time. Again, I will post a lot more detailed information so you really understand how I plan to do my classes online and you see the quality I offer in my teaching.
Hopefully, with all this, my intention is to make the students feel very comfortable and thus enable them to concentrate on the task at hand, LEARNING ENGLISH! Of course, this will be done in a very friendly manner, in a relaxed homely context to engage the students to the maximum and motivate them in such a way that they will enjoy growing into the language and see their efforts rewarded by being able to apply their knowledge of the language for their needs and necessities, focusing fully on your real-world goals, which is the main reason you, as a student, need to study English.
I will keep you well informed and give you the chance to have many resources as I put the web page together.
Thanks to all of you for reading my first post and for taking your time to visit my webpage.
