Each 90-minute session is divided into two 45-minute lessons. In Lessons 1 and 2, the emphasis is on functional English and communication skills. In Lessons 3 and 4, students work on a weekly project, which is incorporated with English in Action or Performance preparation (on alternate weeks), and excursion preparation work.

English in Action


Students and teachers work together to choose a weekly project topic for their class and then plan it together. Students are given help with vocabulary and strategies for how to complete their work. During one of the morning classes students go into town to complete the English in Action research component of their project, discreetly supervised by their teacher. Students can carry out a survey, use a questionnaire, interview people on the street, and then add this information to their project. They present their work to the rest of the class on the last day of the week.


English in Action is an excellent way of encouraging students to use their language skills in real-life situations and of bringing them into contact with native English speakers.
