GMRSKE Slovakia II.
Start date: 01 Jul 2016,
End date: 30 Jun 2017
Gymnazium M.R. Stefanika Kosice (GMRSKE) is a grammar school situated in Eastern Slovakia currently with extended language education. Legislative changes in the educational area effective since September 2015 have brought for foreign language teachers many challenges. English, German and French language teams in the school have identified foreign language methodology problems and the introduction of the CLIL method as the main challenges facing the school and its language teachers.In order to look for solutions to these problems we selected three courses taking place in English speaking countries and appointed three English language teachers to attend. Two of the courses focus on CLIL methodology where the first will be organized at ADC College in London in The United Kingdom and the second will take place at The University of Limerick- English Matters in Ireland. The Methodology and Language course at Anglolang is located in Scarborough in The United Kingdom. The courses will be undertaken during summer 2016.Participants will demonstrate their newly acquired skills at GMRSKE during the academic year 2016/17. Consultation, clarification and support for all members of staff will be available throughout the academic year. The GMRSKE management team will monitor progress, measure outcomes, research teachers and students on success of the new methodology.The expected impact of the project on GMRSKE is to upgrade language qualification levels and teaching competencies of our language teachers in keeping with European Union best standards in language education. This has to finally benefit our students in being more competitive in applying for EU University places or well capable to withstand the competition on the EU’s labour market if they opt for work experience after they complete secondary education.
