Nyelvi és szakmai fejlődés partnerségi projektben való részvételhez
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Vermes Miklós Primary School is situated on the outskirts of Budapest, in Csepel. We have some students with learning difficulties and some from disadvantaged backgrounds but we also have lots of talented students. We have high standards but a snug and friendly atmosphere. Students of specialized classes have an increased number of lessons in maths and/or English. The school is a highly qualified Talent Point. In the centre of our program there are extra lessons of talent care where we can develop students' logical way of thinking and their skills for collaboration. Our school has always put a stress on implementation of new methods and to pass ready-to-use knowledge to the students. This is why we set up specialized classes and went on to do projects. So far we have finished two Comenius projects; one of them was about environmental topics dealing with global warming. During the other one the partners collected traditional games and showed them to each other. Both of them were in English. During the project our colleagues faced their limits. Their low level command of language weighed heavily on the English teachers in the time of the projects. Preparing for a new project the school head selected those members of the teaching staff who had an existing but worn off language knowledge, wanted to improve it and were ready to utilize the language skills acquired in a new partnership project. The coordinator of the program is Ferencné Paragi English language teacher who has already got some experiences in this field. She and Judit Szabóné Héjjas English language teacher, head of the human section of the school staff together with Edina Danku English language teacher applied for a 'Language & Methodology for Teachers of English' course l Anglolang Language School in Scarborough, while Beáta Mencigár, Barbara Kovács, Éva Licsár class teachers, Béla Patyi P.E. teacher and the school's cameraman, together with Imre Radácsi librarian and editor of the school webpage for the 'Better English for Teachers' course of IPC Language School inExeter. The language teacher applicants are going to take preliminary courses for their mates to prepare them for the program. They will talk about the British and Hungarian education system to be competently able to converse with other participants on the topic. After finishing the course they will translate descriptions of logic games to use and practice their newly acquired language skills and as a preparation for the next project. In the time of the project the participants will pick up new methods which they share with their colleagues in the scool and other teachers of our Regional Association of Language Teachers. Their students will benefit the most from the teachers' higher level language skills, as the English classroom management and the new methods will make the lessons more intimate and effective. Their language skills will enable them to play their part in the next project, too. This way and during the courses in England they can gain international relations, which they can groom later, and may be use up to create new projects. We hope that the project goes beyond the boundaries of the school and our district with the help of the school website and materials published on the eTwinning portal and would inspire similar actions.
