Nyelvi kompetenciák fejlesztése iskolánkban
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Our school thinks that English language is an important subject to teach apart from the Slovak language we were established for. This is also the market demand. This objective has become important in our Pedagogical program and the number of hours in the timetable. Teachers’ training courses for developing methodology in Slovak language are maintained and financed by the National Slovak Self Government thanks to the intergovernmental program. To improve the English language skills of the staff we have selected Erasmus + KA1 program. The English training course is aiming to introduce new methods we will be able to adapt for the Slovak lessons as well. We also hope to be able to use our five interactive whiteboards when new methods will be introduced. We want our pupils to succeed in the language exams in higher number. We also want them not to leg behind the others when entering secondary schools and being divided into groups in lessons of English language. The person chosen for the English training course has been very active in cooperation within Comenius projects of our school. These activities have used the active language. The above course is just for developing foreign language communication skills. The school is also looking for solving its continuous professional problem of what ratio should be proper between the grammar taught and communication used at language classes. This is usually the main dispute among the staff. What is more important: pupils’ communication or writing skills? Should we follow the textbook or the content of the curriculum? How to prepare effectively our pupils for successful state language exams? It is therefore important to share the experiences the teacher chosen for the course is going to get (also from the overseas participants and the course organizers). It is also important to compare how foreign language education in Scotland is organized. Also in the countries from which the participants care coming from. We want to know how Scottish cultural traditions and folk customs are implemented into the school curriculum. Our school wants to make a comparative analogy with the teaching methods we use for teaching ethnology of Slovaks. Representing a strong multi-cultural institution we would like to be included into the mainstream of the effective educational systems of EU. This is our first year of our applications within the new Erasmus + program. With this experience we also want to apply in the future during the new programme cycle.
