- increase the level of proficiency according to the SERR teachers
- to give more motivation to our teachers

After the introduction of the compulsory teaching of English language from the second grade at our school we strive to develop foreign language communicative competence of our pupils efficiently. We consider as particularly important to create a positive relationship to languages, other cultures and learning languages. In the second grade we have one lesson of English language a week, in the third and fourth grade we have three lessons a week. Pupils of the zero and first grade have an opportunity to attend the section with playful learning English. The positive is that 100% of teachers teaching English are full qualificated. Teachers of Primary Education have increased their qualification by four year studying of practical language and didactics of English language at the university.
Our organization has chosen six teachers to the project. They are employees of our staff with a permanent employment relationship. They teach English competently in the Primary and Secondary Education of basic school system. Language skills are of different levels according SERR and according the length of their pedagogical service record. Teachers have chosen these courses according to their level of foreign language preferred areas of interests: Language Improvement for Teachers, Language & Methodology, Creativity in the classroom. The courses are organised by the partner organizations Bell, Cambridge and ISP in the UK. These universities have many years of experience with the education of teachers from different countries of the world.
After returning from the course we are planning to meet other colleagues, who will be informed about the process and outcome of the mobility project. During English lessons our pupils will have the benefit from acquired skills, new teaching methods and materials. We will focus on history, culture, habits and the traditions of the country during the preparation and realization projects. We expect to increase the motivation for learning, improve language competence and tolerate other cultures. After the effective language training our pupils will have the wider opportunities on the labour market in Slovakia and abroad.
For the parents of pupils we will prepare open lessons of English language. We will organize a seminar for colleagues from different schools. It will bring closer possibility of further teachers´ education by completing course and getting to know the available materials.
Explanation of the information to other colleagues in Slovakia will be provided by the Internet and print media.
