Before your class
Your teacher will set up a pre-class assignment with relevant questions for you to discuss on Teams with your classmates (in English!). This assignment can be anything from a reading or listening from your course book, a relevant video or article, or a Flashpoint from EC Online. Your conversations will be monitored by your teacher and progress recorded online.
During your class
You'll collaborate via video with small groups of 4-8 students from around the world and your teacher where you’ll outline your objectives and goals, discuss the questions and task from the pre-class assignment, review any questions and set up the post-class collaborative activity as well as the pre-class assignment for the next day.
After your class
You'll be asked to work on an English writing or speaking post-class collaboration activity which you will upload on Teams. Just like with the pre-class assignment, you can discuss virtually with your classmates and your English teacher can monitor the chat, giving feedback and error-correction where necessary.
