CONSULTANCY

We work closely with ESL programs in schools to build foundational processes for effective programs. We do this by screening, learning ways to track student progress, understanding referral processes, and strengthening curricula.

TRAINING FOR TEACHERS AND PARENTS

We offer ESL workshops for teaching staff, and parents, with the same tailor-made approach to ensure that you benefit from the areas that are most relevant to you.

ESL TRAINING:

Our workshops include:

• culture and language exposure
• BICS
• CALPS
• ESL curriculum
• progress evaluation
• goal setting
• development of screening tools
• targeted teaching
• data collection
• introduction to Colourful Semantics
• how to differentiate language disorders from ESL learning patterns, when to refer to specialists.

COLOURFUL SEMANTICS TRAINING:

This internationally acclaimed approach helps children develop their grammar. This process reassembles sentences by cutting them into their thematic roles and colour coding them, making learning a new language easy and fun.

This workshop provides instruction on:
• how to use colourful semantics
• activities to try in the classroom with a group or individuals
• guidance on how to incorporate this powerful method within the educational system of the school.
