Teaching English in Gyeonggi-do Thru English Markets

Schools that are engaged in teaching English in Gyeonggi-do are trying new approaches to expand curriculum such as through the creation of ‘English market’ experiences.

On June 8th, Yeoncheon Daegwang Elementary and Middle School operated an experience-oriented ‘Daegwang Elementary and Middle English Village Experience Program’ in which all elementary and middle school students participated together with native English speakers from 7 schools in the area.

From 2020 to the present, Daegwang Elementary and Middle Schools, which have been selected to operate an English experiential program designated by the Ministry of Education, have been leading the learner-centered English reading program every year, operating an English market program in connection with English reading, and improving students’ communication skills and confidence in English.

This year, in the third year of the school operating such a program, the Daegwang Elementary and Middle English Village experience program was conducted as a meaningful activity to apply the English expressions learned so far in real life.

With the cooperation of 7 out of 10 schools with native speaker instructors, 7 experience zones (market, cafe, airport, airplane, hospital, movie theater, popcorn shop) were operated.

Principal Seon-geun Ahn said, “I hope that through practical English education, students will be confident in using English, respect cultural diversity based on their communication skills, and grow into great talents suitable for the era of the 4th industrial revolution.”

English Teachers in Korea visit Gyeonggi Schools

English teachers in Korea are being recruited and dispatched by the Gyeonggi Language Education and Training Institute who will operate a ‘School Visitation’ program in which native-speaking instructors support classes in elementary, middle, and high schools in the province from this April.

The Language Education and Training Institute prepared a school visitation program with native English teachers in Korea to improve students’ English communication skills and teachers’ ability to develop curriculum by providing classes for two weeks at schools without native speakers.

11 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, and 5 high schools are participating in this program, of which 12 are online, and 8 schools in Pyeongtaek, Hwaseong, and Osan are online and face-to-face.

According to the Language Education and Training Institute, the contents of this program include reading English based on English and American novels, situational conversations while traveling, learning international manners, and conducting speaking classes.

English teachers fully discuss and cooperate with the teacher in charge of the supporting school on the curriculum, student situations, and role of each teacher to support communication and learning-centered classroom implementation.

The Language Education and Training Institute is also planning to recruit students who wish to partake in next semester’s school visitation program in July.

Choi Hyun-joo, director of the Gyeonggi Language Education and Training Institute, said, “Students will naturally understand English-speaking cultures and engage with each other while taking classes with native-speaking instructors.” We will continue to work hard to support educational activities.”
