English Teaching in Jeju at Jeju Foreign Language Learning Center

Programs facilitating English Teaching in Jeju continue to be rolled out throughout the province.

Jeju Foreign Language Learning Center recently announced that on April 27th, the 6th-grade students of Jeju Nam Elementary School had a real environment of experiential learning with a native speaker teacher in the 2022 school year.

The experiential learning consisted of participants’ prior education, cultural understanding education, and real model experiential learning.

In the cultural understanding education component, students had time to understand the cultural characteristics and historical facts of each country of focus, such as the United States, Canada, and South Africa. After that, the experience study room vividly reproduced environments such as airports, hospitals, currency exchange offices, department stores, restaurants, and grocery stores. Students had an opportunity to talk with native speakers using English expressions that can be used in real-world situations.

The students who participated in the experiential learning provided feedback like “I liked the experiential learning because it was real”, “The experiential learning with a native English teacher is so much fun and I want to come again”, “The experiential activity helped me learn English” and “I will continue to do this in the future.”

An official from the Jeju Foreign Language Learning Center said, “We plan to actively support this year’s real environment experiential learning to motivate students to learn English and increase their cultural sensitivity.”

The Maple Bear Debate Contest, which is the second one of its kind to be held this year, was conducted in a format where participating students went through 3 rounds and competed against each other’s themes in pros and cons. In addition, after the students on each team presented their arguments, the judges gave feedback to all students, encouraging them to debate with confidence.

Through these processes, the students exhibited more growth and development, and showed a heated competition atmosphere in which they listened to the other side’s remarks and presented their arguments with confidence.

Maple Bear in Korea

Maple Bear in Korea Rooted in Excellence

Maple Bear in Korea is a Canadian children’s English education program that also operates in other countries around the world. Founded in 2007, the company in Korea directly operates Maple Bear’s Songpa branch, and Dongbo Airlines, which operates the domestic distributors of over 30 foreign airlines, is the parent company. Dongbo Airlines is a mid-sized company with companies such as Boram Air, World Bridge Air, Anam Air, and Dongbo Airport Service as affiliates.

The reason why Dongbo Airlines Chairman Lee In-jae introduced Maple Bear to Korea stems from his relationship with Korean Air, where he oversaw the English education of pilots before establishing Dongbo Airlines. He wanted to introduce Canada’s excellent English education system to Korea, which he had encountered while dealing with airlines around the world, such as Air Canada and Austrian Airlines.

Maple Bear, headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, is an educational institution for children that operates more than 260 campuses in 13 countries, including Singapore, the United States, Brazil, and UAE, as well as Canada. It is characterized by an immersive education that naturally facilitates the learning of mathematics, science, music, and art in English by introducing Canada’s public education rather than simply teaching English.

It goes without saying that Maple Bear’s Songpa branch, which has a strong parent company’s sponsorship and a unique philosophy on English education, is loved by the local community.

Thanks to the success of the Songpa branch, which celebrated its 10th anniversary, the number of domestic Maple Bear campuses has increased to 12, including Pyeongchon, Bundang Pangyo, Mapo, Daegu, Daejeon, and Busan.

Maple Bear in Korea

Maple Bear opens up Canadian public kindergartens in Korea

Teaching English in Korea is being innovated through the introduction of Canadian public education concepts.

Maple Bear, an English education institution for preschool and elementary school students, has attained a certain amount of fame for learning English as naturally as their mother tongue without stress.

The curriculum, designed based on Canadian public education, was developed by experts who have been involved with Canadian public education for more than 30 years. In addition to curriculum development, they travel around the world to different Maple Bear locations to educate teachers and observe students, and are working to develop a more effective curriculum based on information obtained.

Instead of sitting at a desk to study, the whole class takes classes together and the teacher sometimes conducts classes in small groups, and various activities such as math, science, and art are prepared by the teacher for students in advance.

As such, Maple Bear helps teachers and students to discuss together, organize their thoughts and explore on their own and develops the power to collaborate with friends.

Another characteristic is integrated education. The Maple Bear class adopts themes that children of all ages will like, and based on that, various activities are conducted. Through this, children can directly experience and immerse themselves in the class independently and learn effectively.

Meanwhile, Maple Bear Global Schools is a global group with more than 200 campuses in 11 countries, including Brazil, Singapore, India, and China, as a specialized educational institution for elementary school children headquartered in Vancouver, Canada.

By infusing Canada’s public education in this kind of format, it provides an immersive education that allows students to naturally acquire mathematics, science, music, and art in English.

Currently, Maple Bear has 13 locations throughout Seoul, Gyeonggi-do, Daejeon, Daegu and Busan.
