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.”
