We are enjoying our annual Easter egg coloring throughout the week. We love to pull out each student’s interest to make it into a deep conversation while we color eggs. Seems like they are more comfortable talking about their lives when we are just chatting like this.
Every activity lends itself to English learning😊. We really enjoy seeing how our students grow from hands on learning.
We spent our Saturday and Sunday building and preparing our vegetable beds. We’re excited to use these to add another dimension to our lessons.
This spring, we had special guests from Japan! Currently, they are our online students taking lessons every week from Japan. They flew from Japan using their spring recess.
It was so nice to see them in person!
Mattison English is so proud that many students stay connected with us and visit us from halfway around the world.
We believe the strong teacher and learner connection is one of the really important keys to improve toward anything they want to achieve on any level.
Time has come for the regents tests here in NY.
This is the end of the school year in the US and all the classes finish before the regents tests start. All the kids are expected to pass the tests to pass their classes. That means if they didn’t pass the tests, they have to go to summer school and retake the test again or take the class again next year.
It’s pretty hard for internatioal students to even understand the questions. Some interpreters are provided in the test room.
American or international students, they are all trying to pass the tests!
Good luck to you all and let the summer fun begin
