BGC English Workshop (Grades 5-8)

  • For Grades 5-8, the BGC English Program operates as a series of workshops.

    In the fifth and sixth grades, the students take part in 90-minute skill-developing thematic sessions, five times a week. Our native English lecturers tailor these sessions entirely to the interests of the students. Students continuously work on projects, where teamwork and creativity are encouraged. In this age group, we also consider it essential that English language acquisition continues to be playful, without the need for tests. Our most crucial motivating tool is the choice of the right topic and activity as well as positive reinforcement.

    Due to the increased demands of the Hungarian National Core Curriculum, in grades seven and eight, we offer three 90-minute English workshops-a-week.

    The last two years of the program have been designed with the aim of broadening students’ horizons towards the world around them and developing 21st century skills like collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, environmental consciousness or digital literacies. The continuous development of linguistic skills is integrated into the content-based programme. Through a variety of authentic input and task types, kids also become familiar with the strategies of learning a language and dealing with exam situations.

    Our main objective is to provide kids during the eight years of the program with everything they need to become independent language users at threshold level (B1) so that they can use the language efficiently in everyday life as well as in formal exam situations, and take ownership of their learning in the future.
