“If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere,’ sang Frank Sinatra about the toughest, most astonishing city of them all, New York City.
But what does it take to make it as an effective ESL teacher in New York? And how can you best prepare your students (Ss) for success using a New York approach?
In this four-part workshop we will explore some of the methodologies, strategies, and activities used by teachers at the City University of New York (CUNY) in the intensive CUNY Language Immersion Program (CLIP). We will work from an interactive four-skill approach—reading, writing, speaking, and listening—with a Content-Based curriculum in an Experiential Learning methodology. The essential take-aways from these workshops can be adapted to meet students’ needs in any context. Participants who attend all four sessions will receive a Certificate of Completion for “New York ESL Teaching Practices”.
Week 3 - ‘Reading Like You Mean It’
Pre-reading strategies such as activating schema, making predictions, and Visual Thinking Strategy (VTS), and reading techniques such as skimming, scanning, and supporting opinions. We will also use vocabulary building activities in support of our readings.
Please check our website or Facebook Events page for information about other 3 sessions.
Remember to bring your passport or driver's license.
This event is free.
The exhibition in America House displays major corruption schemes, as well as methods and approaches being used today around the world to fight corruption. It explains not only how corruption works, but also what is being done nationally and internationally to combat it.
The High Anti-Corruption Court of Ukraine, the Independent Investigative Body and the Independent Prosecutorial Body are the three institutions that have been created to combat high-level corruption in Ukraine. We’ve decided to invite representatives from each of these institutions as well as the independent media to discuss these questions and other work they do in their areas.
This week we aren't just a talking about corruption, we are actively making solutions to it. In the Advancing English Proficiency program we're acting out how we can respond to and avoid corruption and be transparent.
In this week's WE@AH speaking club, our theme is how we can respond to corruption and sharing how corruption has affected our lives (and how we can overcome those negative effects).

We would like to welcome all beginner-level English learners for a general English course at America House.

We decided to gather eight young and uncorrupt active citizens who want to share their stories of how an average Ukrainian (spoiler: not only Ukrainian) can fight corruption in their daily life. Come to see the fierce battle of those who resisted corruption's challenge!
