Prvi navedeni aljem vam im prijavite grupu, a ostale nekoliko nedelja pred polazak.

    - Treba da pomognete svojim acima prilikom popunjavanja formulara: a) posebnu panju obratite na navoenje nivoa znanja deteta (precizirajte

    koliko dugo ui, po kojim programima, udbenicima, esto se deava da su naa deca naprednija od vrnjaka iz ostalih zemalja). Moete da navedete i ta bi voleli da nastavom bude obuhvaeno, koje teme, oblasti, date svoje sugestije. Takoe, deca e na prvom asu imati zadatak da se predstave, kau nekoliko rei o svojoj zemlji i odgovore na par pitanja SOL-ovih profesora da bi oni mogli da procene kako se deca snalaze i koji su nivo

    b) ukoliko deca ne vole ljubimce ili su alergini na njih, obavezno navedite da im smeta ako su psi i make po kui (kao to verovatno znate, veliki broj engleskih porodica voli ljubimce i dri ih u kui)

    c) ako deca ele da budu sa nekim od svojih prijatelja u istoj porodici, obavezno navedite (kao i ako ele da budu s nekim iz druge zemlje, to se i preporuuje za starije, da bi to vie koristili engleski. Leti je velika guva i u porodicama je obino smeteno od 2 do 5 dece)

    e) Uz formular, treba da poaljete i sliku, sve skenirate i prosledite na gore navedeni mejl (ako nemate skener, moete sliku poslati i mejlom, samo uz sliku obavezno navedite i ime osobe!)

    - Svako od vas dobie i pozivno pismo SOL-a koje treba da ponesete uz ostala dokumenta za vizu (prolog leta su nam slali potom na kunu adresu, meutim to nee biti neophodno, ja u vam svima proslediti mejlom, pa ga samo odtampajte)

    - im sakupite grupu i odaberete termin, savetujem vam da rezerviete avionsku kartu! Moete se obratiti agenciji Fly Fly Travel u Beogradu (koja pronalazi najpovoljnije letove i moe da uva rezervacije), kontakt u toj

    agenciji je Bojan ivkovi, a njegov telefon je: 060 358 56 78. Sa njima imamo dogovor, upoznati su sa naim terminima, uvae nam rezervacije za leto.

    - to ranije kupite kartu, to e vam biti povoljnija cena! Pri odabiru letova, jako je vano da vam let za London bude ujutro, a u povratku birajte kasni popodnevni ili veernji let (SOL autobus uvek eka ake na dogovorenom terminalu na Heatrowu oko 12 ili 13 asova, tako da je vano da do tada stignete. Takoe, u povratku, kreemo iz Devona rano ujutro, predvieno je razgledanje Londona sa njihovim vodiem, a zatim nas voze na aerodrom)

    - Ukoliko elite, pored 10 dana navedenih u prethodno datim terminima, moete produiti boravak u Britaniji za jo nekoliko dana i provesti ih u Londonu. U tom sluaju, SOL e vam rezervisati hostel, a cene noenja sa dorukom su oko 20 evra. Potrebno je da sve to na vreme najavite jer se i hostel plaa unapred (SOL plati, a vi njima kad doete tamo)

    - U Londonu ima raznih hostela, mi emo, ako elite, traiti smetaj u jednom kojim smo bili zadovoljni prolog leta Smart NHS Russell Square, evo linka: http://www.smartbackpackers.com/hosteldetails/United-Kingdom/London/Smart-NHS-Russell-Square-Hostel/index.htm,

    - na odlinom je mestu, ist, nov nametaj (nemojte oekivati previe, to je, ipak, - studentski smetaj, u spavaonama je od 6 do 10 osoba, zajedniki toaleti za vie

    soba i sl. Ako elite, moete i sami da potraite smetaj koji bi vama odgovarao na internetu, veina tih hostela omoguava rezerervacije i plaanje putem interneta)

    - Da li ete u Londonu ostati pre ili posle kursa zavisie i od datuma i vremena leta, a to sve dogovarate i usklaujete sa agencijom Fly (naravno, mene obavetavate kako bih mogla da vodim evidenciju o polascima grupa)

    - Iako nije meu obaveznim dokumentima koje podnosite za dobijanje vize, preporuuje se da ponesete i dokaz o kupljenoj avio karti (kako bi se uverili da nameravate da ispotujete navedene termine za boravak u Britaniji)

    - Kao grupa, imate slobodu da putujete kojim god letom vama najvie odgovara, niste obavezni da kreete sa ostalima iz Srbije koji e biti u istom terminu sa vama u SOL-u (npr., ako ivite u Subotici, moda vam je jeftinije i jednostavnije putovati iz Budimpete ili Temivara). Vano je samo da budete u dogovoreno vreme u Londonu kada dolazi SOL autobus po sve vas i vozi vas u Devon.

    -Od oktobra 2009. god, potrebno je prevoditi originalne dokumente sa srpskog na engleski : https://www.visainfoservices.com/Pages/Content.aspx?tag=Welcome_Page

    - Ne zahteva se da stranke uplauju zdravstveno osiguranje. S druge strane, preporukaje da se ipak uplati osiguranje, ne zbog dobijanja vize nego radi sopstvene sigurnosti. To osiguranje ne morate poneti sa sobom u ambasadu

    U ambasadu je potrebno doneti sledee dokumente:

    Dokumenta za dete:

    2 fotografije pasokog formata na beloj pozadini, ne starije od 6 meseci, 3.5x4.5

    Ako dete pohaa asove u privatnoj koli stranih jezika i ide u pratnji nastavnika te kole, potrebna je potvrda i iz te kole (na memorandumu, potpis vlasnika)

    formi bankovnog izvetaja ili potvrde o mesenim primanjima roditelja)

    4. korak pripreme za put i korisni saveti

    - Kada dobijete vizu (savetujem vam da aplicirate na prolee, nemojte ekati leto jer su tada vee guve; svakako, pre kraja kolske godine kako bi deca mogla da uzmu i potvrde iz kole), moete poeti sa pripremama za put

    - Nakon to prijavite grupu, bie potrebno uplatiti 10% avansa na raun SOL-a, kao sigurnost da ete doi u terminu koji e za vas biti rezervisan (naravno, tih 10% odbie od ukupne cene kursa koju uplaujete kad stignete tamo)

    - Na vama, nastavnicima koji vode decu, je da odluite da li elite da prikupljate novac u ratama od svojih aka do leta ili ete savetovati roditeljima da ostavljaju sa strane i vode rauna o tome

    - Jo jedna vana stvar: kao to znate, SOL je neprofitna organizacija i kao takva nema sredstava da, kao komercijalne kole, plaa nastavnicima koji dovode decu i avio kartu. Svi vai trokovi u Britaniji bie pokriveni (prevoz od Londona do Devona i nazad, smetaj, tri obroka dnevno, izleti), pa vam savetujem da to objasnite i roditeljima i traite da svako dete koje vodite plati odreeni iznos kojim bi mogli da pokrijete bar cenu karte (to bi, npr., bilo oko 50-70 evra po detetu). Uvek to moete da poredite sa nainom kako funkcionie u dravnim kolama gde svaki nastavnik koji vodi decu na ekskurzije ili rekreativnu nastavu dobije lep honorar. Vaa je odgovornost velika, pomaete im pri organizaciji, aplikaciji za vizu, prevodite dokumenta i zato bez ustruavanja moete da traite da vam se za taj trud plati

    - Dobro pripremite i decu i roditelje za taj put:

    a) Poto ete vi u Britaniji da odgovarate za njih, jako je vano da deca budu posluna, da se ne izdvajaju iz grupe i nita ne rade bez vaeg znanja i saglasnosti (u samom Devonu nee biti problema jer su im dani u potpunosti popunjeni i uvek je neko sa njima porodica domaina koja ih vozi u kolu i vraa kui, u koli su sa nastavnicima i sa vama, na izletima sa vodiem i ponovo sa vama, za veernje izlaske moraju da trae vae odobrenje. Meutim, ako odluite da provedete i nekoliko dana u Londonu, to je drugaija situacija, ogroman grad, tamo bi sve vreme trebalo da ste na okupu!)

  • Uputstvo za putovanje u Englesku

    www.premiercentar.com strana 8

    b) Vano je da deca znaju ta podrazumeva boravak u tipinoj engleskoj porodici: svi su ljubazni i trudie se da vam dane koje provodite kod njih uine prijatnim. Meutim, zbog kulturolokih razlika, drugaijeg naina ivota o odnosu na onaj kakvim mi ivimo, tu moe doi do problema tipian primer je njihova hrana: ujutro e vam sluiti po nekoliko vrsta itarica sa mlekom ili ajem, tost sa maslacem i demom; za ruak ete dobiti lunch box u kojem je sendvi, ips, voe, sok, okoladica; oko 17.30 jer glavni, kuvani obrok.

    c) Ohrabrite decu da budu otvorena, da to vie priaju sa domainima i ljubazno im kau ukoliko im neto smeta ili ne odgovara. Svakako, vi ste prva osoba kojoj e se oni poveriti i ako vam prijave bilo kakav problem, treba odmah da prenesete ljudima iz SOL-a kako bi ga reili. Mnogi su, na primer, bili iznenaeni kada su u kupatilu videli dve odvojene slavine, za toplu i hladnu vodu, to je tipino za engleske kue (primetiete i na mnogim javnim mestima), ali i kadu sa takvim slavinama bez tua! Veina kua ima i dodatak za tu, ali deava se i da vam pokau gde stoje posudice za vodu kojima se polivate dok se u kadi kupate! Ukoliko deci unapred spomenete ovakve primere, shvatie to kao jedno novo iskustvo.

    d) Znam da e vam svi roditelji rei da su njihova deca lepo vaspitana, ali na sastanku ipak naglasite da u porodicama treba da se ponaaju pristojno, ne prave nered, spremaju svoje sobe i kupatilo, potuju domaine i ono to im kau

    e) Za naredno leto imamo i spisak porodica kojima smo bili izuzetno zadovoljni, pa emo traiti da nae ake ponovo smetaju kod tih ljudi (imamo i crnu listu, a zamerke su se uglavnom odnosile na istou, veliki broj kunih ljubimaca ili hranu)

    f) Recite roditeljima da bi bilo lepo da deca svojim domainima poklone neku sitnicu, najee suvenir, kao znak panje (ne moraju nita skupo da kupuju), a domaini njima poklone neto pri odlasku (mada se deavalo da im spreme samo sendvie za put)

    - Meu stvarima koje obavezno treba da ponesete su:

    a) funte (vie se isplati kupiti ih u Srbiji, mada moete poneti i eure, pa tamo menjati), pored iznosa koji treba da se uplati SOL-u, individualno je koliko elite da ponesete za deparac (nosi se izmeu 100-500 funti)

    b) lekove (neki analgetik: fervex, andol, brufen; probiotik; protiv munine u putu; ako ima neto to redovno uzimate, nemojte da zaboravite, vlane maramice)

    c) kiobran ili kabanicu (vreme je jako promenljivo, nekoliko puta u toku dana izmenjaju se sva etiri godinja doba)

  • Uputstvo za putovanje u Englesku

    www.premiercentar.com strana 9

    d) patike i ravne cipele (pripremite se za mnogo peaenja, svakog dana ide se na izlete i u obilaske)

    e) garderobu da moete da se obuete slojevito (ne mnogo letnjih stvari, nekoliko dukseva i jakni, velike su temperaturne razlike u toku dana, prosena temperatura leti je izmeu 17-22 stepena, ali jutra i veeri su svee). Uostalom, nemojte mnogo garderobe nositi, ostavite mesta u koferu za stvarice koje kupite u Engleskoj!

    - Fen ili peglu ne morate da nosite, kao ni adapter za struju, to e vam dati domaini

    - Ako budete ostajali u Londonu, kupite dnevnu kartu za metro (ima i popust za grupe, kao i za decu, obavezno se raspitajte na alteru), tamo se besplatno moe dobiti i karta sa svim linijama metroa, kao i plan Londona, jako je jednostavno snai se;

    - Restorani po Londonu su prilino skupi, na svakom koraku imate po neki fast food, gde je neto povoljnije, a preporuujem vam hranu iz Tesco marketa (na koje ete nailaziti gde god da krenete). Imaju ukusne sendvie, gotova jela i salate, seckano voe sve upakovano u posudicama sa priborom za jelo kota oko 1 1.50 funti, slino je i u marketima Marks&Spencers, samo malo skuplje. Obavezno probajte sokove Inocent (ima ih u malim flaicama i litarskim pakovanjima, to je sok od ceenog voa bez dodataka, fantastine kombinacije, svi smo bili oduevljeni)

    - Ulaz u muzeje je slobodan, osim za Madame Tussauds za koji je potrebno mesecima unapred rezervisati ulaznice, London Eye se plaa oko 17 funti. Ako elite da idete u oping, onda je Oxford Street pravi izbor.

    - Kad spominjem oping, neizostavno moram da vam navedem irsku robnu kuu Primark (najvea je u Londonu, ima i u Exeteru i Barnstaplu), gde ete nai lepu i kvalitetnu garderobu po neverovatno niskim cenama!

    - Knjige su izuzetno jeftine, SOL ima svoju second-hand bookshop gde moete nai knjige od 50 penija do 3 funte, a esta su snienja i u ostalim knjiarama

    - Devon je poznat po poslastici Cream Tea, to e vam i oni rei, a vodi e vam preporuiti poslastiarnice u kojima je najukusniji, obavezno probajte!

    - Kad budete na izletu u Tintangelu (gde je dvorac i muzej kralja Artura), obavezno probajte Cornish Pasty, jo jedan od specijaliteta (susedne oblasti, Cornwall)

  • S L Sharing One Language

    OPEN PROGRAMMES 2013 For smaller groups

    SOL, Bridge Chambers, The Strand, Barnstaple, Devon, EX31 1HB, UK. E-mail: [email protected]

    Our very successful English language and culture programmes are now in their 22nd year. We

    have now welcomed almost 40,000 students to them, almost all from Eastern Central Europe.

    All students come as part of a group with their regular teachers where pre-visit consultation

    ensures that what we provide is what will most help the students! So... no individual students!

    Since SOL started, we have run these programmes for individual schools, or groups of schools,

    who travel together, usually by coach. These run throughout the year.

    IN addition for the summer period from June 23rd to the end of August we will be running in

    Bideford and Tiverton our popular open programme for any size group which we join with

    other such groups once they arrive in England. It means whatever size your group is, you pay

    the fixed price of 475 for a 10 day programme, 410 for 8 days and 380 for 7 days. The arrival

    dates are pre-set and are indicated below with all the other conditions.

    The overwhelming feedback on our programmes is outstanding. These are not like language

    schools courses. They are a total language and cultural experience and the main aim is

    simple to give students an immersion in the real language and to give them confidence to

    use English naturally and at a level to suit each of them. Only a relatively small part of the

    programme is spent in the centre as we maximise the fact that they are in England. So we

    give them fieldwork tasks which require good observational skills as well as giving them the

    chance to talk to lots of people. Other tasks are given to them to do with the host family each

    evening. Families provide a lot of help with this and having things to talk about helps build

    that important relationship in a relaxed environment. If a student only has a short time with

    us, we want that time to be used to the maximum, and those evenings are very important!!

    The daytime is usually divided into two; one half in the SOL centre, the other on short trips or

    other activities including The Town Challenge. The time in the centre is conversation driven

    with a lot of group work and is very much related to the students observations, the time spent

    with the families or in the activities or visits undertaken. It makes for a very integrated

    experience. The visits are all to beautiful and interesting places, often at the Atlantic coast.

    POINTS TO NOTE

    One teacher place is free for every 8 students (there may be a small charge if the group is smaller)

    These are the BEST VALUE quality English language experiences in the UK!!

    10% deposit confirms the booking early booking is essential for holiday periods!

    We are open ALL year! The climate is moderate thanks to the Atlantic Ocean a few km away!

    The price is FIXED and INCLUSIVE - no hidden extras, other than any special requests e.g.

    Youth hostels, or visits after leaving Devon.

    Most programmes involve 10 days (9 nights) in England. Shorter programmes are possible.

    There is a full 8 hour programme each day except Sunday which is a family day

    Students will be placed in friendly and supportive families, where possible this is with a friend

    as we know they speak more English this way. Each evening is spent with the families.

    One half-price place is available for children of accompanying teachers if their own group has

    15 or more students.

    We will cover any administrative expenses incurred by the organising teacher, so no teacher

    will be out of pocket organising a group.

    The number of working groups will depend on the number of students and their relative

    levels, but a typical average ratio is approximately 1:15.

    The safety and security of students are paramount - and the small towns we are based in

    provide a very safe environment. Evenings are with the families unless there is a special

    request from the visiting leaders for one occasion.

    SOL is a small organisation and treats everyone personally before during and after the stay

    We work with the accompanying teachers and want the time in England to as far as possible

    link in with the work done back home. We are working on preparatory and follow up material.

  • LOCATION

    SOLs three centres are all in Devon, a beautiful county in the South West of England.

    Barnstaple and Bideford are market towns in North Devon, 300 km due west of London and

    Tiverton is in mid Devon about 50Km nearer London! This is the REAL England!!!

    THE FAMILIES

    All families have been carefully selected and are personally visited in their homes by SOL, to

    ensure that we only use good, supportive friendly hosts. They provide all meals (including a

    packed lunch), and they take responsibility for getting the student safely to and from the SOL

    centre. If any problems arise, they are dealt with on a personal level.

    Bedroom accommodation will provide necessary privacy, though we hope that much of the

    evening time and Sunday will be spent with the family itself. Most families enjoy welcoming

    more than one student at a time and we know that when friends are placed together they help

    and encourage each other to use English far more than when on their own or with a student

    from another country. Occasionally students from different countries are in the same family.

    Students and teachers are asked to complete a simple personal information sheet in order to

    help us match families and guests as far as possible. These sheets need to be received by us

    6 weeks before arrival but much earlier if visas are required.

    TRAVEL

    The price includes direct transfer from London (hostels or airports) and the return as detailed

    below. It is often possible to include visits on the way if flight times permit. Our priority is to

    ensure flights are met, so coordinating of pick-ups and drop offs may require some patience.

    Groups wishing to spend time in London are advised to stay overnight in London.

    WHEN TO VISIT

    The Open Programmes are planned to run in the period June 23rd to the end of August,

    although it is possible for one to form at any time throughout the year if there is demand. The

    summer is very busy so we urge teachers to discuss with their Head about a term-time visit if

    possible!! The educational value to a student of such a trip is unquestionable!! It benefits

    more than their English and is perhaps the most significant experience of their school career.

    As for the weather, the climate is moderate in all seasons, and the good sunshine record is

    one of the reasons why it is such a popular holiday area. Although it can be unpredictable,

    most groups find it much better than its image!! When it rains, it rarely lasts long. Summer

    daytime temperatures are normally between 16 and 25C. Bring something windproof though!

    SOL will arrange to meet each group at a London location (airport or hostel) at an agreed time

    up to 14.30 before travelling to Devon via Stonehenge. Groups whose best flights arrive after

    14.30 must fly the previous day and overnight in London (SOL can help with this).

    Departure from Devon will be at 06.30 on the leaving day and will be direct to London central

    or airport, as required. Return flights cannot be booked before 13.00 from Heathrow or 14.30

    from the other London airports on that day. London accommodation should be booked so as

    to fly back the day after if the only flights back are earlier than these times.

    We will do our best to minimise waiting times and for some small groups we may need to

    arrange for public transport to a meeting point. We cant guarantee to offer additional

    sightseeing at the time of booking. However once the make-up of the final group is known

    then it may be possible to offer this, possibly for a supplementary payment.

    Since 1991, S.O.L. has received ALMOST 40,000 students and 5,000 teachers on its various courses in N Devon. SOLs excellent reputation is well known, yet it has maintained the lowest prices you will find for courses of such high quality and none more so than for its teacher training courses. These are offered to teachers at a highly subsidised

    price if no EU grant is available. These continue to be held in Barnstaple, the Capital of N Devon. This area is one of the most beautiful parts of England, with the spectacular coast of the Atlantic Ocean close by.

    We are offering THREE Courses for 2013. ALL OF THEM can be subsidised by SOL if no other grant is available*:

    All courses are highly practical intensive courses for teachers of English looking for inspiring and refreshing ideas for their teaching, wanting to experience the cultural life of real England and to develop their own language knowledge in the process. You will also feel you have had a holiday in this beautiful area!

    Accommodation is with host families, who provide all meals, including packed lunch on course and departure days, and, where needed, transport to and from the centre each day. The success of the courses is greatly enhanced by the quality of our host families, who offer warm hospitality to guests and also time in the evening for relaxed conversation. This really is an excellent opportunity to spend time communicating in English naturally - something that most teachers dont often get time for! The time with the host families is so often underestimated by other institutions. But for many it is the highlight of the course and provides excellent language development! Here, maybe with a teacher from another country also on the course, conversation is relaxed and natural with friendly hosts and in a natural home setting! There will be some social evenings planned as well.

    Application for any course should be made by letter or e-mail at any time to SOL durect. Once you have confirmed your ability to take part, we will send all details regarding payments, and an information sheet, which we will ask you to complete and return to us. This helps with the planning of the course, travel plans and placement with an appropriate host family. A 10% deposit is all that is required to book a place.

    Travel to and from England is the individuals responsibility and is not included in the price, though advice can be given. SOL however will organise all travel to Devon for morning arrivals in London on the arrival day. The journey will include a stop at Stonehenge. Heathrow Terminal 5 is the meeting point, which is accessible from all London airports. Transport to Devon is included in the price as is all travel within the programme. At the end of the course, the group will be taken back to Heathrow and London Victoria by noon. Those with later flights will be able to have a short sightseeing in London.

    Overview The courses are run by trainers who have current and considerable experience of teaching and teacher training in central Europe, so you can be sure the whole course will be relevant to your needs. It is an intensive but very enjoyable course offering teachers of

    English a unique combination of new interactive classroom strategies, improved confidence in speaking English and a varied and well planned cultural experience. Our summer 2012 courses saw participants from eleven different European countries + Morocco and several of them even had a surfing lesson as well! The Daily Programme runs from 08.30 to 18.00 with an hour for lunch. Each programme is different and is detailed overleaf. Free time for discussion and independence wont be forgotten and for shopping SOL is situated next to the town centre!

  • Course 1 : Authentic British Language and Culture: July 3rd 14th

    TUTORS: MARK ANDREWS & UWE POHL

    Being by the sea in Devon is a stunning setting for the exploration of culture and language in Britain. Most people do not think of Atlantic beaches and waves when they first think of Britain. There is no such thing as the real Britain, but we can explore a slice of British life over a period of 11 days and then reflect on what is particular to Devon, what is Englishness and how spending time in Devon contributes to your picture of Britain. As well as digging deeper into local culture, the course has a strong language development aspect as well. We demonstrate a methodology which is rooted in intercultural skills and are modelled on the course and which you can develop in your students back home. We will also look at ways of working with the authentic materials which you collect as you travel round some of the most beautiful parts of England, immersing yourself in Devon life through meetings with local

    people and your host families

    o Trainers will model an approach to communictive langauge teaching which involves and engages students more in shaping their own learning.

    o 'Fieldwork' visits form an integral part of the course, involving finding out about issues in the local communtiy. o Other tasks will encourage participants to discuss contemporary language and cultural issues with their host families. o There will be opportunities to meet people involved in surfing, charities, green issues, fair trade and a visit to a school. This

    year we invited the wives of the soldiers based at Chivenor, made famous by their choir and the song which was the Christmas Number 1 in Britain.

    Course 2: The Reflective English Teacher: July 14th 25th

    TUTOR team led by SIMON PARKER

    Hearing about new teaching ideas at conferences, in books and in journals is one thing applying to your own teaching is quite another! This is the ideal course for teachers determined to bridge the gap between theory and practice and improve their classroom teaching. Taking a strong 'evidence based' approach to professional development, the course will allow participants to experiment

    with new teaching strategies that they can use immediately when they return to their home countries. The course will naturally make full use of SOL's location in SW England to help develop participant's awareness of contemporary British language and culture.

    By the end of the course participants will be able to use a focused range of interactive teaching strategies. These will include:

    Drama and dialogue activities Preparing students to deliver formal presentations Use of images in the classroom Five minute activities Creative writing tasks Use of music and song lyrics Formative assessment strategies (Assessment For Learning)

    o Trainers will both demonstrate new strategies and, explain why they are effective in the classroom o Where appropriate, links will be made with preparing students for specific exams commonly taken in Central/Eastern Europe o The trainers will often differentiate to meet needs of teachers teaching young learners, teenagers and adults at all levels. o Throughout the course participants will be encouraged to reflect on their own classroom practice and critically evaluate new

    strategies, often through discussions with other participants on the course o Participants will have opportunity to try these activities out in lesson planning and micro-teach activities

    Course 3: Devon Unplugged: Aug 4th 15th

    TUTORS: LUKE MEDDINGS & MARK ANDREWS This completely new SOL course is based on a methodology which values spontaneity, thinking on ones feet and learner

    contributions. It will model a way of working that can be applied in many teaching situations and which is based on topics and language that emerge on the course. Project work will be negotiated with the teachers and much of the course will involve interaction with local people. Both Luke Meddings and Mark Andrews have worked with teachers in Devon and this course will break new ground for teachers on a course which values a less is more approach, breaks down the barriers between inside and outside the classroom, promotes choice and encourages teachers to help their learners to take more responsibility for their learning

    By the end of the course participants will Have got to know Britain better through going to a beautiful part of the country by the sea where you there will be many

    opportunities to use and listen to English spoken by a wide range of people in the local community? Have got to know North Devon in an unplugged, materials-light, conversation-driven way? Will have taken part in an experience which leaves plenty of space for teachers own decision-making regarding both the

    content and the process of the course? Have experienced the classroom as a place where we an unplugged approach is explored, Have worked with what participants have discovered while out and about in North Devon and discussed how this way of

    working might be integrated into teachers own classroom contexts. Have seen how the inter-connection with the sea, history, lifeboats, lifeguards, everyday life, holidays etc. help with the

    understanding of another culture and both motivates and accelerates students learning.
