Power Speaking

Purpose

The EV Academy ESL curriculum is the product of extensive research into the best techniques and strategies to teach and learn English. The backbone of our curriculum is the Communicative Language Teaching approach, which focuses on teaching students how to use language in real-life situations instead of being just a rote learning exercise. We value meaningful language at EV Academy, so we provide plenty of opportunities for oral expression with guided feedback.

The classes have been developed to address student learning needs, especially for those who will be using English in their studies and travels overseas. Our teachers have been given the best preparation available to be on hand when students learn, as well as give efficient correction and guidance.

Our materials and class activities adhere to the learner outcomes set by the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), a standardized description of language ability. The levels describe all learners, from the breakthrough A1 stage to the advanced user at level C1. We challenge our students to meet these outcomes in class, and prepare them to be able to take on the next level up.

Man to Man classes

MTM 1: Fluent Speaking
Materials:
  • How Now Brown Cow – A Course in Pronunciation of English by Mimi Ponsonby
  • Speaking for Everyday Life 1 by Scott Fisher & Brian Stuart
  • Painless Speaking by Mary Elizabeth, M.Ed.
  • Speaking for Everyday Life 1 by Scott Fisher & Brian Stuart
  • Let’s Talk 3 Second Edition by Leo Jones
  • Speaking for Everyday Life 2 by Scott Fisher & Brian Stuart
Speech demands controlling a number of diverse skills at the same time. It can serve the purpose of transmitting information, telling a story, motivating people to act or some combination of those. Sharpening one’s sensitivity to stress within words and to rhythm in longer speech can be carried into real life and finds application in real conversation. Fluency is the ability to produce language easily and smoothly. Good speakers communicate and get their message across smoothly, even though they may make mistakes. Communication is the most important part of speaking and it is important to communicate your ideas as naturally as possible.
MTM 2: Conversational English
Materials:
  • A Conversation Book 1 English in Everyday Life by Tina K. Carver & Sandra F.Riggs
  • Top Notch Copy & Go 1 by Joan Saslow & Allen Ascher
  • Conversation Strategies by David Kehe & Peggy D. Kehe
  • Top Notch Copy & Go 2 by Joan Saslow & Allen Ascher
  • Compelling Conversations & Quotations on Timeless Topics
  • Written, compiled & edited by Eric H. Roth & Toni Aberson
The course aims to equip students with a degree of confidence in their own communication skills. This involves the many facets to developing speaking skills that go along with linguistic and sociolinguistic skills (grammar, vocabulary and usage.) Stimulating lively lessons that engage the student are a vital channel toimproving fluency and expressiveness. At the same time, the activities are designed to be nonthreatening that will enable the student to develop strategic conversation skills that help the speaker/listener keep a conversation going to its natural or desired conclusion.
MTM3: The Lexicon
Materials:
  • Baron’s Essential Words for the TOEIC 3RD Edition
  • Vocabulary in Use Intermediate 2nd Edition by Stuart Redman
  • Cambridge University Press
  • English Collocations in Use by Michael McCarthy & Felicity O’Dell
  • Cambridge University Press
Reading comprehension and vocabulary knowledge are strongly correlated. Limited vocabulary prevents students from comprehending a text. Copying definitions from the dictionary is not an effective way to learn vocabulary. They need to learn words in context, not stand alone lists that come and go on a daily basis. The course focuses on words based on context and meaning, not memorization. People think with words, therefore to improve thinking there is a need to increase one’s range of English vocabulary. How to choose a word that fits the context and has a more precise meaning is what this course provides. Approaching vocabulary in a variety of ways paves for a better understanding of the relationship between words or ideas in a structure, thus, building higher level skills in critical-creativethinking.
MTM4: Effective Communication
Materials:
  • Activities for Building Conversations by Michael Rost
  • Large List of English Idioms from A to Z
  • Compelling Conversations & Quotations on Timeless Topics
  • Art of English Interview
  • Basics in Speaking by Michael Rost
  • Painless Speaking by Mary Elizabeth, M.Ed.
Communication influences all factors of life. Whether working in the business community, strengthening personal relationships, or simply seeking to increase comfort in reaching out to others as a whole, effective communication is the bridge from potentially hazardous misunderstandings to personal and professional success. Verbal and non-verbal communication shapes our interactions with others in interpersonal relationships as well as our financial and personal success, and our physical and psychological well-being. Understanding the different aspects of verbal and non-verbal communication, and the important roles they play in our interactions with others, is the first step to enhancing positive communication and nurturing relationships.
MTM6: Dynamic Reading
Materials:
  • Active Skills for Reading: Intro by Neil J. Anderson
  • Read and Think! A Reading Strategies Course by Ken Beatty
  • Published by Longman Asia ELT
  • Academic Power Reading Book 1
  • Advanced Reading Power by Beatrice S. Mikulecky & Linda Jeffries
  • Advanced Reading Expert 1 by Ferraro & Henry John Amen IV
Reading is an active dialogue between the author and the reader and is the basic tool for leaning in all subjects. It is a skill that helps man to discover the answers to questions about existence. Moreover, it takes man into the world of thought and imagination, an adventure which enables him to acquire a clearer, deeper understanding of reality. The course is designed to expand vocabulary, strengthen study habits, accelerate speed and comprehension, foster literary appreciation, and build higher level skills in critical-creative thinking. Furthermore, the student learns about why reading matters, typical tasks found in English language reading tests, general reading tips and strategies for better comprehension thus, becoming a stronger reader.

Large group class

Active Speaking
Materials:
  • Say It Better in English Useful Phrases for Work & Everyday Life
  • Authentic material, brought in by the teacher
  • New Cutting Edge
Active Communication is, at its heart, a speaking class. Our teachers introduce various “target languages” for students to learn, as well as the appropriate context and situations where these expressions can be used. Practical language is the main focus of these expressions, which equip our students with the ability to use English functionally. We study the language of everyday function, from setting up a bank account, applying for a visa and even going to the grocery store.
More advanced students will focus on higher language applications, such as job interviews, book reviews and narratives.
We give our students plenty of opportunity to practice their newly-learned skills through role plays or controlled class activities. The teacher is the facilitator, merely involved in correcting mistakes and guiding students the right way.

Small group class

Presentation
Materials:
  • Learner Outcomes
  • TED talks
Language is social in nature. We use it to communicate our ideas with other people, as well as give information to others. Presentation builds on these two concepts as it teaches students how to speak in front of an audience. We teach students how to develop a short speech based on a topic and how to address their audience with the most impact possible.

To give students a good model to follow, we show students our curation ofTED talks, which are looked up to as a high standard of giving a speech or presentation.

We also help students build self-confidence in this class, which is a great way to help students overcome their apprehensions about learning a new language. Students must present at least three times a week, with the teacher and classmates giving a peer critique to bring out the most out of each speaker.

Man to Man classes

MTM 1: Reading
Materials:
  • North Star Reading & Writing Series Fourth Edition
Reading is an essential skill for language learners. When reading skills improve, listening, speaking and writing skills improve, too. The constant repetition of words and patterns in reading helps the student learn and remember vocabulary and grammar structures.
The course aims to prepare students for academic success. Current and thoughtprovoking topics presented in a variety of genres promote intellectual stimulation. The authentic content engages students, links them to language use outside of the classroom, and encourages personal expression and critical thinking.
MTM 2: Writing
Materials:
  • A Conversation Book 1 English in Everyday Life by Tina K. Carver & Sandra F.Riggs
  • Top Notch Copy & Go 1 by Joan Saslow & Allen Ascher
  • Conversation Strategies by David Kehe & Peggy D. Kehe
  • Top Notch Copy & Go 2 by Joan Saslow & Allen Ascher
  • Compelling Conversations & Quotations on Timeless Topics
  • Written, compiled & edited by Eric H. Roth & Toni Aberson
Writing is a complex process that requires a different range of skills from reading. As well as the skill of visual recognition so important in reading, it requires recall and reproduction. Students may find it takes longer to see progress in writing than in reading. Most people go through a number of distinct stages before completing a piece of writing. It is useful for students to understand this so that they can tackle the task one step at a time.
The course aims to enable students to draw connections to prior learning experiences, encourage creativity, emphasize critical thinking, and teach them to observe careful choice of words.
MTM3: Listening
Materials:
  • North Star Listening & Speaking Series Fourth Edition
The course is designed to stimulate students intellectually by listening to thoughtprovoking listening selections from a variety of authentic genres. Step-by-step instructions and practice guide students to exercise critical thinking and to dig deeper by asking questions that move beyond the literal meaning of the text. Likewise, pronunciation and speaking skill sections of the book expose students to the sounds and patterns of English as well as to functional language that prepares them to express ideas on a higher level.
MTM4: Speaking
Materials:
  • North Star Listening & Speaking Series Fourth Edition
Communication is a two-way process – understanding people when they speak and conveying what you want to say so that other people can understand you. To understand others and to effectively convey your message, knowledge, awareness, sensitivity and control are needed to avoid misunderstanding.
The course emphasizes targeted productive vocabulary in each unit, reviewed, expanded upon, and used creatively in the speaking task. Likewise, grammar structures useful for a speaking task are presented and practiced. A final speaking task gives the student the opportunity to exchange ideas and express opinions in sustained speaking contexts using vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and listening skills learned.

Small group class

Integrated Grammar
Materials:
  • "Grammar in Use" 1 to 3 (William R. Smalzer -­­ Cambridge)
Grammar is the building block upon which the other language skills are built on. We understand that our students need a strong foundation in grammar to be able to take on the other language skills, so our course makes sure that students firmly grasp concepts through exercises and discussion. The progressive nature of our course materials mean that students slowly build up their understanding of English grammar, while at the same time reinforcing previous lessons as they add on to what was previously taught.
Presentation
Materials:
  • Learner Outcomes
  • TED talks
Language is social in nature. We use it to communicate our ideas with other people, as well as give information to others. Presentation builds on these two concepts as it teaches students how to speak in front of an audience.

Listening (CNN)
Materials:
  • "Authentic Listening Complete 1" to "Authentic Listening Complete 3" (level A1 to B1)
  • CNN (YBM) (level B2 to C1)
This large group class teaches students the various listening skills, such as listening for information and listening for details. We also place importance on teaching students listening in conjunction with other language skills in order for them to gain more information and improve communication with others.
The content takes the form of recorded speeches and conversation and short news stories. More practical applications like phone messages and store announcements are also used.
Intermediate students take the CNN class, which improves their listening comprehension through exposure to worldwide video news and a short debate on the issue tackled. Our CNN content is updated every month.
I Blog (EV Newspaper)
Materials:
  • National Newspapers
  • Online Local & International News
  • Painless Writing
Writing should always arise from the student’s needs and interests. The goal of the study is to take the student from the mechanics of basic sentence writing to the ability to create content that changes frequently and engages the reader such as news, blog, twitter, facebook, etc . Content can include animations, video or audio.
By seeing their own words in print, students can develop a sense of mastery and ownership of the resulting piece

  • North Star Reading & Writing Series Fourth Edition
Reading is an essential skill for language learners. When reading skills improve, listening, speaking and writing skills improve, too. The constant repetition of words and patterns in reading helps the student learn and remember vocabulary and grammar structures.

The course aims to prepare students for academic success. Current and thoughtprovoking topics presented in a variety of genres promote intellectual stimulation. The authentic content engages students, links them to language use outside of the classroom, and encourages personal expression and critical thinking.
MTM 2: Writing
Materials:
  • North Star Reading & Writing Series Fourth Edition
Writing is a complex process that requires a different range of skills from reading. As well as the skill of visual recognition, so important in reading, it requires recall and reproduction. Students may find it takes longer to see progress in writing than in reading. Most people go through a number of distinct stages before completing a piece of writing. It is useful for students to understand this so that they can tackle the task one step at a time.

The course aims to enable students to draw connections to prior learning experiences, encourage creativity, emphasize critical thinking, and teach them to observe careful choice of words.
MTM3: Listening
Materials:
  • North Star Listening & Speaking Series Fourth Edition
The course is designed to stimulate students intellectually by listening to thoughtprovoking listening selections from a variety of authentic genres. Step-by-step instructions and practice guide students to exercise critical thinking and to dig deeper by asking questions that move beyond the literal meaning of the text. Likewise, pronunciation and speaking skill sections of the book expose students to the sounds and patterns of English as well as to functional language that prepares them to express ideas on a higher level.
MTM4: Speaking
Materials:
  • North Star Listening & Speaking Series Fourth Edition
Communication is a two-way process – understanding people when they speak and conveying what you want to say so that other people can understand you. To understand others and to effectively convey your message, knowledge, awareness, sensitivity and control are needed to avoid misunderstanding.

The course emphasizes targeted productive vocabulary in each unit, reviewed, expanded upon, and used creatively in the speaking task. Likewise, grammar structures useful for a speaking task are presented and practiced. A final speaking task gives the student the opportunity to exchange ideas and express opinions in sustained speaking contexts using vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and listening skills learned.
MTM4: Conversational English
Materials:
  • A Conversation Book 1 English in Everyday Life by Tina K. Carver & Sandra F. Riggs
  • Top Notch Copy & Go 1 by Joan Saslow & Allen Ascher
  • Conversation Strategies by David Kehe & Peggy D. Kehe
  • Top Notch Copy & Go 2 by Joan Saslow & Allen Ascher
  • Compelling Conversations & Quotations on Timeless Topics
  • Written, compiled & edited by Eric H. Roth & Toni Aberson
The course aims to equip students with a degree of confidence in their own communication skills. This involves the many facets to developing speaking skills that go along with linguistic and sociolinguistic skills (grammar, vocabulary and usage.) Stimulating lively lessons that engage the student are a vital channel to improving fluency and expressiveness. At the same time, the activities are designed to be nonthreatening that will enable the student to develop strategic conversation skills that help the speaker/listener keep a conversation going to its natural or desired conclusion.
MTM4: The Lexicon
Materials:
  • Baron’s Essential Words for the TOEIC 3RD Edition
  • Vocabulary in Use Intermediate 2nd Edition by Stuart Redman
  • Cambridge University Press
  • English Collocations in Use by Michael McCarthy & Felicity O’Dell
  • Cambridge University Press
Reading comprehension and vocabulary knowledge are strongly correlated. Limited vocabulary prevents students from comprehending a text. Copying definitions from the dictionary is not an effective way to learn vocabulary. They need to learn words in context, not stand alone lists that come and go on a daily basis.

The course focuses on words based on context and meaning, not memorization. People think with words, therefore to improve thinking there is a need to increase one’s range of English vocabulary. How to choose a word that fits the context and has a more precise meaning is what this course provides. Approaching vocabulary in a variety of ways paves for a better understanding of the relationship between words or ideas in a structure, thus, building higher level skills in critical-creative thinking.

Small group class

Presentation
Materials:
  • Learner Outcomes
  • TED talks
Language is social in nature. We use it to communicate our ideas with other people, as well as give information to others. Presentation builds on these two concepts as it teaches students how to speak in front of an audience. We teach students how to develop a short speech based on a topic and how to address their audience with the most impact possible.

To give students a good model to follow, we show students our curation of TED talks, which are looked up to as a high standard of giving a speech or presentation.

We also help students build self-confidence in this class, which is a great way to help students overcome their apprehensions about learning a new language. Students must present at least three times a week, with the teacher and classmates giving a peer critique to bring out the most out of each speaker.
Grammar
Materials:
  • "Grammar in Use" 1 to 3 (William R. Smalzer -­­ Cambridge)
Grammar is the building block upon which the other language skills are built on. We understand that our students need a strong foundation in grammar to be able to take on the other language skills, so our course makes sure that students firmly grasp concepts through exercises and discussion.

The progressive nature of our course materials mean that students slowly build up their understanding of English grammar, while at the same time reinforcing previous lessons as they add on to what was previously taught.

Large group class (Elective)

Active Speaking
Materials:
  • Say It Better in English Useful Phrases for Work & Everyday Life
  • Authentic material, brought in by the teacher
  • New Cutting Edge
Active Communication is, at its heart, a speaking class. Our teachers introduce various “target languages” for students to learn, as well as the appropriate context and situations where these expressions can be used. Practical language is the main focus of these expressions, which equip our students with the ability to use English functionally. We study the language of everyday function, from setting up a bank account, applying for a visa and even going to the grocery store.

More advanced students will focus on higher language applications, such as job interviews, book reviews and narratives.

We give our students plenty of opportunity to practice their newly-learned skills through role plays or controlled class activities. The teacher is the facilitator, merely involved in correcting mistakes and guiding students the right way.
Listening (CNN)
Materials:
  • "Authentic Listening Complete 1" to "Authentic Listening Complete 3" (level A1 to B1)
  • CNN (YBM) (level B2 to C1)
This large group class teaches students the various listening skills, such as listening for information and listening for details. We also place importance on teaching students listening in conjunction with other language skills in order for them to gain more information and improve communication with others.

The content takes the form of recorded speeches and conversation and short news stories. More practical applications like phone messages and store announcements are also used.

Intermediate students take the CNN class, which improves their listening comprehension through exposure to worldwide video news and a short debate on the issue tackled. Our CNN content is updated every month.
I Blog (EV Newspaper)
Materials:
  • National Newspapers
  • Online Local & International News
  • Painless Writing
Writing should always arise from the student’s needs and interests. The goal of the study is to take the student from the mechanics of basic sentence writing to the ability to create content that changes frequently and engages the reader such as news, blog, twitter, facebook, etc . Content can include animations, video or audio. By seeing their own words in print, students can develop a sense of mastery and ownership of the resulting piece

Introdction

The EV Academy ESL curriculum is the product of extensive research into the best techniques and strategies to teach and learn English. The backbone of our curriculum is the Communicative Language Teaching approach, which focuses on teaching students how to use language in real-life situations instead of being just a rote learning exercise. We value meaningful language at EV Academy, so we provide plenty of opportunities for oral expression with guided feedback.

The classes have been developed to address student learning needs, especially for those who will be using English in their studies and travels overseas. Our teachers have been given the best preparation available to be on hand when students learn, as well as give efficient correction and guidance.

Our materials and class activities adhere to the learner outcomes set by the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), a standardized description of language ability. The levels describe all learners, from the breakthrough A1 stage to the advanced user at level C1. We challenge our students to meet these outcomes in class, and prepare them to be able to take on the next level up.

General overview:

Our daily schedule consists of 8 Man to Man classes (1 teacher:1 student), or MTM1 to MTM8

  1. Each of our classes is 55 minutes long.
  2. A 15-minute break is given in the middle of the afternoon to allow our students to recharge and refresh their minds.
  3. All four of the major language competencies of reading, writing, listening and speaking are covered in the schedule, with emphasis on practical usage and applications.
  4. Our class schedule is consistent all throughout, from Beginner to Advanced.

Writing should always arise from the student’s needs and interests. The goal of the study is to take the student from the mechanics of basic sentence writing to writing simple paragraphs then later progress to the different genres of writing. By seeing their own words in print, students can develop a sense of mastery and ownership of the resulting piece.

The course offers students many opportunities to read examples of the forms they will eventually write. It means deconstructing a form to understand its elements and how they work together within the piece after which students construct personal versions of the world around them through the different genres of narrative and descriptive writing and to regularly celebrate student achievements by publishing collections of student writings.
