IMMERSIVE  ENGLISH LEARNING

Fancy improving your English? Immersive learning has been proven to be the best way to do so quickly and easily, as well as being a whole lot of fun!

Immersive learning places you in an interactive learning environment, either physically or virtually, to replicate possible scenarios or to teach particular skills or techniques, in this case English. Things like simulations, role playing, and virtual learning environments can all be considered ways of immersive learning.

Using these techniques we are running classes twice a week throughout the year to help you boost your English skill set: giving you a better vocabulary, pronunciation, spelling, comprehension and ability to apply your new English skills both in the workplace and socially.

These early evening lessons in central Brighton will take you out of the classroom and into real life immersive settings with planned group exercises, led by our experienced TEFL teachers. They are fun, you’ll make friends and above all they work!

MODULE 1.UP AGAINST THE WALL: STREET ART AS CULTURAL EXPRESSION

Street art -or Graffiti Art- is the hieroglyphics of modern culture.

Curious about what the “real” Brighton is all about, the one you won’t find it in a tourist guide or travel website? You have to hit the streets to get the real story.  Cultural Ambassador Delia will guide you through the back alleyways and secret alcoves of Brighton to view the city’s prolific and highly skilled mosaic of guerrilla-style street art.

These postmodern hieroglyphs are an artistic rendition of the esoteric thoughts simmering beneath the surface of this diverse, progressive and vibrant seaside Mecca for free-thinkers, keen seekers, artists, activists and everyday people, all kindred spirits in search of meaning, purpose, and a proper pint. The writing is on the wall. You just have to look up…

Aim: To explore the culture and “hear” the collective voice of one of the UK’s most socially progressive and vibrantly creative cities, Brighton.

Good for: Cultural exploration and the discussion of aspects of post modern art. Engagement in continual use of advanced English language use, comprehension, and communication skills.

Cost: one module (two sessions) £24.99

MODULE 2. IT’S ONLY BUSINESS: HOW TO SELL YOUR SOUL IN THE POST-POST MODERN WORLD

When you shop, do you prefer the local “Mom and Pop” shop, the visceral experience of the glimmering super store or shopping mall, or shopping online from the comfort of your own home? Each experience has their pros and cons, and vast differences in the way they seduce the customer into spending their hard earned cash.  In this module, we will take a walking tour of Brighton’s vibrant and varied shopping districts to compare and discuss product merchandising and sales techniques.

Objective: In small groups, you must choose a product to market and sell. Your group should identify your target market, come up with a marketing campaign and a sales strategy (online vs. storefront vs. mall), then present your marketing and sales plan to the class.

Aim: To use the English language whilst exploring the factors that contributes to successful marketing and healthy sales at a UK retail business.

Good for: Budding entrepreneurs, the self-employed, and those who are eager to expand their English language ability whilst utilizing their problem solving skills.
