Project Description

“Time is flying by!”, “Oh no! The exams are coming up soon!” – such exclamations can often be heard in the classrooms of those in their final year of high school.

To optimally prepare for the English exam, students at a local high school (Mittelschule Peiting) received a very special kind of training. For one whole week Jeremy Taylor, an English native speaker, lecturer and author, spent time at the school to provide three hours of teaching a day to those about to take their exams. What made these lessons unique was that the students were only allowed to communicate with the lecturer in English. To encourage them to speak, Jeremy Taylor provided them with a number of different and challenging exercises. Speaking English was thus “absolutely necessary, completely normal and really cool.

English as a means of communication is also becoming increasingly important in professional life. The students thus not only practiced for the upcoming exams, but also gained more confidence for their later tasks in companies or for their further educational training. The high school expressed their gratitude to the Frank Hirschvogel Foundation, Hörbiger and the school booster club for the generous financial support provided to fund this opportunity.

At the end of the week, all the students agreed that the English intensive training allowed them to apply their English knowledge and provided them with the necessary confidence for the exam.
