This integrated course involves the following concepts:
- Complete integration with local English-speaking students who follow exactly the same programme
- Learning new skills to gain international certifications
- Environmental education and awareness
- Implementation of CLIL methodology (Content and Language Integrated Learning)
When native English speakers and international students have a shared objective to learn a highly-skilled activity, this opens up a channel of communication in which the possibilities for language learning are limitless. Our local and international students are completely integrated in all their activities.
The way we treat our environment is massively important.
How we live our lives impacts the Earth both on a global and local level. Environmental education is at the heart of the Share Centre and is a recurring theme throughout. Students learn how to enjoy their environment but also how to minimise their impact on it and help to protect it. The seven principals of “Leave No Trace” can be applied to how we should live our lives in general.
Unlike in a classroom setting where teachers strive to create a context with books and materials, the context is already created in the environment. This gives students an advantage in understanding meaning of language before analysing it.
All numbers and ratios of local native speakers to international students are carefully considered to ensure learners maximise their use of English. The full day’s language is reviewed in a two-hour classroom session at the end of each day’s activities.
