School for parents is an open forum in which we expose how being involved in their child’s education can help promote learning and has been shown to lead to greater academic achievement. However, being a good parent not only includes being present and involved in their child’s learning and wanting to help promote their success and self-confidence amongst all the students in the school, but also being a good parent is being a good student, by learning new studying approaches and implementing this information in their own professional skills and human qualities. Please join us on Saturday, November 24 at 2 p.m. for our meeting to rethink the way education is done, how it is delivered, and what types of skills children will need to become thriving members of their society.

TS Eliot's seminal poem "The Waste Land" is one of the most famous works of literary modernism. Throughout the five sections of this poem ‘The Burial of the Dead’, ‘A Game of Chess’, ‘The Fire Sermon’, ‘Death by Water’ and ‘What the Thunder Said’, Eliot presents a bleak picture of the landscape of the contemporary world and its history. In this talk we discuss the Eliot himself; the poem and its ambivalence to the modern world of technology, democracy, and capitalism that was being forged around it; and the influence of Ezra Pound on the final version. We are waiting for you on Saturday, November 17 at 16-00 (in English 16+).

If we look closer at our daily conversations, we may notice that they consist of countless stories that we retell. For English language learners, this observation gives the key to tremendously improving their speaking skills. While most of the time in the course is dedicated to speaking practice itself, here are the topics of importance that we will also touch: - ideas for stories; - ways of increasing vocabulary; - the grammar used in retelling; - importance of expressing ourselves in a clear way; - active listening skills; - self-study skills. The series of meetings will be most beneficial to learners of Pre-Intermediate and higher levels of English speaking ability. These training sessions are held by an English language teacher, Caroline Nhimbo.
