Our Free Range #English app (with a useful little #languageacquisition  tool in the #voicerecorder) is now live on #GooglePlay. Let me know if you find it and tell me what you think you should do with it? It works with our English Out There social learning content :-)

Hello everyone! This is Jason. We are opening the summer school to other people this year and have given it a different name, Free Range English and a new website for people to book classes https://freerangeenglish.com.

We are trying to get listed on Trip Advisor as it might help us to get noticed. If you liked our lessons and think we should be on Trip Advisor can you help us and send them a listing request as someone who has experienced our lessons? You can do it here (under attraction/classes): https://www.tripadvisor.com/UserReview-e__2F__

Thanks and have great summers! :-)
An English speaking course that actually works

Some useful info about teaching English using English Out There social learning materials (and some very positive and kind words too!).
 
Great post Emma! Thanks for using our stuff and showing others how to work with out effectively whilst incorporating other content.

English and tests of English are linked to immigration too! That's big business. So, there's higher education (degrees), there's employment, and there's immigration...all in some form or other pegged to just two or three examination boards run by the establishment.

Hi dear Jason. I hope you are fine. If you remember I talked about "COOPERATION" last year. I left Iran 2 months ago, and I'm teaching in Turkey now. I have some important ideas on English Teaching Business which I prefer to implement them in an English spoken country rather than NON-English spoken ones. And you are the first person to whom I'm offering this cooperation. I look forward to hearing from you.

A couple surprising conclusions in here. One negative that I'd especially like to know what +Sugata Mitra​ thinks (exploratory learning)? What do you think too +Gary Spracklen​?
Lavish praise for students is among seven popular teaching practices not supported by evidence, according to a new Sutton Trust report which reviews over 200 pieces of research on how to develop great teachers. What Makes Great Teaching, by Professor Rob Coe and colleagues at Durham University, ...

I think being 'inside the system' is more about being ideologically aligned with the status quo. If you are not aligned you are outside. We all engage with various parts of the system and most times we conform (I'm not posting this from prison!), and I take +Matt Bury​'s point about rapid change after a long period of resistance (Berlin Wall?), but I'm not convinced that educators and parents have got there yet in sufficient numbers for a seismic shift in the next year (...before the election would be nice).

Thanks Liz. Yes, this was a long time ago (2006) but we still work the same way and get the same results with most learners. This was a face-to-face course on the streets of London. We started creating our unique learning materials that are on our website about that time and found that we could get the same results (if not better!) using Skype.

Hi Everyone...please can you sign up and share this with your online mates...if we get this big enough it will be amazing because it will give us a lot of clout locally.

We can't find anywhere that this has been done before...so you could well be pioneers in the changing face of community mobilisation!

Join the list here: http://weyforward.net/agentofchange.php
And wait for the registration form to be mailed out.

This could be really cool and I am very excited by its potential.

Thanks
Jason
