English in Action

Back in the early 1990s, the Headmaster and the English department of one school in Austria organised an English project week in their own school. It would be a whole week of English with the teaching provided by a group of native-speaking teachers from the UK. Teachers and parents alike were amazed how one week of English transformed their students’ confidence and fluency. It had turned their students from learners into users of the language. The overwhelming success of this project started what has become English in Action.

There’s the native-speaking language assistant, who is great, but who only gets to see each group for one session a week. You know in your heart of hearts that what the learners really need is a chance to immerse themselves in an English speaking environment.
