Hello everyone – happy September! What a month we had in August, with lots of hot or rainy days. Sometimes I felt like we were having a second rainy season! I'm looking forward to more sunshine this month – let's hope it shows up!
I often teach business English classes to adult professional workers, many of whom are trying to improve their TOEIC scores. I always remind them that the process of learning English (or any language) is like building a stone wall – it takes patience and it's done one stone at a time. Of course, you also have to continuously work at it. Teaching young students is really no different – they must be taught with patience and lots of practice for them to learn and retain their new language skills. Naturally, this takes time and persistence by the student, but these newly acquired skills will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Our major goal at Oregon Language School is to help our young students develop a solid foundation of reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in English. Our study program has been designed to be both effective and enjoyable in accomplishing this goal.
Have a great month, and enjoy your sports festivals if you have one! See you in class……….
