BVIS organises "Speak English Week"

This week in Secondary we have been celebrating ‘Speak English Week’.

  • Speak English Week Golden Ticket holders
  • Taboo game
  • Pictionary game
  • Child
  • Articulate game

Students have spent the week consistently practising their English speaking skills. There has been a whole school “Golden Ticket” competition, whereby students could have the chance to experience a traditional English cream tea by impressing teachers with their English speaking efforts. We have been running break time and lunch time activities to help students practise their English skills and there was an excellent turnout with over 70% of Secondary students coming to participate!

Why have we organised such a week at BVIS?  We believe that it is vital to highlight the importance of speaking English in our school and beyond. ‘Speak English Week’ was designed to encourage students to reflect on how they can further develop their level of spoken English. Unlike listening, reading and writing, speaking is a skill that is difficult to practise on your own – it is a skill that you need to develop along with someone else. Therefore it is vital that each of our students make the most of every opportunity to speak and practise their English. At the end of each school day our students should be asking themselves: “How much English did I speak today?  Could I have had that extra conversation?”

The ultimate goal of attaining fluency in a language requires tremendous energy and effort to achieve.  However, this week at BVIS, our students have demonstrated they have the determination, perseverance and drive to reach that goal.

Well done to everyone!  We, as teachers, are extremely proud of all your efforts.
