From the choice of attractive books to classroom design and set-up, nothing has been left to chance in the Bookflix Club. This is a safe and socially engaging environment where readers simply enjoy reading, analyse what they have read by filling their “Fiches de Lecture” (Reading Sheets), recommend books to their peers and exchange thoughts and laughs about their favourite or least favourite passages. Readers’ efforts are also being rewarded through House-Points for best handwriting, drawing, summary, the number of books and pages read, and “extra mile” taken, for instance, reading a book recommended by another club member or one from a different genre. Those unable to join the Club can still tune in to eBookflix through their iPads, access numerous digitised books from St Andrews International School Bangkok Language Library, and nourish their reading for pleasure.
Following the success of the French Bookflix Club and recognising the importance of building reciprocal and interactive reading experiences for students, Ms Sohee, from Korean First Language and Ms Christine, from German First Language, have also decided to champion the Bookflix approach in their classrooms, particularly through digitised books.
