Online English Education Platform
Our teachers also work on projects to design and deliver courses as part of the regular school curriculum. Our UK-based tutors are experts in this area. They will work closely with schools to build and deliver an English programme tailored to their students’ particular learning goals.
We work directly with any place of study, from primary schools to universities and companies.
How we can help you:
- Online IELTS and TOEFL exam preparation courses for university students.
- Online English support lessons for students in primary, secondary and high schools
- Online teacher training course to help a school’s teaching staff deliver more interactive and engaging lessons
The Programmes Team
Our programmes team work to understand, advise and support students at all times to achieve what the students want to achieve. They are the people who design the courses, hire the teachers, and are in virtual classrooms with the students every day.
They are responsible for making sure the students make the most of their studies, ensuring that they learn and thrive.
Fide School Turkey
We are currently running two programmes at FIDE:
1. Practise with Native Speakers
The Practise with Native Speakers programme we created for Fide School has never been carried out in any other primary and secondary school in Turkey. In this programme, the students learn and practise English, working with native speakers.
One of the main objectives of Fide School is to ensure their students are competent in English language skills. This is why the school decided to include the Practise with Natives project in their curriculum.
Learning and practising their English with Native teachers gives the students a huge advantage, especially in improving their listening and communication skills. For example, hearing authentic native English accents helps to improve their pronunciation and understanding of English.
We also aim to boost their confidence in their speaking skills with this programme, for example by reducing hesitation and helping them to overcome shyness.
Students meet with native English speaking teachers twice a week in 50-min sessions.
2. The Fide School Storytelling Programme
As part of Fide School’s mission to give its students the opportunity to study with Native Speakers of English, the Storytelling Programme aims to give children a dynamic, interactive and fun English learning experience through the medium of stories.
Working with our experienced and qualified teachers in small groups and 30-minute sessions, the children listen to and interact with a story or part of a story read by the teacher.
Using visual and audio tools such as sound effects, music, pictures, interactive gestures and actions, the children will have the chance to learn and practise their English in a relaxed and entertaining atmosphere.
For example, if there are characters who appear several times in a story, such as a rabbit, the children can jump every time they see the rabbit. Or if a statement/question is repeated often, such as “Where’s Peter now?”, the children can all say the statement/question together.
This means they will be better able to remember and use the English contained in each story. With the lessons led by a native speaker, they will also have an excellent pronunciation model to copy.
Homework will also be an important part of the learning process. The children might be asked, for example, to write an alternative ending to the story, write a similar story themselves, or draw a picture of a scene from the story.
A tailored education platform
Working with qualified and experienced native UK teachers, we have given Fide a premium, tailored online English education platform. Our online English classes follow the Fide school curriculum and offer a training platform that facilitates a complete and enjoyable learning experience for our students.
Our teachers support students both during and after a session. Our mentors observe lessons and are in regular contact with teachers at the school to discuss, for example, lesson plans and content, assessment, student progression and student monitoring.
So if, for instance, a student does not participate in the class, our teachers talk to the student and try to identify the problem after a session. They will then encourage and help him or her to participate more fully in future classes.
In this way, our teachers are always looking to go the extra mile with their students.
