"On-Screen" English Lessons
As the COVID-19 pandemic led to school closures across Turkey, English W/Tech adjusted and moved classes online. In order to continue to keep Generation Z students occupied and engaged, we decided to offer free conversational learning sessions available to all youth 13-18 years of age.
We do not want school closures to be the reason Turkish youth forget their English learning skills so we have created a safe space where students may come together to practice. Our On-Screen Sessions are 40 minute engaging, conversational classes with carefully curated topics, relatable to today's teen, to make the best use of the language as it relates to their life.
Our teachers have pedagogical and professional foundations to teach English digitally with advanced technological apps and tools, under the academic consultancy of Dr. Senem Yildiz and Dr. Mustafa Polat from Bogazici University Foreign Language Education Department.
