Class Experience

This class sets a positive association with speaking and reading in English. After 6-weeks of attendance, learners will 1) be comfortable using the words, phrases, and concepts they have learned in class and 2) be in the habit of reading daily with a grownup.
Ms. Christina began her career as an English teacher in Taiwan. 
She worked for seven years in the children's department of a large public library with a focus on Early Literacy and multilingual programming.
Ms. Christina has a Bachelor of Arts degree in INTERNATIONAL POLITICS and GERMAN and a Master of Arts degree in INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS with a language focus on MANDARIN CHINESE.
The homework is to read one book together with a grownup, then read the book to a pet or a stuffed animal. Bonus for uploading a photo to the classroom message board.

During my early literacy training at the public library, I learned an incredible fact:
If a grownup reads to a child every day for just 20 minutes — basically one book a day — the child will hear 1.8 million words in one year. 

Therefore, Ms. Christina wants each learner to read together with a grown-up every day, a book of their choice in any language — it can even be the same book every day! Then read that book to a pet or stuffed animal so the child can practice without pressure, and even pretend to be the teacher. How fun!

Not only will this daily reading habit expose the learner to an incredible number of words, it will instill in them a lifelong love of reading. With reading being the cornerstone of all subsequent learning, the daily reading habit is the simplest, least expensive way to set your child up for a lifetime of success and joy.

Learners should bring a shaker (rattle, shaky egg, maraca, or canister with dried rice, beans, or beads inside) and a book they love—any book in any language. Bonus: Bring a calendar they can write on when we check off today's date.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Please be available to "unmute" your learner for their turn to speak, if they cannot "unmute" themselves. Bonus: Model good classroom behavior from just off-camera. If your child sees you moving and singing along, they will be more willing to too.
