Memrise


Memrise is an online learning tool with courses created by its community. Its courses are mainly used to teach languages. 

At Kehtna School the English teacher has created groups for forms 3 -9 and is in the process of adding more courses which enable students to practice textbook vocabulary but also more challenging tasks for advanced students.

_____________________________

Inglise keele õpetaja on koostamas 4.-9. klassile iga peatüki osas ülesanded, mis võimaldavad harjutada sõnavara õpiku teemadel ja tasemel. Iga teema juures on ka raskema astmega ülesanded kiiremini edasijõudvatele õpilastele. 3. klassis on põhirõhk õigesti hääldama õppimisel ja seepärast kasutame tunnis Memrise asemel teisi keskkondi, kuid kodus kasutamiseks on ka neile sobivaid ülesandeid.

Soovitav on teha end Memrise kasutajaks juba kodus.  (Facebook'i kontoga mitte sisse logida, et vältida olukorda, kus kooli arvutiklassis jätab õpilane ennast Facebook'ist välja logimata)

English Club: A Court Case

Judges, defendants, defenders, witnesses, police officers...these were the roles we took in today's English Club. We had to think of crimes, ask lots of questions and use our common sense to understand who was telling the truth and who was guilty.

Thank you Adele, Eneli, Karolina, Sten Oskar and Dominik for attending!

Time to be Polite

Last year students Diana Jääger and Kertu Puur filmed a video which should remind us simple, but important things about our everyday behaviour.

English Club: Debating

This school-year we concentrate on debating. 

Today every student introduced himself. After that we talked about our rules. We agreed:

* to speak in English,
* to be friendly and supportive
* not to correct each other's mistakes - the aim is to make yourself understood



~ What is a debate? We defined it as a method for defining which statement is wrong and which is right.

~ Why and where do we need to have debating skills in everyday life?  Students mentioned different aspects: talking to shopkeepers, talking to your parents to make them buy something for you, to convince your friend that you are right, to decide which product is better, but also to learn how to disagree without getting upset or hurt.

~ Which occupations require having good debating skills? Students mentioned a lawyer, shopkeepers, teachers, doctors, politicians.

Next we learned to make a difference between facts and opinions. All the students gave such accurate examples.

In our next meet-up we are going to try out cross-examination method. For that student gave ideas what topics we could use: video games are good for you, football is the best,  drawing is good for your brain, reading books is the best activity, swimming is is the best sport.

Thank you Eneli, Adele, Karolina, Sander, Rasmus, Markus, Dominic and Oskar for joining the English Club.
