During your two-week holiday, you will be offered a 40-hour English language course. English classes take place Monday to Friday with a teacher from The Asana School of English, Ireland. Teachings at Asana is learner-centered, interactive, communicative, and task-based.
The Asana school of English embraces a holistic philosophy which recognizes the importance of developing and supporting the whole person. Asana HTV places the learner at the center of his or her own learning. Asana HTV believes in active learning, the contrary of passive learning where students are spoon fed information.
Asana HTV encourages their students to be curious, think for themselves, and to discover (through experience) their own personal learning styles and to take responsibility for their own learning. There are many different learning styles (visual, auditory, kinesthetic, etc.) and multiple intelligences. Therefore, it is necessary to incorporate many of these elements into classroom activities.
The instructors will endeavor to make use of storytelling, drama, music, songs, rhymes, movement, and games as a way to stimulate the learners in a fun and effective way. By the end of the program, learners will have prepared, produced, and presented a project on their experience in India. This is a great way of putting TBL (task-based learning) into practice.
Learners must work together in pairs or groups to produce something which can then be presented to the whole group. The aim is that the learners will get to know themselves, their classmates, their international teachers, and India.
They will discover that English is more than just a subject to be studied at school, but a means of communicating with the world at large and a window opening on to cultural diversity. The aim is that learners return home with increased self-esteem regarding the language, as well as an understanding of a rich new culture.
There will be full day excursion to Haridwar and Neelkanth on Saturdays.
