Hybrid English learning with IH Manchester offers confidence & flexibility for students and agents.
The past 8 months have turned our world upside-down and presented us with difficulties we could not have conceived of. But what about our students‘ needs? In this new environment of social distancing and uncertainty is it still possible to deliver the interactive, life enhancing experience of learning and socialising our students want via hybrid English lessons? But what role do technology and online tools play in this?
At International House we have had to answer these questions, and many others, as we explored how we could deliver the same communicative, human and engaging experience we know our students value. We have learnt that we can teach whatever the circumstances – online English, hybrid English, face to face English – providing the flexibility our students need.
In this session, we’ll give an insight into our ‘whole school’ approach and hear from our staff just how hybrid classes have assured stability and maintained a sense of community. Led by Lucy Horsefield, this presentation is a collaboration between the teams from International House World Organisation and IH Manchester. Thanks also to our valued agent partner, Brian Allen from Ingles Ya, for sharing his experiences.
