Know What to Do This Summer!


BRITISH COUNCILs line-up of summer enrichment workshops.

Parents who would like their kids to enhance their reading comprehension skills can enroll their children on the two-part Reading Clinic on May 10-21 at the British Councils Knowledge of Learning Centre. Ms. Bing Balayon, a specialist in teaching English as a Second Language, who holds a certificate in teacher training from the University of Cambridge, will conduct the reading clinic, which is open to young people aged 7-16. A syllabus encompassing graphic organization, visualization, imaging, phonological awareness, reading comprehension, and site visits to libraries and museums will be used across the 30-hour programme.

Creative Factory in turn, is designed as a Music Camp to be held out of town from April 24-May 1. Sean Gregory, who chairs the department of professional development and Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, will facilitate the workshop which will be anchored on "performance, creativity, and communication.

The course modules seek to help produce an informed, open, flexible, self-motivated musician who is able to perform in a variety of contexts involving repertoire, improvisation and collaboration creative processes. The experience will also contribute to the students confidence in creating and arranging music. Sessions will enable participants with a range of ages and abilities, different musical interests and experiences to work together. Specialists in traditional acoustic instruments, music technology, jazz/pop rhythm sections, DJs and vocalists are urged to join. The group will work towards a final concert which includes newly composed music created through group collaborations as well as traditional repertoire.

As a service to prospective visitors or contract workers taking up employment in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the British Council will also offer a series of courses designed to teach students more about Literature, Language and Culture in the UK.

Modular units to be taught will contain texts by contemporary British writers, a classic piece of literature in English, a feature on life in contemporary UK as well as language exercises. The materials aim to use literature to develop all language skills and raise students intercultural awareness, using contemporary Britain as a model.

The British Council is located at the 10th floor, Taipan Place, Emerald Avenue, Ortigas Centre, Pasig City.
