Today, English is one of the most important languages worldwide. Therefore, we English teachers at the Stiftsgymnasium Admont set a high value on our teaching and strive towards planning our lessons carefully and individually to enable our students to interact with people all over the world. Learning English is definitely hard work in terms of studying vocabulary but English should also be fun and made lively by various games, creative lessons, role plays and interactions with Native Speakers.

In the following we will show different facets of our communicative and individual English lessons. Enjoy!

Fun in the classroom with Sam our native speaker


The students of the 3rd class really enjoyed meeting our new native speaker. They particularly enjoyed the "murder game". :-)

Pancakes



The students of the English4Fun group made their first pancakes and enjoyed their delicious lunch!

Halloween



As Halloween is approaching, the students of the "English 4 Fun" class decided to carve pumpkins! These traditional Jack o'lanterns (that's what they are called) are put on doorsteps and used as decorations prior to and on Halloween.

My favourite bands



The students of the 3rd form proudly present their posters about their favourite bands. 

 

Spelling Bee


 

The English groups of 1C and 1D took part in a spelling bee. Congratulations to Bastian, Lara and Alexandra for being the best spellers – you did a great job! 

My book in a Shoe Box



The 4th forms dedicated their 2nd semester to an unusual literature project. They were asked to read an English book and then present it by using and decorating a shoe box. They took different items to put inside the box and also included plot, author and characters. They proudly present their works: (they can also be seen at the students’ library at the moment)

"The Lost Smile" - Reading Portfolios! (2C class)



Reading is an essential part of learning a language and therefore, the students of the 2nd class have read their first "real" English book! They were asked to create "Reading Portfolios" in order to note down new words, plot and characters. As can be seen, they did an amazing job:

 

The Fame Game (by Lea Sulzbacher, 2C)



The title of the book is “The Fame Game”. It was written by Philip Dart in 2009/10.
The story takes place in a casting show in England. The book is about friendship and auditions.
 
The main characters are Chloe and Davy. They are both 16 years old, attractive and Davy is Chloe´s boyfriend. Davy dreams of being a famous popstar.
Firstly, Davy persuades Chloe to accompany him to a casting show. But only his girlfriend makes it to the next stages and starts a solo career. To make her life more interesting for the journalists, Chloe has to split up with Davy and she has to pretend to be a recovering anorexic. From then on “Starmaker” takes over her life and changes Chloe completely. Unluckily, Davy tells the truth about Chloe
to a reporter. And, unfortunately, Chloe´s career is ruined. Finally they make up and become good friends again. Chloe goes back to school and Davy will attend a Performing Arts College.
 
In my point of view the book was great and easy to read. I really can recommend that book. It taught me to be honest to my friends!
