The Edge of Englishbuds by Adam
What makes Englishbuds standout from other language schools? Englishbuds have three edges.
First, students are learning the said language in creative ways. Like learning while having fun. According to the article of Judy Wills (2007), “Brain research tells us that when the fun stops, learning often stops too”. Meaning, the students can retain their acquired knowledge and skills if the teachers saw their authentic smiles and laughs during the class. Just like in Englishbuds. The teachers are using creative strategies such as playing games, reading stories, having debate sessions, science classes, extensive reading sessions, and many more to make the students learn the language depending on their learning interests. Therefore, I can say that one of the most important assets of Englishbuds (for all schools as well) is having dedicated teachers at heart that will make the students treasure every lesson. Associate Professor Sylvia Chong said, “You can take a teacher out of the classroom, but you cannot take the classroom out of a teacher”.
Second, the lesson duration is shorter than the provided time by other schools. In my observation, Englishbuds is offering with a minimum of 25 minutes for one-on-one classes which is shorter than the usual offer of other language schools, about 30 minutes or more. It is a good thing that Englishbuds considered to offer the said minimum class duration to cater students who need to learn the English language in a short period of time because most of the kids, nowadays, have short attention span.
Lastly, Englishbuds has a kind and hardworking teacher-administrator, Ma’am Kayo. Having a good leader will make a learning institution, like Englishbuds, to have good breed of teachers and to produce well educated students. It is like a great chef using good quality of ingredients to make mouthwatering dishes.
If Englishbuds will continue to improve its good education systems, there is no doubt that it will grow like a tree. Although Englishbuds is still a bud of the plant, we can see already its potentials to grow. From Englishbuds to Englishtree. I think that would be a great vision statement of this learning institution.
Those are the edges of Englishbuds that we cannot or we can barely see in other language schools.
