Verbalize Yourself! Program (15-19 yrs)
After the great success that the Verbalize Yourself! program has achieved among our adult learners (click here for more details), we have adjusted that advanced English learning communication course to tailor it for those who are just starting their path to success – high school students!
Much more than an English conversation course – Verbalize Yourself! is a language program that provides a unique opportunity to develop and enhance your analytical and debate skills in English that are most important for academic and business success, and yet often neglected by schools’ teaching even in our mother tongue. Our expertise in language training, coupled with a long standing experience in business, have helped us better understand the learning needs of young people who are about to enter or have already started their studies at home and abroad. Their main problem is the lack of adequate written communication skills. The Verbalize Yourself! Program develops those abilities which makes it much more than an English conversation course.
Celebrities as guests and trainers – Our team of native English speaking lecturers and professors will be sometimes joined by successful business people and public figures, offering their expertise and experience relating to the development of communication skills. Dynamics and excitement will not be missed on this course!
Scholarships & awards – The uniqueness of the program is also characterized by its prizes and grants. We are very pleased to announce our support to young Verbalists by way of granting scholarships (up to 100%), discounts and valuable awards.
The content, the prestige and the awards of Verbalize Yourself!
- The Program aims to improve spoken and written communication skills in English, enriching vocabulary, team working, and gaining additional knowledge about certain topics.
- Communication practice is done through: conducting discussions and debates (current subjects), public speaking exercises, role plays, quizzes and competitions as well as public figures’ lectures.
- Each class is held by a professor (usually a native speaker). At the time of debates, another teacher will join the class, so each debating team will be spearheaded by an experienced moderator.
- In addition to the professors/moderators, a famous celebrity will take part in one of the classes to pass on his/her valuable knowledge and experience, and “spark” the discussion on a particular topic. The Verbalists Language Network has gained high popularity and reputation in the region and worldwide for its unique ways of doing business. One of our ways is the active role and support of public figures in educating participants of all ages, especially young people. We invite you to visit our Speak Your Mind! here to review most interesting interviews. Some of those famous local and international names will be guests in the Verbalize Yourself! program!
- The program is delivered in cooperation with two of the world’s renowned English language schools, British KINGS and IELS language institute, both of which are exclusively represented by the Verbalists Language Network in the South East Europe region.
The KINGS EDUCATION group has schools in London, Oxford, Brighton, Bournemouth, Los Angeles, Boston and New York. KINGS is a licensed IELTS Testing Center and the leading school for conducting preparatory courses for IELTS and TOEFL exams. The accreditation and reputation of the IELS (Institute of English Language Studies) are equally impressive. IELS is one of the largest schools in Malta, the founder of the Federation of English Language Teaching Organizations (FELTOM), which is in charge of the quality assurance and control of English language teaching activities as well as of the schools themselves. The school is an authorized Cambridge Center as well.
- The student who is evaluated as the best performer, or who achieves the highest score at the end of the program, will be awarded by the Verbalists Language Network and its partners, KINGS and IELS schools, a free English language course for two weeks in England or in Malta – an award of €1,500!
- All program participants are also offered a discount of 20% off the price of any course at KINGS and IELS schools.
