Students hear vocabulary as they watch a video
Students learn the new words and get to say them
Students practice identifying the vocabulary words
Research clearly shows that to effectively learn target vocabulary in another language, it must be in a context that students understand and can relate to. In Joy School English, all language taught in the program is contextualized.
Additionally, the target material is leveraged by integrating it throughout the language domains (listening, speaking, etc.). Whether it's in a story, or a game, or an introduction to vocabulary, the target language is used and multiple domains are utilized which in turn is self-reinforcing.
The chart below illustrates that a Joy School English Level 1 unit consists of six lessons, and each lesson contains at least five activities (a book, a song, a game, etc). And whether it's Speaking, or Listening, or Vocabulary, or Literacy—each lesson integrates these separate domains, giving the students opportunities to experience language learning in a more authentic and holistic way.
