“Before, many students dared not raise their voices because they were afraid of mistakes, causing silent class atmosphere. We have changed teaching approaches to encourage students to listen, speak out and do many exercises. At the beginning, the teachers were not too strict about pronunciation, spelling and grammatical mistakes to motivate the students to show their ability and know to correct their mistakes”, said teacher Nguyen Van Tuat.
When training excellent students, the teachers pay attention to guiding them to self- study, read orientated documents in various topics and do many types of exercises to memorize knowledge. In line with the lessons at school, the school established an English club and regularly organizes extra-curricular activities for the students to enrich their knowledge and practice presentation skills in English.
According to an evaluation by the district’s Division of Education and Training, the English teaching quality of Thang township Junior High School in recent 5 years has gained many achievements. Particularly, the school bagged 83 district-level prizes and 5 provincial-level prizes at the Excellent Student Contests in English in the academic year 2019-2020 helping the school to take the lead of the junior high schools in the district and rank second in the province, preceded by Le Quy Don Junior High School in Bac Giang city.
In late 2020, 3 students of the school represented the province to take part in the final round of the “Reaching the world” contest organized by the Central Council of the Ho Chi Minh Young Pioneer Organisation.
