In order to encourage the Maple Leaf students to speak more English and create English atmosphere, the campuses of Maple Leaf Educational Groups make every Wednesday the "English Wednesday ". With the impassioned music, the English Wednesday activity was held at 5pm on September 27th, 2017 .
本次英语日的主题是动物，负责承办英语日的普通高中的同学们，分为八组，每4个学生为一组，每组为不同的动物馆。例如 长颈鹿、 袋鼠、 鲸、 海豚、 熊猫、 企鹅、 蜘蛛、 猴子。
The theme of English Wednesday was animals. The senior high school students who were responsible for hosting the English Wednesday were divided into eight groups. Four students in a group and they chose different animals, such as giraffe, kangaroo, whale, dolphin, panda, penguin, spider, monkey.
Students discussed with each other and worked together. They made posters, prepared some related questions and games. Although time is limited to prepare, they were really enthusiastic about it. Students searched some information from website by themselves, or sought the help from teachers, they were all full of confidence, which shows their love for English and animals fully.
What made us surprised is students’ teamwork capacity and their active attitude to participate. The leaders of each group not only did well in their part, but also assigned the work of others. Every team member also actively cooperated with each other, tried their best to do their work well, which made preparations for the activity go smoothly.
During the activity, all students took an active part in it. They played games, answered the questions and played the roles of different kinds of animals, which showed they love these animals. At that time , students spoke English all the time, and also came up with a slogan, “no English, no service”. Furthermore, when the students who came to take part in our games were unable to communicate in English well, our students who were in charge of encouraged them to say a lot. As a consequence, this activity not only aroused students’ interests in English but also improved their ability to express themselves in English, which truly gave the chance to the students to integrate English into life.
After participating the games and answering the questions, the students got some prizes.You can see the happy smiles on their faces and hear their compliment of praise. That’s not only a positive affirmation of their English learning ability, also an encouragement of their learning English in the future.
This activity was a great success. Students not only benefited from this activity a lot, they also widened their vocabulary and acquired much knowledge about animals in English. After the 30-minute activity, students were still lost in the activity. Let’s look forward to the next English Wednesday together!
