nov photo challenge

What are the most beautiful, interesting, quirky sights you've seen where you live? During the month of November, we invited our teachers to participate in a photo challenge to share their favourite things about teaching in Taiwan. They were asked to share a photo and complete the prompt "The best thing about teaching in Taiwan is..." 

 

These creative ESL students were challenged to showcase their collaboration, critical thinking, and story making skills by creating impromptu skits. In small groups, they worked together to plan their skits using their own creative writing books, including the characters, setting, and problem, as well as making props to help act out their stories - all in one day!

 

Perfect fall weather and beautiful natural scenery make ideal conditions for a school outing! Our ESL teaching team at Sacred Heart Elementary participated in the school's hiking day to appreciate the outdoors and get some physical activity together with students and parents.

A unique aspect of teaching in a local school in Taiwan is participating in school events and having the opportunity to engage with students, parents, and the greater school community in different ways outside of the classroom.

FIEC Halloween 51

One of the exciting parts of teaching English abroad is being able to introduce our students to some unique elements of western culture. Halloween isn't traditionally celebrated in Taiwan (although it is becoming increaingly popular with the influence of western culture), but it's an opportunity for teachers to engage students in some fun, themed activities in ESL class. Check out the creative costumes by our ESL teachers this year!

Each year as our program expands, our teaching team grows. We are excited to have a great team of professional educators with us in Taiwan this year, including several new teachers. This has been an unusual year, with the global impact of COVID-19 creating unique travel and visa challenges for our teachers. We are grateful to all of our new teachers who willingly spent 14 days isolated in quaratine in a new country before being able to join us in person. Welcome to the Foresight family!

As high school students in our ESL program reach upper years, they're assigned more critical thinking tasks and project-based assignments. Rather than being directly presented with content, students are invited to dig deeper into global and societal issues that affect the world around them and to reflect critically on their place in it, through research, discussion, analysis, and reflection.
