DROP DIT DANGLISH FOR GYMNASIUMS
Real-life English for young people
Today's teenagers grow up with English via YouTube and online gaming.
But they may not know the nuances of more formal English, such as how to speak to a potential boss or government official, or which "bandeord" are OK and which are really offensive.
And they may not be familiar with the many nuances of contemporary English necessary to be "woke" or politically correct when socializing with their peers in native English speaking countries.
This 90-minute workshop will give your pupils extra confidence speaking real-life English.
“Ved Sprogfestivalet på Herning Gymnasium udfoldede den dansk-amerikanske kommunkikationskonsulent og forfatter Kay Xander Mellish fængende med små indlagte challenges/udfordringer til eleverne, hvor danskere er udfordret i kommunikation på engelsk. Kay interagerede oprigtigt og interesseret med eleverne, som også responderede meget positivt på de indlagte challenges. Eleverne har efterfølgende evalueret oplægget fra Kay meget positivt. I vores perspektiv leverer Kay en fantastik sprogindsprøjtning til vores sprogbegejstrede elever i gymnasiet. Eleverne fandt oplægget yderest brugbart og relevant.”

While corporate English may seem more modern and contemporary, it can make older workers feel excluded and widen the difference between top management and ground staff.
