Word Games to teach English

Here’s a photo which one of our volunteers took of words made using Bananagram tiles as part of an Intermediate level English class in the reception centre.  Using as many varied approaches as possible keeps the learners’ attention and helps them to learn.  Our classes are not simply about doing worksheets – having fun is very important!

Certificate of Participation

This is our new Kent Kindness Certificate of Participation, issued to boys when they leave the Reception Centre.  It will be a  positive recognition of the work they have done, and a reward to them for starting back on the path to education and development of skills.  This idea has already gone down very well with the boys!

 

Kent Kindness offers support and hope to young asylum seekers and refugees who are living in Kent. Our central project is to give them classes in life skills and basic English, but we are also involved in offering them a range of other educational, sporting and social opportunities.
