Mission Statement

Welcome to  A Teachable Year!

Hi there! My name is Ana and I am thrilled to introduce you to A Teachable Year a vibrant space where we embark on a fascinating journey around the world through celebrations, special days, and holidays, all while immersing ourselves in the beauty of language learning.

My Mission

At  A Teachable Year  my mission is rooted in the belief that language education extends far beyond textbooks and grammar drills. Instead, we embrace the richness of global diversity by leveraging culturally significant events and occasions as engaging teaching opportunities.

My mission is simple: to leverage the vibrancy of global festivities, special days, and cultural events as dynamic teaching tools in ESL classrooms. From Diwali in India to the Lunar New Year in China, from the colorful Carnival in Brazil to the enchanting Hanami in Japan, we believe that every celebration is an opportunity to ignite curiosity and deepen language learning.

Advantages and Benefits

Wondering about the advantages of integrating celebrations and holidays into your language teaching curriculum? Let me  highlight a few:

Cultural Understanding: 
By delving into various festivities, students gain a deeper understanding of different cultures, traditions, and customs, fostering respect and empathy.

Contextual Learning: 
Connecting language lessons to real-world events provides context and relevance, making learning more meaningful and memorable.

Enhanced Engagement: 
Celebrations captivate students' attention and enthusiasm, creating an immersive and enjoyable learning experience that encourages active participation.

Expanded Vocabulary: 
Exploring celebrations offers an excellent opportunity to expand vocabulary related to specific themes, rituals, and cultural practices.
