This is what he says - أود أن أسرد لكم إنطباعي العام ل( Bay of Plenty English Language School )وذلك من خلال تجربتي الشخصية بالدراسة بها. لاشك الجميع يؤمن تماما بالأهمية البالغة لتعلم اللغة الانجليزية ولقد كانت وجهتي إلى هذه المدرسة الواقعة بوسط مدنية تورنجا بنيوزلند الوجهة المفضلة لي كونها تحتضن كادر من المعلمين المتحدثين بلغتهم الانجليزية الأم، ولهم باع طويل في السلك التدريسي بالإضافة الى الطاقم الإداري وكلهم تحت مظلة واحدة من أجل إحتضان الطالب الساعي لتعلم اللغة الانجليزية بغض النظر عن جنسيته، أضف إلى ذلك النظام المرن والسهل المتبع في العملية التدريسية وما يتخلله من أنشطة وفعاليات طوال أيام الدراسة تنصب كلها في قالب واحد نحو إتقان الطالب اللغة الانجليزية قراءة وكتابة وتحدثا وإكسابه المهارات الخاصة بها. إن دراستك للغة الانجليزية تستدعي بعد العزيمة الأكيدة منك البحث عن تفاصيل دقيقة لمركز مؤهل ومناسب للدراسة به وان هذه المدرسة لاحقت إحضارا عربيا من جنسيات مختلفة ولعبت دورا هاما للعديد من أصحاب الطموح لإجادة اللغة الانجليزية وهو ما طالب لي أيضا، فطوال مدة دراستي بها شهدت تحسنا جليا في إتقاني للغة الانجليزية. وفقكم الله.أحمد Wed, 29 May 2013 00:00:00 +0000 Tertiary Education Commission - English for Migrants Please note - the Bay of Plenty English Language School is an approved provider for TEC.
