During the last lesson of Term Three, the Evangelismos Greek Language School put into practice some of the ideas from the recent Professional Learning session offered by the West Australian Modern Greek Language Teachers’ Association Inc. (WAMGLTA). The school ran a ‘Souvlaki-ordering Class’.
The first part of the language lesson involved all classes learning ‘meaningful chunks of text’ relating to the ordering of souvlaki. This was followed by the very generous offer of Kyrios Vasilis to prepare and cook souvlaki for the children. As such, all the children were treated to a real live ‘Souvlaki Shop’ where they could put into practice what they had learned!
It was overheard that this was one of our best lessons! Thank you, Kyrie Vasili and Kyria Nektaria for your help on the day, and WAMGLTA for the inspiration!
