Speak Up Project is based on the most recent studies on foreign language acquisition
In order to simulate the communicative interaction among students, Feevale School created the Speak Up project, which involves all levels of education in the Institution, from Kindergarten to High School. The proposal aimed to promote the development of linguistic competence and provide a teaching concept closer to the reality of students and current topics. Among the activities developed in this work is the God Save the Queen project, aimed at students from the 2nd cycle of elementary school, which promoted a simulation of a meeting with Queen Elizabeth II. In this dynamic, the students created in their imagination an afternoon tea in the United Kingdom, becoming familiar with English politics, geography, history and music.
Conducted by the English language teachers at the Institution, Ana Carolina Brandini Gonçalves, Cintia de Moura Pinto, Maristela Leila Bauer Zimmermann and Mélany Blume Matté, the God Save the Queen project enabled students to learn about different aspects of English language and culture. There were four months of studies and the dynamics took place in a hybrid format, with face-to-face meetings and online tasks with contact through audios, videos, photos and tutorials. The classes were also interdisciplinary with the areas of Arts, History and Geography.
