Music to Our Ears

We love hearing back from past students!  We recently received a nice email from one of our friends to let us know the interesting ways he’s putting the methods he's learned into practice.

Steven James teaches English and Indonesian, as well as music. He attended our TESOL course in August 2010. Just a few weeks ago he was featured on ABC7 News because of the unique way he uses music to teach young children with special needs. Working as a teaching aide, Steven told us that he uses the methods he learned on our TESOL course to develop a specialised program of helping children open up. These children who struggle with various communication barriers are learning how to express themselves through song.

Due to the great work he is doing, Steven was nominated for the ABC7’s Pay It Forward special. You can watch a Youtube clip of it here. Keep up the good work Steven!
