HELLO ENGLISH! is an Austrian non-for-profit education initiative which aims to support English teaching in Austrian schools by making English Native Speaking teachers accessible to all schools in Austria. HELLO ENGLISH! brings a holistic approach to English learning into the classroom environment, enabling cultural exchange. In this environment, language comes alive and can be learned in a fun way. Learning that English is fun while at the same time also including teaching methodologies such as CLIL, task based learning and communicative language teaching creates a true holistic approach to English language teaching.
The content and language integrated learning (CLIL) offered by HELLO ENGLISH! is not only foreign language teaching, but foreign-language instruction in subjects such as history, physical education, geography, biology and technology.
The young and enthusiastic English teachers from HELLO ENGLISH! are motivated towards providing a fun, memorable and profitable learning experience for their students.They enable students to develop independent learning processes that are geared to their individual interests. Since a practical application is an irreplaceable factor when learning a foreign language, the focus is mainly on speaking and listening.
The HELLO ENGLISH! workshops consist of role plays, songs, self-made plays and sketches, as well as sports from English-speaking countries. By working in small teams we strengthen the cohesion and celebrate success stories together. Problem-based learning and action-oriented teaching promote the acquisition of social skills as well as self-organization and self-responsibility.
We stand for fairness and equality in education and therefore offers free English projects. Based on strict ethical standards, the initiative has set itself the goal of providing language support for all, without exception, and thus reaching every school in Austria with a Free English project.
HELLO ENGLISH! currently works with more than 300 partner schools. In order to promote English as a language of instruction in a sustainable and interdisciplinary way, HELLO ENGLISH! also offers, Fortbildungen in partnership with the KPH Krems/Wien to further strengthen the quality of English lessons in Austrian schools.
We work with the highest international standards of Trinity College London and are particularly geared to the Austrian curriculum and the requirements for project work and child-friendly education to Austrian schools in order to provide them with optimal support.
