Excel! New Books from Saxoncourt Publishing

saxoncourt-publishing-excelSaxoncourt Publishing is pleased to announce that a new series of English learning materials is now ready. 

Excel is a four-level intermediate English course for secondary and elementary school students, and will replace the Mega series used in Taiwan. Each level consists of a Student’s Book, a Workbook, a comprehensive Teacher’s Manual, CDs, and Tests. Course Guides, Workbook Answer Keys and Flashcards can be downloaded from the Shane Courses Library on the Shane Server.

The Excel series has been written and designed to:
• broaden vocabulary, teaching not only key nouns, verbs and adjectives, but also functional words needed for natural, fluent communication.
• present new grammar patterns, covering all tenses and aspects at CEF B1 level, and review grammar taught in elementary English courses.
• develop the four language skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking.
• develop natural pronunciation.
• help young English learners move beyond the practice of set question and answer patterns and challenge them to freely use English in problem-solving, critical-thinking and communicative activities.

Here are the Excel release dates:

Excel 1now available!
Excel 2: March 1st 2016.
Excel 3: May 1st 2016.
Excel 4: July 1st 2016.

Summer Programs for Shane English School Taiwan (SEST) Students - 2015

sest-summer-camps-2015This summer was a great one for many students at SEST. Some had the opportunity to attend Shane Global Language Centre's summer program in Hastings, UK, while others attended the 'Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability' (LOHAS) Summer Camp in Yilan, Taiwan - north east of the country.

The 3-week summer program in the UK included excursions to many interesting places, such as Herstmonceux Gardens and Observatory, Brighton Lanes & Pier, and Bodiam Castle.

The 3-day LOHAS Summer Camp included outdoor and indoor team-building activities in English, such as "Bookmark DIY", and "Make Your Own Story Book".

Students made new friends, learned new skills, and developed global perspectives. It was a really unforgettable experience for all!

We look forward to summer 2016!
