Phenomenon based learning

We base our classes on real-life use of the English language through a technique called phenomenon-based learning (PBL). This multidisciplinary approach forges connections across subjects and aligns different disciplines with meaning and authenticity.  We apply English study to a variety of ‘phenomena,’ or holistic topics such as life skills, integration, football, music, and personal development. This gives students an opportunity to debate the topic, problem-solve, collaborate, think creatively, and take action. The OECD have stated that the introduction of PBL in the Finnish educational system has proved to be an outstanding educational reform on a national level.
