Popularity

Nowadays, popularity is a well-known issue in schools. Teens try to be popular without thinking of the benefits and the drawbacks that it will have on themselves.

On the one hand, being popular has some advantages. Firstly, you feel more positive as a person. For example, when a teen is popular they listen to good comments about them so they feel happier. Secondly, you have bigger friendship circles. For instance, all the teens know you and as a result, everyone wants to be your friend. Furthermore, you develop your confidence and you make yourselves feel better.

From a crooked angle, popularity also has some disadvantages. First of all, you lose the meaning of close friendships. For instance, for the one point, all the teens know you but you do not have some actual friends to stand by you in a difficult moment. Also, with the idea you want to be like others, you may do things just to show you are cool with the result you might start some bad habits like smoking or drugs.

To conclude, having a big name in school is not necessarily negative. Popularity has benefits and drawbacks and you should learn when is the time to stop trying to be popular before you do something bad to yourselves.

ONLINE CLASSES

Covid-19 changed our school system. We do online school lessons because we have to stay safe, stay at home. I have so much fun and I like doing them at home in my room.
All of as have access to the internet for many different things: for downloading music, pictures, wallpapers and doing projects but now we use it to learn more and more during this nightmare.
But I want to go back to my classroom because I missed all of my friends and my teacher!!

Online lessons

I like online lessons because I stay at home and I like the iPad. We have little problems but it is so funny. I like the games we play. We find things in the kitchen, in the wardrobe, in the drawers. I want to continue the online lessons.

Online lessons

I like having English lessons at school because I see my friends and we play a lot of games in class. With online lessons, we don’t play a lot of games and we don’t borrow books from the English school library. When we use a computer for a long time I have a headache and my eyes become red. In this period I understand that we need to have online lessons because we must protect ourselves. I want my English school to open to go and see my friends, my teacher and Mr Mike again. I can’t wait to play board games in class. I am happy because my English school will open on Monday.

Online English Lessons

A few days ago because of Covid-19, all shops, schools, tutoring centres were closed. In the beginning, I was happy because I thought a break from everyday life would be good for me. Also starting online courses we would not miss the precious time of our learning. That way we would do lessons and we will be relaxed at home. But as time went by my eyes got sore. I could no longer afford online lessons, they were too tedious for me because from morning (with school) until night (with the lessons and the foreign languages) I was on the computer.
My personal opinion is the face to face courses give you the chance to communicate more and interact with other people. I think that the lesson in the classroom is more creative for me because you can do more activities with your classmates. Also, I have direct contact with my teachers and classmates which is very important to me.
I prefer the lesson in the classroom but we should adapt to this situation for this period of time because we don’t have any other option.

Online lessons!

Online lessons are so cool! I love them! But sometimes, it’s not as nice as I describe it. For example, I don’t have a good Internet. Also, online lessons can harm our eyes, and they are not very good, but I prefer online lessons than going to school. Having lessons online is fun. We play games, we do our spelling, correct the exercises and have a good time. Miss Vicky is our teacher and she is very smart. I am glad we have miss Vicky as our teacher and I like Online lessons with her because she makes us laugh.

The English lesson course I prefer is in class but English lessons from the computer are good too. I like the English lesson in class because I see my friends and my teacher up close and not from the computer. I like English lesson from the computer too because it’s very unique and fan!
On Monday I come back to class and I’m very happy!!!

Online lessons

I like lessons at kedu English school because I love meeting with my friends. Also, I like playing games on dictation and I love writing on the board.
I like online lessons because I stay at home and I don’t have to go out. Also, I love chat dictation and online games we play with Miss Vicky.
I prefer online lessons because I love using the computer and I don’t have to go out when it’s raining or it’s cold.

Is gamification meaningful?

Gamification is undeniable one of the most exciting ways to learn. Especially, this period with quarantine, we used the way of gamification to learn or revise things to the children. But a question that most parents and some teachers make; is gamification meaningful?
Firstly, gamification is a way to learn easer everything needs to learn. Similarly, is the easer and most exciting way to do our revises or our homework. Likewise, in this way, people of all ages can learn new languages. Also, this way help our self-improvement. What I mean with that? Gamification helps us achieving success but hard work and study are needed.
Something essential that all people but especially children need to understand is that they play games to improve their skills not to become antisocial. Gamification turns a task, whether it’s learning into a rewarding experience and with the competitive element that makes the game exciting but there are children that they can not understand that. What we can do to reduce this? We need to explain to those people that the mean of the gamification is not always trying to win the other but to try being better or learn from the game new things or to remember things we have forgot as like revisions with a most exciting way.
In conclusion, gamification helps us in a lot of parts but we need to know what is the time to stop, take a break and start again because as technology have radical results in our life and gamification have bad results to us if we do not know how to use it right.
