Interview by Anglia Intern Bas Batenburg:
Tessa (12) received a delicious PIE from the Partners in English.
From her primary school period at the Jan van Schengenschool in Heinkenszand, Tessa has been working with Anglia. At primary school, she participated in the Junior, Primary and Elementary exams! For all three exams, she has achieved the result Distinction.
At school, Tessa started learning English in group 6. When she participated in the exams she prepared herself at school. Together with the Anglia Coordinator of the Jan van Schengenschool, she prepared for the Anglia Exam every Friday for half an hour. She received special explanations for the Anglia Exams in this half-hour.
She started speaking in English very young. Tessa already spoke English during her vacation in Copenhagen and now she has conversations with her eye-specialist in English herself! During the exam, she didn't experience any difficulties.
Besides her participation in the Anglia Exams, she also participated in three Anglia Summer Schools. According to Tessa, these also helped her a lot to prepare for the exams she took after these Summer Schools. The part listening skills went very well.
In 2017, 2018 and 2019 she participated in the Anglia Summer Schools in Middelburg. Here she got to know a girl with which she is now in the lunch break together in secondary education.
Tessa told that her Group Teacher asked her to get ice cream in English. ''Then you need someone behind the ice cream truck who can speak English, but that person did not speak English.''.
She did her first participation together with a friend, based on a flyer she received with her certificate. Because she didn't know what to do during the summer vacations, they decided to participate together. All year long she had been looking forward to the Anglia Summer School, but unfortunately, she had to go to school again.
During the week they prepared a piece like a play, presentation or performance which was a lot of fun according to Tessa's mother.
Unfortunately, she could not participate in an Anglia Summer School in 2020, that is why she chose the course ''preparation secondary school''. Also together with her friend, she participated in this course. The material she was given during this course, was that she had heard about it through her participation in the different Anglia activities.
As a surprise for her active participation, the Partners In English arranged a delicious cake for her.
