Online Language School-accessible to all people regardless their location
Explain your idea in details:
As a person who is passionate about education and languages, I was quite surprised when I couldn't find any online language school to study the French language. Obviously, I have always understood that direct communication with the teacher is great and helps you to gain knowledge really fast, but what to do if you don't have an opportunity to meet with the teacher? Should it stop you from learning and having access to quality education? Should all people from small towns and villages give up their dreams just because of their location? I think the answer is no that's why I came up with an idea of an online language school. I want to give an opportunity to study languages for all people regardless of where they live. I would like to have teachers all over the world at my school. My school will give the ability to learn a great variety of languages such as English, Spanish, French, Italian, Chinese, Russian, German, Arabic. In my school, we will use a myriad of different teaching approaches and will try to make the process of studying absolutely fascinating. I want our students to learn not only by using grammar books but also by watching different videos, listening to songs and podcasts, communicating with people and reading books. One of the most important goals at my school will be for our students not only to achieve high results but also get real enjoyment in the process. Nowadays the technological development we have is astonishing that is why we should seize the opportunity and make our world a better place for everyone.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
When you have an idea in your head it is really important to be able not only have benefits for yourself but also have a positive impact on our society. I want my idea to be innovative so it can make a great contribution to our world. The first thing that my idea will give is that it is going to provide people with quality education. Particularly, quality education regardless your location which will also make us more equal and united. Another thing is that this school will contribute to the future economic growth and development of our world. As more and more people will have the opportunity to learn languages, they will use it in different spheres of life, improving communication between various socities and countries. Also, people will be able to find jobs more easily which will contribute to economic growth and an increase in human capital. When people are more united and speak the same language, they have an ability to understand each other better and solve other both small and global issues more successfully. Also, we will be really glad to see the progress of our students when after each month their language will be improving and improving. When they will go abroad, we will ask them to share their experience and tell us how our school helped them to communicate with people and get a better understanding of problems that exist there. Also, we expect that our students will feel more equal and involved with other people who have direct access to quality education. We want to see the development of our students not only as learners but also in their life in general as learning languages should have a positive effect on their career growth and integration in society.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
I strongly believe that we can change and improve our world through education, but each project requires a lot of contribution and effort that you should put into it. The online language school isn't one of the easiest things to do. Firstly, I need to find a proper person and with his help create an operational website where I need to find and download all the essential resources such as books, movies, reading and listening exercises. Also, I need to find teachers for my school while looking at their CV and having an interview with them. Later, I need to let people know about my school by promoting it and attracting students all over the world. Also, I can contact different bloggers and educational pages in order to raise awareness about the existence of such a school. When the process of creation is done, I will continue making improvements and innovations after the appearance of first students and their reviews. I will also ask them to make some videos about their achievements and experience in order to share them with other people who are thinking about joining our school. Maybe I will also add new languages if there will be a lot of interested students and change some techniques of teaching after listening to the opinion of our students
I am a 16-year-old IB student who has always wanted to achieve high results in my life and become a successful person. For me to be successful means that you achieve all the goals you have, working really hard but still enjoying what you are doing. Throughout my life, I always liked giving challenges and put high standards for myself. I am a Polish girl who was born in Belarus and now lives in Tbilisi. I moved here just half a year ago to study the IB programme in International School where I won a scholarship offered by the European Union. So, after studying here I met a lot of people from different countries and can say that I know how to communicate with various nationalities. Also, I was doing rhythmic gymnastics for 8 years which taught me how to be hardworking, patient, grateful and work in the team. I am a really ambitious person and in the life, I want to try as many things as possible that's why I have done all the possible activities and was involved in a great variety of events and conferences. I was always devoted to what I do which helped me to win different awards in gymnastic competitions, math and english olympiads, leadership programs and camps, photographic courses. Also, I have always been interested in learning languages and in my 16 I can speak 5 languages. However, knowledge becomes even more powerful when you can share it with other people that's why I would like to have this school. Using my ability to believe in the best together with my positive attitude will help me to overcome all the difficulties and continue doing what I started. Moreover, as an IB student, I have good time management skills which are essential
