I grew up in a very small village consisting of eighty one houses. Mine was the last one, number 81. The house was situated on a hill and was surrounded by trees, mostly by birch trees. There was a big forest with deciduous and coniferous trees. Nowadays this forest is called National Park and possesses the most common old stands such as oaks, beeches, pines, larches. Also there are a lot of heathers. People go there to pick wild mushrooms. When I was a child I went there a
HEIKE, Student in Switzerland - Nov 2021 Looking for any school to improve your language skills is normally quite easy. There are thousands of providers, institutions and private teachers vying for the attention of potential students. Finding the right school for your needs, on the other hand, is not as easy as it seems. I am fifty years old and I have been looking for a school that would be willing to satisfy the requirements of people like me. As I have more and more intern
DAY 1 We started our worldwide adventure by looking at the globe and we saw that the world is made up of oceans, seas and land. We learnt that the UK is a union of Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and England. We looked in our suitcase to see if we could work out what countries we were visiting. We found pasta, a pizza cutter, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and a boot! We flew to Italy to find out what language they speak, what they eat and what the weather is like in Italy. W
Day 1 was off to a flying start with our Safari Theme! We looked at the Big 5 and compared carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. We put various animals into venn diagrams to compare them. We also looked at some features of mammals. Our story of the day was about Gerald the Giraffe - we used it to talk about plot, settings and characters, as well as what the 'moral' of the story was - that we all have different things we are good at - we just have to discover what that 'thing'
Day 1 - Our Milky Way: Today we looked at all the planets in our Solar System. We made a Mnemonic to remember them: My Volcano Eats Monster Juicy Steaks Under Nando's! (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune). We labelled a diagram with them on, painted some 'galaxy' rocks to show how they orbit the sun. We found out that the sun is a STAR, not a planet - made of Helium and Hydrogen & a whopping great 100 million earths would fit inside the sun! We enjo
What happened on Day One Day One was action packed with a look at the planets in our solar system, a creative Mnemonic (devised totally by the children) to remember the order of the planets and then a model using painted rocks on a 'Space' backdrop to recreate our very own Solar System. That was all before lunch! After lunch we took a closer look at some 'Space' facts with the help of the Storybots which we then formed questions on for our very own 'Out of this World' board
I arrived in England just two months ago to live here as an Au Pair. During this time, I took WISE classes which were completely online which made them super accessible. Sadly because of the current situation and only online classes it is tricky to actually meet new people and chat to them. Therefore, I was very pleased when I heard that WISE was hosting a social art evening to meet other students and have a bit of a change in the lockdown routine.
Yesterday, I pa
We asked our students 'What do you like most about the course and WISE?' “I really like the teachers and the energy they’re giving to everyone. I would like more classes face-to-face but I understand about this situation so I’m really happy because every lesson I’m learning and I’m improving”. “I really like the attention that the students receive and social events” ‘My teacher is really good. I feel confident. She prepares many different activities so the lesson is really in

London is a great and versatile city, where everyone can find something they enjoy. With nearly nine million inhabitants, you can tell that there is a lot to explore. It took me a lot of weekends to explore all different spots and I am still not done. In this blog, I will give you insights into my life abroad as an au pair. Living in Walton-on-Thames gives me the opportunity to go often to London, as it is just a 25-minute train ride. London is known for its multiculturalism
Industry, commerce and businesses around the world have English as their primary language for communication. In this very competitive and global environment it is vitally important that all staff, where English may not be their first language, have at least the foundations of being able to communicate effectively with colleagues and with customers. That’s where WISE Weybridge can help you to add value to your business. We currently work with a number of businesses around the
STUDENTS and teachers at WISE took part in the ‘WISE Reading Week’ selecting some of their favourite books and explaining why their chosen book had inspired them. The aim of the week was to enthuse students to read in English, improve their grammar and vocabulary knowledge and to appreciate the works of English language writers, and the different writing styles. During the week, a couple of local guest speakers were invited to come into WISE to meet English language students
One of our Students, Pablo Fernandez, recently joined Oxfam in Weybridge as a volunteer. He found it a great way to meet people and practice his English!

I do not agree with it, at all. It's true that is usually unpaid work, but you obtain most importa

About Friday I'd loved the atmosphere created during the two events.
At the Au pair event I had the possibility to talk with other people and not only with my classmates and I think it's great having a school who want to create new friendships! The second event about the experience in Hong Kong was totally amazing! I love travel and listening to things about this new place for me was fantastic!

STUDENTS and staff at WISE gathered to listen to a very informative and entertaining presentation given by Liz Denham, Managing Director of WISE following her travels to Hong Kong and Borneo. Liz provided a unique backdrop to the splendour of Hong Kong, showcasing the density of the city, its frenetic pace and the panoramic views when seen from the very famous Victoria Peak, which is the highest hill on Hong Kong island with an elevation of 552m.
