Sargis volunteers to teach English to his peers
Everything began in Italy where Sargis went to study as an exchange student a couple of years ago. Upon return, he would urge his friends, “You need to improve your English; there is no life without English in the modern world.” The knowledge of English of most of his friends was tending to zero. “At high school, before I realized the need and
importance of English, it was too late; I had missed the best time to lay the groundwork for that,” Iveta, one of Sargis’ coursemates, confesses.
Young people understand each other well enough and easily enough. Their interests and priorities are compatible, especially with literally tasty teaching methods used by Sargis: everybody comes to the class with a small pack of sweets. Sargis says, the taste and memory centers in our brains act solidarily; taste helps to better remember the new words. Judging from the enthusiasm and the results of the work done within only two months, this innovation has some “scientific” grounds.
