Jolly Learning in Spain

  • Luiza Maria Rogerson

    Murcia

    Born and raised in Canada, Luiza is a graduate of the University of Lethbridge (BFA Dramatic Arts, 2004). She began teaching English in 2005 in Spain, where presently she is a bilingual infant school teacher. Her passion is teaching young children and her love is using Jolly Phonics which she has observed as a powerful method for developing English literacy and speech.

    Luiza’s kinetic, colourful approach is received enthusiastically by her students and is ideal for teachers dedicated to creating an active classroom learning environment. Her results with students demonstrate that enjoyable learning is effective learning, and Jolly Phonics provides the ideal method to support these two essential objectives.

    Premo “fell in love” with the Jolly Programme in 2008, since then she has been joyfully learning and growing with her Spanish speaking students. In her opinion, the multi sensory way of Jolly learning is a twenty-first century approach to the literacy process that each child has the right to go through with joy, and to inspire further love for reading. She has focused her attention on both infant and primary years, not only teaching in different levels, but also coaching other English teachers to successfully implement the programme.

  • Pedro Izuzquiza talks Music and Phonics

    Jolly Music Trainer Pedro Izuzquiza recently had an article published on music and phonics in an online music magazine Doce Notas.

    Pedro talks about how music is important, but is not always a priority in the curriculum, some people may even say it is a ‘waste of time’! So Pedro discusses how he found himself in the position of having to teach music in English. Although he is a specialist music teacher, Pedro found he was not, at the time, comfortable teaching the subject in English, however very quickly grew to love it! Jolly Music has helped Pedro build a suitable repertoire for young ESL-learners with the use of simple, easy songs. Pedro goes on to give a lesson plan and mentions some of the music/english concepts that are covered.

  • Bringing Jolly Phonics to the Serranías De Ronda

    Yvonne Dalorto, Jolly Learning certified trainer in Spain, has started working on the project aimed at improving the level of English in the Serranias De Ronda, Spain. The wonderful literacy project, endorsed and supported by Chris Jolly, will provide children in small villages’ schools with materials for learning to read and write in English.

    English language is becoming of a more importance in Spain, where students are required to qualify at the B1 (Beginners 1) level English exam in order to continue their studies in higher education institutions. Children in Ronda’s secondary schools generally have lower levels of English due to the lack of consistent teaching and the lack of teaching materials. Many schools in villages are spaced out and the teachers are rotating their classes at the different village schools, providing several hours of English teaching weekly.

    Twenty five teachers along with Yvonne Dalorto braved the freezing cold weather and, with the support of the local government the ‘Junta de Andalucia’, were able to deliver the training session at C.E.P (the Centre for Teacher Development) in Ronda. Yvonne Dalorto also had an opportunity to meet teachers in the region, who felt they were under equipped to deliver English classes and were frustrated with the time scale as well as the planning of English classes.

    It seemed logical that using Jolly Phonics would address many problems that both teachers and students are currently facing. Chris Jolly was enthusiastic about supporting this literacy project in Ronda. He willingly donated 6 boxes of materials for schools, which were nominated by the local government. Once the teaching with the donated materials starts, children’s progress will be monitored. Participating teachers will also be encouraged to exchange their feedback, teaching ideas and discuss any issues that might occur in forum.
