    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.

    Jolly Phonics Early Years Training

    Date: Saturday 28th January

    Venue: C.E.I La Casita de Chocolate, Jolly Good English Academy 28, Roquetas de Mar

    Early Years topics, language play, songs, art and role-play are some of the innovative projects we have ahead of us and are keeping teachers on the ball. But it is possible for children in the earliest stages to become aware of how sounds are linked to letters and words, creating positive reading and writing experiences right from the beginning, let alone excellent pronunciation that we can obtain in such a shot period of time, evolving the rest of our class curriculum. The use of Jolly Phonics as a literacy programme can do wonders for any struggling students of any age, but if you start to use this method with preschoolers, and are able to continue, the results are spectacular.

    Raising awareness of the 5 corse skills implemented in the first year of the Jolly Phonics programme is hugely beneficial for creating an awareness of the different sounds in the English language. Creating natural teaching opportunities for reinforcing and introducing pronunciation, vocabulary and language comprehension skills are essential for young ESL learners and can form a natural part of our teaching environment.

  • 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.
