****HERE IS THE LINK TO THE FTE COURSES INDUCTION PRESENTATION: http://prezi.com/fdtorlcgl7ve/fte-student-induction/****
Welcome to Manchester and welcome to INTO Manchester.
All of you are here to improve your English language and study skills. Some of you will want to go to university next year. It is important to work hard if you are going to be successful.
Luckily, ‘working hard’ can be quite easy when you are learning a language. You will be able to improve your language skills by reading books, going to the cinema, surfing the Internet, meeting new people, going out with friends and asking lots of questions. Your teachers will give you advice on how to study. Your teacher will meet with you regularly to discuss the progress that you are making.
At INTO Manchester, we expect you to enjoy yourself and to be a serious student. We expect you to do the work that you are asked to do; we expect you to come to class on time; we expect you to speak English as much as possible. This is important for your study, but it is also important for the other people in your class.
Your teachers will help you by giving you useful, interesting lessons which they will prepare especially with your needs in mind. Your teachers will also be able to give you advice on study skills and ways to learn English outside the classroom. Please talk to your teachers if there is anything that you do not understand or if there is anything that you do not like in your class.
There are many things in Manchester for you to do. We are sure that you will enjoy your time with us. However, if there is anything that you are not happy about, please let us know as soon as possible. We believe that students learn best when they are happy. So, remember to talk to your tutor, to Neil, to Sandy, or to Diarmuid. If we can help you, we will. If we cannot help you, we will know somebody who can.
We will do our best to make your stay in Manchester a useful, enjoyable experience. Work hard and enjoy your time here! We hope you will join us on Facebook and/or Twitter!
