Thank you 2020, but we are so looking forward to 2021
What a year 2020 has been! And EVERYONE now has Covid-fatigue.
Let’s focus forward and believe that 2021 will be the best year ever! We are always optimistic at Avenue English and this is the time for me to say thank you to our amazing teachers and to those students who have stuck with us through thick and thin.
Avenue English was closed between 18 March and 14 September 2020. BUT, many of our students went online for lessons with Jacqui, Susan, Sally and Nicci. Our teachers all helped each other to learn new skills to teach online. I want to thank Nicci on behalf of Avenue English and the teachers for being so patient with all of our computer skills and for holding everyone by the hand to manage this new dynamic. We succeeded and we are so proud to be able to offer personallised, online classes forever going forward.
We were all so excited to be back in our school building in September. Of course it was a bit scary to navigate around the health protocols – but we did, and we do, and we are all so comfortable with ensuring the safety of our students while at school and in class.
I would like to thank the students who joined our private lessons, Beginner, Intermediate, Upper-intermediate and Advanced levels from September. Today we celebrated Regis’s last day as he achieved Advanced level – he has every reason to be especially proud to have continued throughout 2020 with his English language studies. We welcomed back our Brazilian couple who continued online and then caught the first flight back to be with us in person! In the Beginner level we welcomed new students from Turkey, DRC and Guinea and in the Intermediate level we welcomed new students from Brazil, Ivory Coast and Russian. The list is lengthy of thank you’s to all who make Avenue English a truly international, family school!
Let’s look forward to 2021. Let’s believe that the year will be so much better with fewer challenges, more laughter and more love.
Avenue English is closing for the summer break from 18 December and we are reopening on Monday, 11 January 2021.
Happy Holidays to you, and you, and you!
