About Life Skills
As teachers we strive to create learning situations where students develop their skills. Once upon a time exams success = college/job success, but today colleges and employers are demanding more. Individuals that stand out from the crowd at work, at school and in society are those who often show competency in life skills as well as academic skills.
“… as English becomes more generally available, little or no competitive advantage is gained by adopting it. Rather, it has become a new baseline: without English you are not even in the race.” – David Graddol, English Next (2006), The British Council
