The aims of the course

The course aims to develop students’ skills in three areas:

1. Survival skills;

2. Language communicative skills;

3. Social skills


A: Survival skills:

To provide students with information on the nature of three natural disasters

( earthquakes, floods and fires) which are most likely to happen in our geo-physical location as well as to inform them about the most appropriate actions they have to take in order to be prepared to face dangerous situations so as to survive, or to help other people in case of casualties, or how to avoid additional injuries and damages.


B: Language communicative skills:

Through various activities to exercise the four main communicative skills – receptive and productive:

To encourage students to read additional information in articles, (developing their reading skills), to listen and watch videos for general understanding ( developing students’ listening skills) to share thoughts orally – in class – speaking and in written form on the platform ( developing their speaking and writing skills)

To teach new vocabulary on the topic

To create inter disciplinary links between Geography, Historyand English


C: Social skills

*To encourage students to do their “boring” school work

*To encourage students to use the internet for educational purposes

*To get students know more about specific jobs such as of a nurse and a firefighter, which do not seem to be popular with and desired by young people
