All children shall have chance to learn English

Short Summary

My name is Szilvia Rácz. I am a teacher of English as a foreign language. Being a mother of two, I am aware of language learning opportunities for kindergarten or lower elementary kids. I have seen several teaching materials: books and CDs. The best and most effective are courses for kids. However, they are very expensive, especially if you have 2 or 3 children; you have to take your beloved to the course, and in most cases their courses are in different time so you and the others have to wait. And several families do not have access to these courses in faraway places. I wish to help parents who: – have children aged 2-8 – cannot afford courses for all their kids – wish to learn English together with their children – do not have access to any interactive language learning opportunities. My goal is make a series of 20 DVDs with instruction to parents on how to learn together with their children. I have lots of experience as a teacher, and have lots of ideas to carry out this plan and make them available for people in need. I believe the best way for children to learn anything is to do it together with their parents. And these DVDs both give the pleasure of being together and learning something valuable.

What We Need & What You Get

I, as a teacher of English as a second language, want to collect money in order to make teaching materials for parents and children living in hidden and faraway places. I want to make a series of DVDs with parents’ manuals. I show parents on the DVDs what to do, and with the help of the instructions in the manual, they can sit down with their children and learn together, even if they don’t speak English. I need 18,500 USD to make these teaching materials, including DVDs, story booklets for the children and manuals for parents. I wish to sell them at production price. I know how much it means for people in need. I have tested my pilot materials on my children and their friends, and they were happy during learning as well as afterwards when recalling the activities and the characters from the story booklet. I would highly appreciate if you could contribute to give the opportunity for those little kids to learn. Should I not reach my entire goal, I would not make a complete set of 20 DVDs with the relating kids’ story books and parents’ manuals, but as many as I can make out of the amount received.

The Impact

I had the idea to make the supplementary materials for parents as simple as possible, using objects available in any home. I plan to make a campaign at parents meetings in kindergartens and elementary schools in villages and smaller towns in Hungary to introduce the Sunny Side English teaching materials. My further plans are to make these materials available in other countries as well; then Spanish in English-speaking countries.

Risks & Challenges

There are no risks about carrying out this project if I can reach the amount I would love to collect. I already contacted a cameraman who can make professional recordning and editing. I have asked for quotations for making DVDs and print office work. I assume that all the 20 sets can be done within 25 weeks, including recording, editing, Should I not reach the financial goal, I cannot make a complete set 20 DVDs, however, all are dependent on each other. All the teaching materials I wish to make will be enough for young learners of English for a year ro so, depending on their enthousiasm to learn more and more.
