The English Experience Language School (EELS) will now be offering a new format for learning and practicing language: Excursions in English.
Excursions in English are one day or half-day visits to local areas of interest. Excursions include transportation, pre-visit online resources and materials, pre- and post- verbal knowledge building and reflection, authentic language practice with support, and online review and editing of written reflection.
Our first excursion (field trip) will be on Monday, January 8, 2018 – WOMEN ONLY
Our destination will be Birthwise Midwifery School
Birthwise Midwifery School is a three-year school founded in Bridgton, Maine in 1994. Built on the principles of female empowerment, natural birth, and skilled professionalism, it offers one of the first comprehensive training programs for direct-entry midwives in the United States.
This Excursion in English will include:
- a list of vocabulary related to the topic
- a list of informative websites
- a tour of the facilities at the school
- an informational lecture about midwifery, the school, the enrollment process
- Pre- and Post- verbal question and answer sessions
- online review and editing of written reflection
Note taking is encouraged for academic practice and post-visit written reflection. The written reflection is not mandatory, but is encouraged for a full language learning experience. All written reflections will be reviewed and edited online within one week of the submission.
There are 2 spaces available for this learning experience. Women interested in nursing or the medical field, especially maternity (motherhood) and neo-natal (newborn) care are encouraged to apply. Contact
Round trip transportation from Portland will be provided by EELS.
