ESB assessments in the UK are occasionally hit by the odd train strike or centres being snowed in – but never by tropical storms!
This is what happened for our some of our intrepid learners in Trinidad and Tobago. Recently students from the ‘Lengua Lynda’ Tuition Centre in Trinidad and Tobago had to contend with ‘National Disaster’ flood warnings on the day of their assessments.
However not even a threat of a ‘National Disaster’ storm, could dampen the warmth, humour and vitality of the work from this centre, according to ESB Assessor, Ian Patterson.
He was very impressed to see the results of the obvious hard work and preparation the learners had put into their ESB assessments.
Says Ian, “After nineteen hours flying time from the UK to the Port of Spain Airport it was a true joy to be refreshed and rejuvenated in the following days by hearing a range of interesting talks from the enthusiastic learners.”
In their assessments, the children and young people delivered colourful presentations, expertly using visual aids and props on every subject from ‘Dragonboat Racing’ to ‘Ripsticks’, ‘Planets’ to ‘Dolphins’, and ‘Babies to Hats’! Some interesting local book choices included ‘Tanti at De Oval’, superbly read in Creole dialect.
Adult Professional Presentation Skills candidates were well represented by Lawyer, Candice Matoorasingh and Personal Fitness Trainer, Dean Cruz who delivered terrific talks in jargon-free, expressive language.
With over 30 years teaching experience in the Caribbean, England and Spain, Lynda Banks is a highly qualified ESB facilitator. She works with her colleague Amanda Jardim delivering dynamic student-centred workshops to children and adults on Trinidad island.
