Gannon & Gannon is proud to announce the acquisition of property in the Village of Rebrovo. This picturesque site is the ideal location for future English Immersion Camp outings held by the Gannon & Gannon Language School.

The site chosen, is located high in the Balkan Mountain range with superb views of the immense beauty that Bulgaria holds. During these camp outings, students will the opportunity to take in the wonders of the nature that surrounds them while spending the week using and learning the English language in a native environment.

Presently work is underway to accommodate the various amenities to provide the student a safe and enjoyable time during their rustic summer adventure. Gannon & Gannon thrives on providing the best opportunity for students from all origins to learn the language as it was meant to be. We provide classes for students whether they are the majority or minority, stop by and asked about our programs.

In a drive to offer students more choices to further their education, Gannon & Gannon Language School has signed agreements with schools and facilities located in The United States, Canada, Ireland, and in Germany. These additional resources give the students attending classes the opportunity to choose how and when they participate in a program such as this. It is an excellent way to expand their knowledge of other cultures while being immersed in the language that they choose to study.

The study abroad programs focus on various programs that will help the student adjust and further their education to become competitive in today’s economical society. Acting as an agent for these programs allows Gannon & Gannon Language School to evaluate the student needs and to introduce them to an overseas school that will fulfill their desire to enter into the study abroad program. The advantage of using a school such as Gannon & Gannon Language School to help arrange the study abroad program is that the language requirements of the schools abroad can be met prior to enrollment into the selected program.

Many schools abroad require certification standard be met for certain schools and being a TESOL Authorized Certification and training center, Gannon & Gannon Language School can take care of this requirement. The TESOL Certification Program is an intensive course which provides participants with professional knowledge and skills in Teaching as well as tools for their own reflection and growth as teachers.

By preparing the student prior to entrance in to a university or another school of higher learning greatly decreases possible future trouble of not completely understanding the courses taught. This preparation dramatically increases the grade average of the student and allows them to get the most out of their education experience.

The Gannon & Gannon Language School was founded by Dennis and Petia Gannon in 2006, with the goal of providing a better understanding and a higher level of proficiency of the English language through professional teaching and training. Using communicative and student-centered methodology can make the educational process more effective, and enjoyable. Teaching in an easily understood manner has proven to help others learn to appreciate the different cultures.

ClockBack on May 18th 2009 the children from school #46 that were the beginning of the Time4Tots program started by the Gannon & Gannon Language School put on a play performed in both Bulgarian and English. The play was a huge success and the children performed great. Now as the new school year begins, the Director of school #46 asked the children to perform at the Bulgarian National Theater on September 18th for “The Day of Sofia” a holiday celebrated each year in Sofia, Bulgaria.
With no hesitation the children who put on the play “The Enormous Turnip” were once again ready to perform. This is a fantastic honor for all of the children and a show of appreciation for all of the hard work that they put into their performance and to help celebrate this holiday for the city. We hope that these continued efforts will inspire others to help the children in their communities.

The play was a huge success and the children performed great. This play was written by their second grade teacher and then translated, the children learned their lines in a very short period. For most of the children in the play, the English language is their 3rd language so it made the task even tougher. Pictures from this event will be posted soon on the time4tots website.

Time4Tots
In the first month of this drive, there was a very welcomed appreciation from the students and parents. Given the opportunity the students participate in every activity that is held with the eagerness to learn and to display their skills. As for the future, we will have to wait and see if the participation in this effort will encompass more schools and students.

One of our most recent efforts to give back to the community and to the children in the community is to donate time and knowledge for those who want to succeed. In cooperation with the local school’s Director (#46 Elementary School in Sofia) and other teachers, we started making time for the after school program to help the students understand the English language. By providing a few hours a week and minor materials the students are able to get whatever help they want and it also helps the over taxed teachers.
