The Helen Doron Teen English program to keep up with the ever-changing and expanding marketplace.
16-year-old Caroline Laschkolnig from Austria reflects on her Helen Doron experience: “I was first enrolled into a Helen Doron English course when I was only a year old, and nothing else in my life has affected me and my future as much as this learning opportunity. Having been simply handed over a language without me ever having to actively learn it, was a real gift as I later on discovered. I never struggled in school and excelled in my English classes. English has also helped me connect with other teens all over the world – online or at a youth conference in the US. There I could enjoy the culture and people without wasting a thought on which words to use, which tense etc.
Only after having been exposed to the typical learning process at schools (conjugating verbs, learning tenses by heart, I Realize that English had been gifted to me – I had fun in the HD courses and was casually handed over an entire language and therefore an entire world!
Another incredible opportunity presented itself to me when I was about ten, taking part in a TeenBuzz Radio show once a month to connect and inspire students like me all over the world! How could I have said no? And my confidence grew and I am very proud to be a broadcaster on a worldwide radio!!”
