Communicative Language Teaching
Our teaching methods are informed by the latest research in language learning. Our classes are enjoyable, interactive and relevant to your needs. As a student, you will be actively involved in the process of learning English and will get a lot of opportunity to practise speaking. We place a small number of students in each class, with a maximum of 20 to achieve individual attention. We adapt teaching methods to cater to different learner types to maximise learning and achieve aims.
Our methodology ensures that lessons are highly practical, and fully involve the participants, who engage in meaningful quasi-authentic tasks that reflect communicative demands of every day work situations.
A variety of interactive team activities such as role plays, problem-solving activities and personalised speaking tasks are used to help build the participants’ communicative competence and skills. We use a task-based approach to gauge needs and reinforce learning, and language points are taught via guided discovery. Learner autonomy is developed to ensure continued improvement.
It is essential that the participants enjoy the training and are able to direct their own learning. To support this, on-going feedback and reflection are central to our courses. Lessons are participatory and learner-centred which means that the trainers facilitate learning and support participants as they discover the structure and use of English.
Learner training takes place throughout the course. Trainers help participants develop strategies for studying and enhancing their skills outside class hours. They set self-study tasks for the participants throughout the course of the training.
