In the initial interview, the student’s objectives are defined, and their current level of English knowledge is assessed via an oral and written level test. From there, we design a study program together, setting concrete and realistic goals.
Priority is given to optimising communication skills by means of a greater and deeper knowledge of the language and developing speaking confidence.
With this aim in mind, a great variety of materials are used, these being selected in accordance with each student’s level, needs, interests and objectives.
During classes, teacher time will be used for optimising results. We speak on a variety of topics, listen to a range of accents in order to sharpen listening skills, read fun and interesting texts, correct exercises and resolve doubts on all kinds of questions related to the language. We work towards the objectives established at the beginning of the course.
The study programs are designed to be a thorough as possible, dealing with all the fundamental elements of language learning.
Speaking: improve fluency, accuracy, pronunciation
and speaking confidence.
Understanding: develop listening comprehension in different
Vocabulary: understand the importance of an extensive vocabulary
in order to improve speaking and understanding.
Phrasal Verbs and Idioms: (or real English).
Learn idiomatic expressions, phrasal verbs, sayings, and colloquialisms
all of which are omnipresent in the English language. It is
an absolutely essential task for anyone who aspires to a really
proficient level of English.
Grammar: eliminate serious problems which impede communication
and improve accuracy in general. Special emphasis is placed
on correcting mistakes characteristic of those students whose
mother tongue is Spanish.
Reading: an effective way of both increasing passive vocabulary
and consolidating grammatical structures while at the same
time enjoying an activity which is pleasurable and valuable
Writing: not only does this reinforce new knowledge in an
active way, which greatly helps retention, but it is also
a very important means of communication in the world of business.
In addition, creative writing is an excellent way to experiment
with the language and extend knowledge.
Outside class time, students are encouraged to do extra study
at home in order to consolidate new knowledge and progress
more rapidly. The aim is to help students design a self study
program based on their interests and time available so as
to maximise learning. The program includes both multimedia
(DVD, radio, music, games, software) and traditional resources
such as newspapers, magazines, simplified reading texts, vocabulary
exercises, grammar and pronunciation.
