Innovative Courses for Adult Learners
Learning a foreign language as an adult is very different from learning it as a child and requires a very different approach and techniques which will help the adult acquire language much FASTER!!!
Learning English should, thus, help learners with their immediate communicative needs and train them to become efficient communicators in order to take on and play the roles they wish within the community. Stale grammar teaching, or rote learning are far from the best course of action, particularly for the adult learner who has no time to wait and needs quick results.
Our Principles & Methodology
|Our approach satisfies immediate communicative needs|
|Language is best learnt through interaction and not through rule memorisation|
|Authentic materials are used extensively|
|Our syllabus is flexible allowing individuals to develop in areas of individual interest and/or concern|
|We train our students how to learn on their own, so they can keep learning and improving language skills even after the end of the programme|
|Our materials and activities are motivating and reflect adult reality|
|Oral fluency is one of the major objectives promoted from day one!|
|Learning about the target language culture and way of life is a major objective|
Stale grammar teaching, or rote learning are far from the best course of action, particularly for the adult learner who has no time to wait and needs quick results.
