English for Adults

ENGLISH-LESSONS

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 main inspiration which drives the way materials are designed and programmes taught, is, first and foremost, belief in the principles of andragogy (as opposed to pedagogy), i.e., the educational philosophy governing the teaching of adults, whether in a group situation or in a one-to-one context.
According to this, we try to keep our adult learners involved in all the stages of the process, free to learn without being afraid to make mistakes, engaged through relevant content and discovery learning
aprobul1 Our approach  satisfies immediate communicative needs
aprobul1 Language is best learnt through interaction and not through rule memorisation
aprobul1 Authentic materials are used extensively
aprobul1 Our syllabus is flexible allowing individuals to develop in areas of individual interest and/or concern
aprobul1 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
aprobul1 Our materials and activities are motivating and reflect adult reality
aprobul1 Oral fluency is one of the major objectives promoted from day one!
aprobul1 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.
