Teaching

  • All of our teachers hold a degree and appropriate EFL teaching qualification along with years of teaching experience.
  • We use a range of teaching techniques to suit multiple learning styles and different teaching methodologies.
  • Our classes are student-centred: it is the student activity and performance that matter.
  • Each lesson is tailored to provide students with communicative practice usable in real life. Different subskills are integrated in each lesson motivating students to stay involved and develop all language skills evenly.
  • We use elements of task-based learning, in which learning is driven by communicative needs rather than a set syllabus.
  • Students are encouraged to adapt course syllabi to their needs and interests
