Teaching Approach

Speaking

  • Vocabulary, Grammar & Pronunciation are mainly practiced through interviews where students answer the teacher’s questions using new vocabulary & grammar right away
  • The method encourages learning in lexical chunks, rather than on a word-by-word basis
  • Just try to answer questions the way you have understood them. If you make a mistake, your teacher will correct & assist you

Reading & Listening

  • Texts, videos & audio contain the same vocabulary and grammar which are trained and strengthened while learners answer teacher's questions for their practice & activation
  • All activities are logically connected. Lots of connections make it very easy for your brain to “see” the word you want to recall when you are trying to remember it
  • Discussions of articles, videos and audio develop the ability to express your thoughts in English fluently & accurately, to ask questions

Grammar & Vocabulary Exercises

  • The main feature of our teaching method is a Complex of questions, videos, exercises, dictations, texts & audio tracks which are joined together and directed at providing students with the ability to comprehend & speak real-life English
  • This complex was built in such a way that all necessary words and grammar can be easily and quickly mastered and remembered

Visualization - realistic & experiential

  • For fast and long-term memorization, new words are always visualized using colored pictures, short videos & the verbal presentation of meaning

  • Each lesson always starts with the revision: we activate vocabulary and grammar learned during the previous class
  • As soon as one Unit (10 lessons) is finished, we do Unit Revision. Finally, when the whole level is over, we get down to the effectively designed Complex Revision
  • All these Revision Blocks work together to draw everything you learn in your long-term memory, and to promote, maximize & automate all your English speaking skills
