How We Teach

Pair work, group work and individual study patterns: We believe a relaxed learning environment is the most effective way to improve so we use lots of games, task-based activities and discussions which gives our students the chance to use what they learn in real communicative contexts.
Our syllabus is based around the common European framework and we do a book rental system whereby you can pay a small deposit for a book which is returned when you leave.  All other learning materials are provided.  Our teachers’ resource room is well-stocked with classic and new teaching materials.
Homework is given daily to develop on what you do in class and one piece of homework each week is assessed. We have internet access in all classrooms and interactive whiteboards in some classrooms.

Join Our Language Workshops

In addition to your course you can book 2 language workshops of 60 minutes each per week. The price for 2 workshops per week is £19.00 per person. Interested? More info.

A couple of challenges will be set and you will be presented with the main vocabulary relevant to the topic.

Flash Objectives

Mondays in the first lesson
To make your learning as personalised as we can your teacher will ask you to come up with your weekly flash objective. This is an aspect of your learning that you want to focus on for that week. It could be the pronunciation of a particular sound or the mastering of a specific piece of grammar. These are reviewed weekly and make up part of your personal learning plan.
free

Monthly Tutorial

By appointment
To make sure you are getting the most out of your time with us if you are staying 4 weeks or longer we have monthly one-to-one tutorials where you can spend time with your teacher to evaluate your progress, reflect on your learning and express any concerns you may have with your learning journey. You will need to make an appointment for this service.
