Firstly, in order to determine the group in which the student would improve the fastest, we do a free, no-commitment level test. This consists of a personal interview, a grammar and vocabulary test, and a writing. Then, according to the results and the student’s objectives and availability, we recommend the most appropriate groups.
Our usual courses include two hours of class a week but, if the teacher deems it necessary for the student’s objectives, more hours could be recommended either in a group or 1to1 in order to meet the initial objectives. Groups have a maximum of 5 people. This is the only way for all students to take part and interact, therefore making the most of the lessons.
All required materials are handed to the students either by e-mail before the class or at the beginning of each lesson. The student is at the centre of the learning process and immersed in real-life situations so that they can apply what they have learned in class. This teaching method prepares the student for real communication —both oral and written— with other speakers of the language. For this purpose, texts, listenings, and authentic materials are used, as well as activities that imitate reality.
We know that exams are important, but we do not want classes to exclusively focus on their preparation. We believe that actually learning the language is far more important in order to eventually succeed at exams. For this reason, and in order to complete the course, we offer two weekly hours for exam preparation, when prior notice is given to the teacher. These additional hours are completely free.
There are groups of all levels from A1 to C2 both in the morning and in the afternoon. For more information, contact us.
