Methodology

Methodology of learning English

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Focus on key language structures, rather than on grammatical rules.
    E.g.: our students make active use of the structure ‘Have you ever…?’ without the explicit knowledge of Present Perfect
  • Focus on key vocabulary: 2000 key English words.
    Using these words, the students are able to explain/define other words outside the scope of the syllabus. E.g.: our students might not know the word ‘glue’ but they can easily explain it with their active vocabulary ‘substance/stick/object / together/use’ (‘it’s a substance used for sticking objects together’)
  • Modular learning:
    the whole programme is broken down into modules and progress checks between them. Each module is made up of some particular language structures and vocabulary the knowledge of which our students are supposed to demonstrate at the end of the module. Thus, the progress control is carried out throughout the whole course.
  • Compulsory home tasks:
    at the beginning of each module our students are provided with the brochures with home tasks which aim at the reinforcement of the specific structures and vocabulary. The completion of all home tasks is the essential prerequisite for getting access to the test at the end of the module. The students are also provided with the extensive home reading of both graded texts and originals for passive vocabulary extension and forming the essential basis for language immersion.
