Teaching Methods

When teaching a foreign language, it is very important to choose the right approach and methods. A language is not just a set of words and rules. It is a complex system which contains several components. If you miss at least one of them, you will inevitably face difficulties in communication. What are those components? – They are grammar, listening, reading and writing skills and, of course, speaking practice (accumulation of new vocabulary, pronunciation training, etc.).

Each lesson we have is made up of these components; as a result, students form a complete perception of a foreign language, which is vital for its successful mastering. Let's see more clearly how this approach is embodied in our classes.

 

Grammar

On the lessons, we consistently introduce students to the grammatical foundations of a foreign language - this is a kind of basis for future knowledge, which requires special attention. The main criteria for the submission of a new grammatical material are:

  • an understandable explanation of a rule and its analysis on examples of natural colloquial speech. It must not be just a theory! A student experiences the situation and independently comes to the right conclusions.
  • A variety of practices. It is not enough just to understand the rule. It must be used in speech practices so that it is fixed in the mind. For this purpose, we provide various exercises: starting from templates, aimed at fostering knowledge, to creative ones (audio, dialogs, texts, films, songs, etc.).

 

Listening

Listening comprehension is one of the most difficult tasks for many students. We pay special attention to this area. Listening practice includes both short dialogues and longer texts (conversational situations, interviews, stories and songs). You will have both simple tasks "Listen and check answers", and more difficult ones (to catch certain information, the main idea, listen and express your opinion).

Speech in the records is also diverse: there are British, American, Australian accents, as well as recording of non-native speakers’ dialogues.

 

Writing

The knowledge of written language is as important as the ability to speak correctly. It is especially important for people who deal with writing letters, presentations, feedbacks, etc. Therefore, we provide practice of different styles and types of writing - e-mails, postcards, filling out questionnaires and forms.

 

Speaking

Of course, having received theoretical knowledge, we must apply it into practice. Speaking is the main criterion of learning for many people. It does not matter where you use a foreign language: at work, while traveling, among of friends - it is important that you speak right.

We provide many ways to practice the fluency of your speech:

  • topics for discussion;
  • conversational situations to practice communication and use your new vocabulary;
  • specific language constructions and examples of how to use them.

We do everything to help you overcome the language barrier and express your thoughts freely.

To practice and check the knowledge you’ve gained, we offer tests that will help you see the result of your efforts.
