Active and communicative
Our approach to language teaching is communicative, interactive and task-oriented. We take care to ensure that there is continuous interaction between all the students and we in turn expect you to participate actively in class. We provide maximum speaking opportunities through numerous practice-oriented and functional language tasks.
Classroom teaching is combined with assignments in groups or pairs.
Efficient and competency-focused
We train you in five language skills: reading, listening, writing, speaking and effective communication. The target language of the course is also the language of instruction.
The pace of our language courses is fast: you are required to absorb a lot of information in a short span of time. Consequently, you must process the course material before and after classroom sessions through self-study and distance learning. You are also expected to train your language skills independently.
Besides focusing on the communicative aspect of language, we also pay attention to the formal accuracy of your usage: your speech and writing must be grammatically correct, so that your audience is able to understand you without strain or effort. This way, we prepare you for the strict language requirements imposed upon the highly qualified in public life, during your studies and at work.
Varied teaching methods
We combine the best approaches from old and new teaching methods to ensure that you are able to study aspects of the target language in the manner that most appeals to you.
All course participants are highly qualified and have a comparable level of proficiency in the target language. To guarantee efficient classroom interaction and communicative teaching, a group consists of 18 participants on average.
Learning result and learning pleasure
Our teaching approach offers a framework where the constant interaction of learning result and learning pleasure is aimed at. Both objectives are the driving forces that enable you to develop your language skills to the fullest.
