- Intensive English
The key concept is communication. We use task based, collaborative and humanistic approaches to create a positive learning environment where the focus is on practical classroom activities. All aspects of English language skills are covered – speaking, listening, reading, writing and mediation, as well as pronunciation vocabulary and grammar activities through a variety of mediums. Lessons provided in international gropups, consisting of people of different ages and professions, on the same level of language.
- Methodology
A blend of theory and practice. Participants will engage in practical activities based on Task Based Learning and Communicative Language teaching. We aim to equip our participants with ideas and materials that can be used with their own students. Throughout the course participants are given the opportunity to consider alternative practices, reflect on, and share, their own practices as well as try out a variety of classroom activities.

A) Communicative Language Teaching
We look at ways CLT can be used to make learning meaningful as it emphasises the need for interaction. We show participants how to implement learning strategies to improve language acquisition and make learning purposeful.
B) Pronunciation and Intonation
Pronunciation practice is exciting, interesting and meaningful. As a neglected skill in language teaching we bring it back into the class to show how beneficial it is to enable students to speak comfortably. Pronunciation is instrumental in improving listening ability and making oneself understood. No matter how good grammatical competence, knowledge of vocabulary and overall fluency are, misunderstandings can occur if there are pronunciation inaccuracies.
C) Task-based Learning
Instead of focusing on grammar acquisition and competence we show participants how to focus on the use of authentic language and to provide opportunities for students to exchange information with a focus on meaning.
Through examples, discussions, reviews and practices participants will be shown the numerous ways in which ICT can be integrated into everyday teaching so as to develop confidence in managing and utilizing ICT into the language classroom
E) Project Based Learning
Get a taste of what project-based learning is all about and how it can be incorporated into the classroom. Find out which tools best help integrate PBL into the language classroom, how to monitor and assess students, and how to design pro-communicative Language Teaching. We look at ways CLT can be used to make learning meaningful as it emphasises the need for interaction. We show participants how to implement learning strategies to improve language acquisition and make learning purposeful.
