- Novelty (implies the use of different speaking tasks and allows effortless memorizing material);
- New Situation (the material is selected with regard to the preferences and needs of each student and presented in the context of interesting, memorable situations that provoke discussion);
- Functionality (the material should be effective);
- Communication (practical use of language in the classroom ); Individual approach (in a group or one-to-one, all the materials were selected, taking into account the individual characteristics and capabilities of each person). The communicative Approach includes many new approaches to teaching foreign languages with a great emphasis on audio-video and interactive resources. This very approach works well for most people and helps them study the language more consciously and faster.
Why students choose us
We are proud of our teachers and students. Teaching is the work of our lives. Our work brings us joy and satisfaction, because every day we see the results of our work - the success of our students. We are like-minded people and professionals who are ready to support their students, raise their level of knowledge, believe in them and be with each student at the exam, interview or when signing the other contract with foreign partners. We continue to grow and develop, to conquer new professional peaks and meet high standards of quality of education.
Methods of Teaching
The focus of this method is to enable the learner to communicate without any feeling of fear effectively and appropriately (in the various situations the student would be likely to find oneself in). The main principle of this method echoes the famous statement "If you want to speak – speak!" The communicative method involves maximum immersion in the language process. With the help of interesting systems of exercises, you learn to speak correctly, and freely, and express your thoughts, overcoming the psychological barrier. The communicative method of teaching is based on the principles:
The linguo-sociocultural approach combines linguistic structures (grammar, vocabulary, etc.) with extra-linguistic factors (gestures, facial expressions, emotions) and knowledge about the culture, features and traditions of the country language of which you are studying. We learn the world through thinking in a certain cultural field and use language to express our impressions, opinions, emotions, perceptions. When teaching you, teachers use not only audio, video and interactive resources, but also information about cultural features, traditions, nature and other factors that influence the formation and development of the nation. The purpose of learning a language using this method is to facilitate the understanding of the interlocutor, the formation of the perception of the language at an intuitive level. Therefore, everyone who has chosen such an organic and holistic approach should treat the language being studied as a mirror that reflects the geography, climate, history of the people, their living conditions, traditions, way of life, everyday behavior, creativity.
The teachers use the literature of authoritative publishers such as: Also, you will find interesting and informative audio, video, and Internet resources:
