 The course programme includes:

  • Grammar is not based on exercises but on understanding the rules before the time spent with the tutor to sharpen accuracy.
  • Vocabulary building: students expand their lexicon by researching collocation, synonyms, word patterns/ word families, etc and spending the time with the tutor refining the results of their research.
  • Reading is by definition an individual exercise which students work on before the tutor checks their comprehension ability. 
  • Writing skills are developed through essay writing on a variety of general knowledge subjects. The essay is marked with the tutor with helpful explanations to improve the next essay.
  • Listening: podcasts are analysed in the students’ own time prior to the time spent with the tutor who will assess the calibre of receptive skills and guide the students towards improved listening technique
  • Speaking: although this is considered as one single skill, the school works on the multiple facets of speaking skills: fluency, pace, pronunciation, intonation, diction within a variety of contexts such as a private conversation, a group discussion, a presentation or a speech. Oratory skills are developed through various forms of exercises that students are asked to practise before the lesson (often the day before the speaking lesson with the tutor): it can be in the form of a negotiation, a presentation, a lecture, etc.
  • Exam techniques: the course aims at making students exam literate, fully aware of the examiners’ expectations. This constitutes a solid map for gaining the relevant competencies to approach the exam with serenity.
  • Occupational English skills: students nowadays have a limitless palette of options for their further education. This course is devised to allow students to focus on the individual requirements of their chosen future occupation.
