Conducting online classes following a coursebook plus a high amount of speaking and grammar resources.
Speaking: Conversation is key after learning a grammar or a vocabulary point. It aims at putting the new knowledge into practice. Speaking cards, debating and giving opinions, role plays, pictures and commenting feature articles are essential to gain fluency.
Pronunciation: adding a bit of fun can make a real difference! Tongue twisters, songs or short stories help students articulating the words better as well as recognising the sounds/tone.
Reading and comprehension: analysing texts, guessing the writer's opinion and understanding the real meaning according to the context of the sentence is crucial.
Listening: a wide variety of multicultural listening material combined with follow-up exercises according to the student's level.
Writing: learning to create short and different pieces of writing according to the student's needs (job emails, articles, reviews, business writing or feature articles).
Others: Ss need to feel comfortable and enjoy the process of learning in order to gain confidence. They need to feel that learning is fun, practical and that goals are totally achievable!
