Our English courses are unparalleled…
Professionally relevant content is the central element of our ESP courses – study materials allow development of learners’ English language skills, vocabulary appropriate for formal interactions in English and professionally relevant competencies.
Differentiation and Individualization – these modes, favored by supporters of “natural language acquisition” method, allow us to promote self-directed learning and enable skills mastery.
Differentiation – adjusting the program and materials based on each group of learners, their needs and interests; using tasks that support each learner’s English skills development in a group.
Individualization – aligning course materials to each learner’s prior knowledge and English language goals; identifying and meeting each learner’s specific needs during synchronous sessions and asynchronous interaction.
Last but not least…
