Information on all courses
Every course involves some work on pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary,
speaking, listening, reading and writing. In your language needs analysis
you will discuss the approximate amount of time you would like to spend
on the various language areas. Your tutor will of course give you professional
advice but your wishes are always respected and taken into account in
every course! Therefore the content and direction of your course is planned
with you and only you in mind.
Lessons for all courses are 60 minutes each including a short rest period with your tutor
and take place in the morning and early afternoon depending on the number
of lessons you have booked. The exact schedule will be discussed and agreed
with your teacher on the first morning; however, it is usual to have the
majority, if not all, of the lessons completed in the morning. This schedule
will enable you to maximise your free time to explore the city and surrounding
There will be a certain amount of homework assigned each day connected
to the language covered. This provides a chance for valuable practice
of what you have learned and allows your tutor to monitor your progress.
The amount of homework assigned is agreed with you and should take no
more than an hour or so to complete.
On the final day of your course there will be an opportunity for feedback
and your tutor will recommend a strategy for future study when you return
home. We invite you to keep in touch with us and your tutor as we are
interested in your progress and of course hope to see you back at some
time in the future.
