By using the very latest communicative TESOL methodology in all of our courses, our teachers help students develop the confidence to use English freely, rather than merely memorising and repeating phrases from a textbook. The three-step methodology approach that we facilitate is called ‘Engage, Study, Activate’ (E.S.A.):
- First, students are Engaged in a context appropriate to the functions which will be developed in the lesson.
- Next, in the Study stage, target language is modelled, drilled and practised using controlled-practice activities.
- Finally, the Activate stage of the lesson encourages students to communicate effectively through free-practice activities.
'I found that my child became happier. He began to possess a positive attitude towards English and his English language ability has improved! Teachers of the centre are good and caring. Staff at the Centre are responsible and they care about the children very much.'
