We’re a well-set newly opened educational communication center, which provides lessons for toddlers, children, teenagers and adults.
The groups are formed according to the level (determined during the interview) and the age of learners.These are: - Very Young Kids(aged 3 - 6) - Younger Kids (aged 6-8) - Older Kids (aged 8-12) - Teenagers (12-16) - Adults (16-…)
For teaching we use Oxford and Cambridge certified methodologies, acknowledges by the CEF of Reference.The methodologies in use combine five approaches of contemporary language learning.This “mix” is what we call a Natural Approach to language teaching.According to this approach, no translation is accepted (and there is no necessity to double translate into Russian and Romanian).The use of L2 in the classroom creates English-speaking atmosphere, generates English thinking, overcomes psychological language barrier and lets students face real - life situations. The lesson planning aimed at SWBAT (which is “Students Will Be Able To”). This means, that by the end of the lesson students will be able to use the language they have been exposed to.
Teaching toddlers we use modern visual aids, technologies and materials.Every lesson is a combination of games, songs, repetitions and constant live English - only communication.We also use videos, story-telling, crafts and projects when teaching.
The methodology used by our school maintains relaxed environment and easy-to-learn atmosphere. This means, that during the lessons learners use the language through communicative tasks, when creating projects, debating, when communicating with their groupmates and the teacher. The course implies absolutely no homework: we learn what to say and how to say during the lesson, drill and practice the language so that there is no need to overload our learners with extra tasks. The course is split into grammar lessons, vocabulary lessons, writing +check your progress lessons, language in use, video lessons, Culture in Mind (which is the introduction of cultures and traditions of other countries), Literature in Mind (which are pieces of literature orignally written in English).
The methodology used by our school maintains relaxed environment and easy-to-learn atmosphere. This means, that during the lessons children use the language through games, when creating something and doing projects, when communicating with their groupmates and the teacher. The course implies absolutely no homework: we learn what to say and how to say during the lesson, drill and practice the language so that there is no need to overload our learners with extra tasks. The course is split into grammar, vocabulary, skills (which are listening/speaking/writing/reading), fluency time (language in use, everyday conversations, set expressions), culture lessons (to introduce other countries and nationalities, their customs and tradition). Beginning with the 3rd level extensive reading lessons are a part of the course. These are pieces of classical literature originally written in English.
Teaching Very Young Learners is playing with them in English. That entire learners do is a show with lots of changing activities. Children of this age are not able to concentrate for long; they are looking for something new, want to move as much as possible, touch and taste everything. This is why we let them do what they want in an interactive way, guided by the teacher. They sing, dance, do projects, touch, move, listen to stories, cut and develop basic skills when learning English. This are the noisiest classrooms, that needs constant assessment. This is why the total number of learners in groups of this age is four.
