Our host teachers are experienced in working with young people. Lessons are varied and interesting, combining more formal and disciplined work on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, stress and intonation with a variety of other enjoyable, less formal learning activities. Great importance is attached to varying pace and activity, and to maintaining your child's interest and motivation at as high a evel as possible.
During the first lesson, our host teacher carefully assesses your child's language learning needs through an English test and through questioning and discussion. Our host teacher plans and works through a course designed to respond to your child's individual profile of needs.
