Each assessment covers vocabulary and grammar, speaking & listening, reading & comprehension as well as writing prowess. Testing materials used are modified to suit the requirements of each company.

Methodology

Our approach to language training is a combination of traditional and practical methods. To implement audio-lingual methodology, we see to it that listening, talking and repetition are maximized. This allows our students to gain effective learning processes. Students are immersed in practical learning situations to assimilate the methods in less time. Oral communication is enhanced through the formation of sound speaking habits. Drills and exercises constitute the bulk of the curricula.

General Course Description

Students are grouped according to their level of learning and schedule. Below are brief descriptions of each level:

Basic
Aims to equip the learner with some knowledge in the language, enough to perform basic functions in familiar situations. After the course, the students are expected to be able to construct sentences on their own, mostly using common verbs or adjectives while observing basic rules of grammar. This enables the student to use simple yet functional communication in their chosen language.
Intermediate
The target of this course is for students to improve their ability to communicate their thoughts. The general aim is for these students to acquire a wider range of vocabulary and be able to sustain a conversation effectively expounding their ideas and beliefs. At this stage, however, complex grammar structures and higher vocabulary are still limited. Nonetheless, the students can be expected to compose standard business and personal letters.
Advanced
The objective of this course is for students to integrate more complex grammar rules and structures in their sentences. Students are expected to be able to communicate with confidence and attain a good command of the spoken language. Upon attaining this level, students can already recognize and respond to different forms of writing. Moreover, this course will help the learner to express ideas critically, as well as distinguish underlying meanings and intentions.
Proficiency
The students can be expected to understand the nuances of the language. The aim is for the students to be able to read and speak the language with ease, possessing a high level of fluency, like a native speaker. In most cases, this course will help students reach a comfortable level of comprehension in specialized topics such as politics, literature, business or science.
