INFORMATION: Lessons are on a one-to-one basis and following a needs analysis your tutor will design a course that focuses on your particular language needs. This course will cover many areas including pronunciation, sentence/word stress, grammar, vocabulary as well as the four skills - speaking, listening, reading and writing. Error correction including identification and monitoring and reduction of errors is always a priority and is a very important component of our courses.
Depending on course type your course will also cover areas of language that are relevant to you. Your continuing language needs are constantly monitored and the course focus can be altered to take these into account. Flexibility is important and of course more easily practised in the context of a one-to- one course! In this way we can offer an individually designed course that is relevant to your specific and individual needs. After all your time is limited and you want to study those areas that are identified as relevant to you!
As with all our courses, your specific needs will be identified and prioritised in the first lesson and the course will be designed to meet these needs. Our one-to-one method allows for continuous monitoring of progress and meeting evolving language needs so you can rest assured that your tutor will be flexible to ensure your course is relevant to your needs. The cost of these course depends on the type of course you require and the hours selected.
