A common method streamlines all our language sessions:
We use some
of the trainee’s day-to-day situations to introduce
(question/answer in the target language) a new language
structure. Main tools are terms familiar to trainee or easily
understandable ones, taken from other languages trainee is
already acquainted with.
Initially the trainee will be asking
the questions, based on the
given input. Later on, roles will be switched. The new structure
will then be derived from
this conversation. In a third stage new related words will be
introduced by means of simple associations, pictures, objects
and the like.
These new terms will then
be practised using the newly acquired structure.
of trainings/tuition do we offer?
running modules of 20 to 30 hours, with one or two
sessions/week (minimum 1,5 hour), semi-intensive modules
of 3 to 4 hours daily for 5 consecutive days, or
intensive modules ("immersion programme" of 6 to
7 hours daily for 5 consecutive days, lunch in the target
language included in the price)
Individual and group sessions are possible.
the customer’s premises or at the trainee’s home address
(for private groups, another location can be arranged).
do we proceed when planning a new series of sessions?
trainer screens the trainee’s present knowledge level during
a conversation in the target language.
Reference is made to
Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
Trainer will then inquire specifically about what type of
situations the trainee will need to use the target language
you a report of this initial evaluation session, mentioning
what material we deem to be most appropriate for the actual
Case need we will also ask for supporting company documents,
eventually related to trainee’s function.
Furthermore we will recommend the most suitable amount of
sessions, with the option for an intermediate evaluation
halfway the complete training period.
In any case you will be given a fully detailed report after
the last session, explaining the progress made as well as
the aspects which require additional attention, possibly
during a limited extension of the training
