Sensory activities with your teacher
Our Approach whether virtual or in-person, is to create an environment where the student feels comfortable to be themselves, free from any judgment, anxieties, worries, and away from the hectic pace of today's life. We nurture building a strong relationship of empathy, esteem, and trust between student and teacher as well as create a safe and reassuring learning environment.
All of our courses are highly customized, so 'tailor-made' to the objectives, background, and unique characteristics of of each student. We run from day one a thorough needs analysis of the leaner's training needs and assess their prior knowledge in order to design a specific course based on what really works for them and is relevant to the leaner.
It is critical to understand how students feel while they are learning, what emotions may block and motivate them, their negative and positive attitudes towards language learning, their opinions and their general behaviour in order to create a successful learning path by leveraging the student's strengths and turning weaknesses into opportunities for personal and professional growth.
Learning to Learn
It is important for each student, guided by the teacher, to know and recognise their own way of acquiring information, their most effective approach, channel and learning style so that the learning process is an absolute success. In this preliminary phase, the teacher also tries out and exposes the learner to a range of language tools to find what really works.These are then to be used not only to consolidate and extent the learning process, but also for self-study.
