Time Zones Sometimes we can really benefit from being in a scenario where it’s easier to communicate because the topic is in context, but what happens if the chosen topic is out of context? Our classes are designed to get you to think and talk about topics and subjects that are in both these genres. Helping you to begin to think in English and reduce translation time. We are a global company so you can select your individual time zone when you book a class. We are very flexible teachers so we are sure that you will find a time slot that suits your lifestyle.
There is a real benefit from having male and female voice tones, so you can choose to mix your course between teachers, we are all trained on the same materials and teaching format but bring a unique individual stamp to our classes.
Learning how to talk about topics that you would normally identify with in a mother tongue is a great starting point these would include the weather, news or general knowledge.
based on a simple model of a tennis match.
We serve a ball with a question, you return the serve with an answer in this sce“Learning is a step by nario your objecstep process so you tive is to keep the ball in play as long must apply patience”. as you can.
We believe that removing these stabilizers very often forces a student to think rather than just apply sentences that they have learnt with a lexical approach. Certain exam formats keep to set topics and this will probably never change as these tests are designed to measure general ability. Conversation building is based on the ability to select strands of information and divide each strand into a topic. This is easier said than done and requires considerable practice but we like to think of conversation
Just like Tennis, you get your turn to serve the ball (ask questions) without this interaction or contribution the ball will not remain in play and the duration of the match will be shortened. Interaction within a conversation can only function taking these two factors into consideration. It’s easy to forget how you maintained a conversation so we provide a recording focussing on key areas of a class, this way you have something tangible to refer to as we do not believe in books and paper.
Focus ! Throughout the process your learning needs come first. Confidence is generated from achievement.
