Adult learners have many different motivations for wanting to learn a new language or to improve their language skills. Recent clients include those learning for business, those buying property abroad and those who are learning for family reasons. Whatever the reason, we will take time to listen to what you want and to make sure that our classes reflect those interests.
While grammar remains an important focus, we will ensure that we get you using the language to complete practical tasks as quickly as possible. This helps to build your confidence as well as reinforcing your learning experiences. We use a range of resources including coursebooks specifically written for the adult learner, online international news sites and real-life objects as well as our own materials.
