How it works

We listen to what you would like to achieve, what your current capabilities are and discuss the most practical, cost-effective way of working with you.

We’ll create a proposal which details course objectives, training design and delivery, course reporting, feedback, review and assessment processes and full costs. This can then be discussed and amended as you require.

These are the steps we will follow together:

  • Needs analysis & level testing. We listen to your needs, and discuss your current capabilities and limitations
  • Course plan and learning objectives. Flexible schedules designed around your availability. We design a course which will be most beneficial to your individual needs, developing all aspects of communication in an efficient and cost effective way by setting clear objectives and learning outcomes. We understand that course objectives may need to be amended to facilitate any further requirements. Content and delivery of the course is regularly evaluated and progress is assessed. Lessons are timetabled around your schedule and can be postponed at one working days’ notice.
Sample syllabus – beginner level

The content will be supported by consistent work on core grammatical structures, vocabulary patterns and pronunciation.

Actual content depends on pre-course Needs Analysis, and is subject to on-going change as the course evolves. This is a sample module only.
