Direct Method

The best way of learning a language is to SPEAK it. Therefore Direct Method for English, which is based on oral practise, is our main course book.

It is a modern series, designed to help the students to master a lot of lexis through regular revision at the beginning of each lesson, followed by intensive practise of new work.

The teacher introduces new vocabulary or grammar and then asks questions which contain these new words and grammatical structures; in this way all the new material is practised in context.

The teachers speak to students at a natural conversation speed which enables them to communicate freely in English.

 There are 12 stages, ranging from 1 – Beginner to 12 – Advanced.

New English File

New English File offers a perfect balance of interactive vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation exercises necessary to improve not only speaking and listening, but also reading and writing skills, essential to communicate in an English speaking environment.

The course books draw on authentic materials and focus on every day language. This encourage students to learn and used the new grammar and lexis that they hear on a daily basis; they solve problems as well as participate in debates and discussions, which boots our learners confidence and gives them a sense of achievement whilst communicating in a foreign language.
