Your English teachersWe place great emphasis on our selection of teachers. We look for well-educated, motivated, interesting people who will be capable of motivating all their students. They must be fully qualified and be experienced in working with foreign students. Our teachers have prepared themselves for their inter-cultural task through intensive studies, they have been trained in both traditional and more modern teaching methods, and frequently use role-play, rhythm exercises and word games. You will find the teachers friendly but efficient, and capable of responding to your particular learning requirements. Throughout your course, your teacher will be a supportive, understanding guide to the learning process who will monitor your progress and create opportunities for practice in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere.
