Teaching methodology The teachers are qualified and experienced in teaching English to non-native speakers. Their aim is to help students develop the four elements of English language skills. They are reading, writing, speaking and listening. Concentrating on these areas will help students learn the English language as quickly as possible, and enable them to use it in the right context.

In each session, teachers try to focus on specific topics. This could be current affairs or general every day issues. They try to select topics that are of interest to the students, so that they can easily communicate with each other and take part in all the activities. These tasks are designed to make learning faster and fun, and the students get to know each other better.

Classes are designed to motive students and give them the confidence to take an active role in each lesson. Students work in groups as well as pairs where they are given various tasks and projects. If students have strengths the teachers will help to improve on them. And if there are weaknesses, they will also get help to improve.

In most of the classes students use newspapers, CDs, internet and video. This helps them to understand how English is used in everyday settings by native speakers. Every day of the week there are activities which student are encouraged to take part in, to enhance their experience of learning English. They can meet in the common room to get to know their fellow students.
