What makes our teaching method different?

The teacher speaks as little as possible in the class, and encourages students to speak instead. The teacher briefly presents the lesson material (vocabulary and grammatical rules), encourages the students to speak using THIS material, and corrects students' mistakes. The number of students per class is very small; never more than 8, and usually 3 -4. During 3 hours of class per day, this gives plenty of opportunity for students to talk. Usually contact with the language does not stop after class hours. The teachers and the students live together on campus - or very nearby - and create a community. Many of the after-the-class-activities are organized in order to encourage contact between the members of this small community. The environment is friendly and relaxed.  There is no reason ...

The curriculum follows the guidelines set by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages that was put together by the Council of Europe. It is widely used in Europe to describe achievements of users of foreign languages. The Common European Framework divides foreign language users into three broad divisions (Basic: A - Independent: B - Proficient: C) which can be sub-divided into six levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2.

Can summarize information from different spoken and written sources, reconstruct arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation.
