The programmes are based on the following categorized levels of proficiency in the English language.
Beginner, Elementary, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, Upper Intermediate, Advanced.
Our classes are particularly suited to individuals or small groups; also those who live in Mayynooth, Celbridge, Leixlip, and nearby areas, and who do not wish to be part of large classes in the Dublin city EFL schools; also those who do not have time to travel to the city, because of their work schedules.
Our general programmes provide for the development of skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing -- with particular attention being given to proper pronunciation, a good vocabulary and accurate grammar. Work within each class includes: Students working as individuals, in pairs, and in groups; with teacher-led discussions and debates. Writing tasks, listening exercises and practicing previously-learned skills are important aspects of each course. After students have acquired a certain level of competence project work is given in order to facilitate their practical use of learned linguistic skills.
The agenda here is to provide people who have an interest in or an involvement with business affairs with the essential language for this purpose; and thereafter to practice these students in the practical use of their newly acquired vocabulary.
The ultimate objective is to provide a workable standard of English for job interviews, for advertising, for telephone and email conversation, for
marketing and sales, and for interaction with customers.
We concentrate on developing effective conversational and reading skills and thereby building confidence in the use of fluent English in a business related environment.
