    Teaching Approach

    For each individual, the way he or she feels most comfortable and motivated in language learning depends on his or her individual personality, his or her reason for learning the language, the time he or she has available for studying and many other factors besides. Experience in eight years of teaching has taught me that adjusting to the student's individuality is the key to unlocking his or her language learning potential. So, classes start when we begin to interact, as teacher and student. I hope to hear from you, if what you have read seems to match your own personal feelings about language learning. Let's see!

    Program Description

    Your language learning needs will determine the approach that is offered by me. For instance, if you are just starting your language studies, I will plan your classes in such a way that you get maximum benefit from the contact time we have together; your lessons will, accordingly, focus on encouraging you to use, straight away, the language elements you are acquiring in the lessons - we will clarify any grammatical points you may need help with and then we will put your new language knowledge into immediate effect, by applying the new language knowledge in conversation, in written excercises, in comprehension tasks and in language production tasks. The most important thing about the early stages of your language learning, though, is that you experience them as interesting and fun to engage with; so, the material covered in beginners classes will reflect, as far as possible, the areas interest that you have personally. If you wish not to undertake any specific type of language exercise, we can adjust your lessons to accommodate your wishes, while continuing to help you make progress in your studies. If you are studying at either an intermediate or an advanced level, then your classes will typically focus more on written and oral comprehension tasks, highlighting particular linguistic structures, vocabulary building, register of language and translation.
