An educational institution in a residential area of a university city is a great place to focus on improving English. Here, nothing distracts students from achieving academic goals. At the same time from the school near the center of Cambridge with its magnificent architecture and developed infrastructure. I do not need to miss the leisure time at all.
The school is aimed at improving the communication skills in English and is based on an individual approach to each child. In groups of 15 people, teachers monitor the performance of oral exercises and effectively monitor the main language problems of each student.
Admission is allowed with any level of knowledge. Children with little experience in English are identified in the Beginner group, and improved knowledge allows the child to be sent to the Advanced groups.
The school is run by an experienced director who corrects the plans for classes and directs the training program. Pedsostav includes only those teachers who have passed the qualification and have experience working with foreign students.
English in all groups is taught as a foreign language. Practical classes provide 4 hours of practice per day in class and communication with peers from other countries outside the school. The groups are international, so the sharpening of conversational skills takes place in a relaxed atmosphere.
Children spend 15 hours a week in classes. The main focus is on listening. Students in the classroom use computers, additional hardware and projectors. Educational films simplify learning new vocabulary. The school provides the students with the necessary books and materials.
Students are enrolled on Sunday, and on Monday they test their knowledge and skills for grouping. A written examination determines the knowledge of vocabulary and general literacy, and a conversation with a teacher makes it possible to establish the level of oral proficiency in the language.
Visiting lectures in the developing Culture Club is provided for all schoolchildren. During the meetings, children can learn more about the traditions and culture of the places where excursions are planned. Before the trips the students discuss the history, famous personalities and the most famous events that took place there. Disputes and casual conversations allow you to quickly learn colloquial English.
You can confirm the effectiveness of language training on Trinity Exam. Passing the exam from Trinity College is not necessary, although many students do not refuse such an opportunity. On personal interview with the examiner is determined by the ability to conduct a conversation on a given topic and understand spoken language. The 12-point rating scale complies with CEFR standards.
