Methodology

The teaching of real language for a real purpose in an action-oriented approach is at the heart of Eurocentres methodology.

We teach the language you need to communicate in real life. You do exercises to improve your fluency and your accuracy. And then we provide activities which require real communication. We pay very careful attention to the degrees of control in the practice leading from initial presentation of new language towards realistic communicative use of that language. Working in the other direction, we use communicative activities to identify your need for practice in accuracy or in fluency. This language learning cycle appears as follows:

The coherence of the links between presentation of new language and free practice in the realistic use of that language is one of the most significant signs of quality in a language course. It is the basis of the communicative approach.

This is why, in a Eurocentres course, we place such an emphasis on:

  • Consultation and planning
  • Framework activity
  • Experiential learning assessment
  • Monitoring your success

Your class teacher identifies your needs with you. The team of 2-3 teachers plans a programme integrating the language you are learning with the skills practice and activities you experience. They consult you about this every week. They tell you the plan for every day. On a Eurocentres course we treat you as a partner. We make you feel at home. We help you concentrate – and learn.
