How will I be taught?
Whole and small group teaching - a little theory to help you understand, a lot of practical exercises to improve your skills; activities to improve your observation so that you can fill in the gaps in what you hear; stories and articles to improve your concentration; topics of interest to keep you up to date; and occasional games to make it fun.
Initial assessment is carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level. Each student's starting point is recorded on an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and targets are set to aid development of the skill. These are revisited from time to time during the course to monitor and record progress.
