How are the classes?
Fun, dynamic and always personalized according to the student’s profile: Personal interests, available time commitment, English level, and learning style. They are focused on speaking to improve fluency in addition to building your confidence (you’ll talk a lot!) while speaking about diverse, interesting and always current topics. Only when appropriate do we look closely at the rules of the language and grammar to communicate and be understood more accurately. Weekly or monthly, I will send you a fun “quiz” that can be done on your phone, tablet or computer, as a reinforcement of the most important points of the class (vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, etc.)
The STELLAR method is based on the notion that languages are learned more effectively in a “natural” way, that is, not focusing on grammatical issues from the beginning as traditional language schools do, but studying through the student’s own interests and passions. A language, contrary to what some say, is not learned by memorizing a list of grammar points and practicing it in a controlled way, but by making an effort to communicate in situations and on memorable topics, and in our case, with the support of a teacher who helps you with your communication difficulties. The emphasis, above all, is on making the participant feel comfortable being himself or herself, an individual, in the new language.
The STELLAR philosophy
We focus on the personal and professional development of our client through personalized training and with the aim of getting the best out of him or her. In addition, we work so that the classes … improve the client’s ability to speak and be understood in English with more fluency, vocabulary and self-confidence for personal or professional reasons. Our programme motivates and stimulates learning through a participatory and interactive method that includes the use of technology and / or a variety of dynamic and enjoyable activities such as simulations, role-playing games, and topics or situations found in their professional life or real life to motivate and enhance learning.
Classes are available for students of all levels of the European Framework for Languages (A1-C2), with a focus on levels from B1 to C2. Contact me to organize a free consultation session to discuss your sitation and your learning needs.
