Dynamic Curriculum

To choose the Intensive program (8 persons maximum) is to favor a dynamic approach to improving language performance in both speaking and writing. This program is practice-based using quasi-authentic situations. A variety of session types are designed not only to help develop language accuracy, but also to allow the participants to overcome inhibitions and to use the language eloquently in all situations.

Course Content

Throughout this program, the student strives to attain the following objectives:

  • to gain confidence in speaking the language (presentations, interviews, etc.)
  • to develop accuracy in grammar and syntax
  • to understand and extract information from a written document (report, newspaper articles, etc.)
  • to improve fluency in the language for exam success at college, university or business school
