Dynamic Curriculum

To choose the Octorial™ 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.
