What is an ESL Coach?
ESL stands for English as a Second Language. Its focus (as opposed to EFL, English as a Foreign Language) is to place the greatest emphasis on the learning process where the student takes responsibility and control over their knowledge acquisition. Most ESL students are highly motivated to learn English because of their career growth, self-education or desire to operate smoothly in any English-speaking country.
Who needs an ESL coach?
Ask yourself the following questions:
Do you need to speak and understand English during your work or to further your career growth?
Have you been studying English for years unable to move up to the next level?
Have you lived abroad for a long time, greatly improved your English and would you like to maintain your level?
Would you like to learn English while learning about interesting things, creatures or events -- not just drill?
If you have answered "Yes!" to any of the questions, consider study with an ESL coach.
Many methods are used in the classroom, but a heavy emphasis is placed on the communicative method, which enables students to learn at their own pace. Each course is tailor-made according to the nature, goals and needs of the individual student or group. Only authentic materials, created by native speakers, are used. The course is conducted in a natural way and students retain their knowledge without memorizing. Grammar and vocabulary are taught and practiced from context, allowing students to use English in real life situations.
