Taking part in English courses for adults at BELS is an engaging experience that encourages real communication and student personalisation. We pride ourselves in adapting a communicative approach in our English courses for adults, but what does that mean exactly?
Essentially, the communicative approach puts communication at the center of all classroom activities in English courses for adults. Rather than taking an individualistic learning approach, learners have to participate in classroom activities that are based on a cooperative approach. In a classroom situation, that means providing English courses for adults that encourage working in pairs, having group discussions and working collectively to accomplish a task.
In our English courses for adults, our classrooms aren’t the traditional, rigid, teacher-centered ones you might be used to. Our classrooms come to life, our students are the center of the classroom and actively involved at all times. This approach to English courses for adults enables our students to become communicatively competent while encouraging real life usage of English which supports the learning process. Our teachers and course books use authentic materials to encourage practical and meaningful discussions about topics and situations that concern the real world.
Does this mean that the English courses for adults only focus on speaking? Certainly not. It’s a style of teaching grammar and all the necessary skills for using a language (reading, listening, speaking, writing). Using this approach for English courses for adults makes the language more meaningful, and you learn to use the language appropriate for a given social context. Our English courses for adults emphasize the relationship between the language and its social context, allowing you to use English appropriately and effectively throughout your daily life.
