Class & Materials

Class Time Structure: Effective / Productive use of your Time & Money

Class time : 2 hours.

1. We review the grammar and vocab that we did the previous day, and previous week for 15 -25 mins.

2. We work on weak points in the students languages (prepositions for example). 15 – 25 mins.

3. We complete 2 pages from “Market Leader” Intermediate which includes new vocab, definitions, listening and reading comprehension and a lot of talking. Themes are all business orientated and include Brands, Travel, Change, Organisation, Advertising, Money etc…
This concentrates on use of English, comprehension and a lot of speaking practice.

4. I make written corrections and repeat them after each question/ section. This is mostly correcting the language the student already has and the new vocab from the book.

5. In the final hour we choose an extra topic / theme (Ted.com, video, multimedia etc)


complete a preset exercise.

6. Revision on vocab and grammatical points. (10 Mins)


Course Programs are designed specifically for each student but based on the following materials.

1. Course Books:
