This format allows for focused study, close attention from the tutor, international communication practice with classmates from around the world—all in one intensive English course. Students learn through simulated meetings, role-plays, discussions, and other communicative activities with specific language goals. Since they share similar goals and English levels, students support each other as they tackle these challenges.
These lessons teach language form and rules. Through use of all language skills, grammar is taught indirectly, using the latest methods and technology.
These lessons focus on developing students' understanding and use of written and spoken English. Students read and listen to authentic materials and learn to respond to them with social and cultural awareness and appropriate language. With this practice, they become able to express themselves fluently in a variety of contexts.
Students practice working with complex information in English, a valuable skill for all professions and studies. They think critically about current events by evaluating texts and sharing organized responses. This prepares them to solve complex problems and explain their opinions in English.
Students can work with tutors who are experts in a wide range of professional areas, including:
Students develop their speaking skills and confidence in a realistic environment, similar to a business meeting. They practice pronunciation, intonation, and performance. The goal is to speak with the authoritative voice needed for business leaders.
Students work in groups on a presentation, developing team-building skills as well as language skills. In their presentations, they are challenged to use specific new vocabulary and phrases. For example, they might propose a new business for an empty shop in downtown Boston or explain their academic research. The students would prepare a present their business plan using the new vocabulary list. The presentation is developed throughout the week and shared with the whole school on Friday.
