The classes offered by International Language Institute are developed on the basis of the original method that we have developed over the years working with business and individual clients. It is a modern teaching solution that is based both on the traditional communicative teaching method and the most recent developments in foreign language teaching in Europe and in the United States.
The main goal: Communication
The ILI method focuses on assuring all interactions in a foreign language which greatly enhances the effectiveness of the learning process.
Throughout the entire course, we develop all linguistic skills: listening, reading, writing, and speaking. Ever since the first class, we encourage our students to speak and respond in the target language.
Sequential approach is an important element of the ILI method. It consists in introducing and working through the material in a logical order with:
- a gradual increase in the difficulty level
- It also takes into account the preferred learning styles of our students (visual learners, auditory learners, kinaesthetic learners).
More importantly, vocabulary and grammar are presented in context, which, combined with regular work, makes students quickly notice the development of their own language skills and the fact that it enables them to use the foreign language independently.
At International Language Institute, we truly believe that it is OK to make mistakes. According to linguistic research, mistakes are a natural stage in developing language skills, both in children and in adults. This is why we encourage our students to experiment with the language, even if they make mistakes, and we show them how to learn from such mistakes.
First and foremost, we help our students develop predominantly active command of the language, and to achieve autonomy in using it. In this way, students of ILI courses can use the acquired skills in new situations without the supervision of the teacher.
We prepare our classes based on:
- proven teaching materials by renowned publishers
- and with the extensive use of authentic materials, such as podcasts, press articles, or TV and radio programmes.
An important part of our courses is formed by task-based learning, where a student is faced with challenges that are typical of real life situations and has to use the foreign language to find the specific solution.
