ILI Method

The classes offered by International Language Institute are developed based on the original method that we have developed over the years of our work 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 theUnited States.

The ILI method focuses on assuring all interactions in a foreign language, which makes it incredibly effective. 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, gradually increasing the difficulty level, and takes into account different learning styles in the language learning process that our students prefer (visual learners, auditory learners, kinaesthetic learners). More importantly, vocabulary and grammar are presented in context, which, combined with regular work, makes students quickly notice that they are developing language skills that enable them to use the foreign language independently.

Classes (group and individual)

While attending the classes offered by International Language Institute, students will be surrounded by the target language from the start, which helps them speak and think in a foreign language quickly.

We prepare our classes based on proven teaching materials by renowned publishers and extensive spectrum 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 for every day situations and must use the foreign language to find the specific solutions.

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 active command of the language, as opposed to passive knowledge, and become autonomous in speaking the language.
