All our methods have been created in our language classes with our students, tested on them and developed into practical and productive teaching techniques.
If you are ready to take your teaching and your students to the NEXT STEP, come and join one of our sessions.
The aim of our trainings is to reflect on different aspects of our teaching to increase the productivity of our classes.
The sessions are very interactive and thought provoking, will question your current strategies and you will walk away with practical and innovative ideas which you can apply to your lessons immediately. Each session will include feedback and an opportunity to ask questions and share ideas.
All our trainings are run by the teachers/trainers who have developed the methods themselves. With over 12 years of experience in the language classroom, the methods have been created and developed through innovative practices and techniques.
Our trainings and workshops can be run as a “stand alone session” to complement your in-house training day and/or full or half day sessions in your organisation or school.
We run regular open training days in many cities in Poland and ask you to contact us directly for the current schedule of events.

When Vocabulary and Grammar are taught as separate entities; how can we expect our students to connect the two in fluent communication? So many rules are taught, some are processed by our students, most are forgotten and very few are actually used in fluent communication. The methods of teaching grammar in this session are based on my 11 years of teaching Polish students, identifying their biggest problems and creating innovative and memorable methods and examples which enable students to actively use the grammar knowledge in their spoken communication.
This session came about after struggling with the same problems over and over regarding students’ inability to actually use the language taught in the class when they try in the real world.
I worked on some methods of memorizing language and speeding up the process of recalling it as and when needed.
During this session we will look at some innovative activities to get the most out of the time we have in the class and some different approaches I used to activate the language and enable my students to actively use the language learnt.

All too often in our classes our students want more than just a listening activity. In this session we will take a look at the way we can approach these activities.We will work on some methods associated with Task Based Learning to facilitate a critical approach to listening to help with a deeper level of activation of the language being taught.
We often use texts in class as a resource for newly introduced language to later be used in a communicative task. Maybe we have been looking at this the wrong way. In this session we will look at some ways of using the text as an active communication tool with the reading and processing of the language as a secondary aspect.
