TEACHING MATERIALS AND METHODOLOGY
The Centre''s faculty has produced original teaching materials for all our language programmes. These consist of texts, a collection of original visual materials (photos, videos, cassettes, CDs) and a collection of language games. Teaching materials are based on ideas formulated on teaching in the classroom and are being constantly improved according to their systematic application by our teachers. These materials are also used with large groups in consistence with the principles of individualized teaching. Theyincludealternativetextsandexercisesfor usein mixed-abilities classes and in multilingual-multinational classes.
The aim of our courses is to practice all language skills (oral and written speech production and comprehension). We particularly stress the use of language games and of communicative exercises through which grammar and structure can be effectively learnt.
