Classroom methodologies


Our class methodology is mainly based on the action-oriented communicative approach or also called task-oriented communicative approach, which means that the classes are predominantly communicative, cooperative and very dynamic.

Methodological principles:

iconCheckBoxTeaching must be centered on the learner and his or her interests without forgetting the teacher's motivation.
iconCheckBoxThe student is a participant at all times in their learning and evolution.
iconCheckBoxThe instrument of communication in the classroom is the target language itself.
iconCheckBoxThe student will be given the opportunity to say what he/she wants to say and choose how to say it.
iconCheckBoxThe five skills (listening comprehension, oral expression, reading comprehension, written expression and audiovisual comprehension) are addressed from the beginning and are treated in an integrated manner throughout the process, with special emphasis on the oral skills at the beginning but insisting on the harmonious development of all of them.
iconCheckBoxThe teacher becomes a resource guide and learning facilitator who presents the language tasks or activities.
iconCheckBoxLanguage activities are those that enable the authentic and meaningful use of language by the learner.

Language activities should:

iconCheckBoxBe meaningful activities.
iconCheckBoxArouse the student's interest.
iconCheckBoxMake sense.
iconCheckBoxGive pleasure to the experience of knowledge.
iconCheckBoxInvite them to actively participate in teaching and learning.
iconCheckBoxConstruct knowledge in collaboration with others.
