OUR MISSION AND OUR PHILOSOPHY
Our mission is to promote cultural exchange and communication between nations the world over. By learning English and French and relevant history and culture, a new horizon opens up for students as they prepare to find their place in the global village.
Our philosophy is based on a new trend in learning, which implies that languages are best taught naturally, by native speakers, or by language teachers who have adopted the studied language as their first language.
Our highly qualified teachers are mostly from Canada, USA, United Kingdom and Australia, where they are selected and recommended to us, not just for their professional profile assessment, but also for their genuine personal characteristics.
OUR TEACHING SYSTEM
Our language programs are based on The System of Three Synergetic Competencies, established by the Canadian Ministry of Education. This globally recognized and unique system has been used in Canada for decades. It has been designed specifically to teach English and French to speakers of other languages, to prepare them for the western job market and to accompany them in their continuing education. Over the years, this program has proven that is possible to achieve a competent level of communication in the chosen language after only 5 months of intensive study.
Our students will learn all aspects of their chosen language of study, from grammar, or the base of the language, to oral and written expression, always with a strong focus on oral communication. Our teachers teach small groups of 4 - 12 students.
We prepare our students for the Real World, especially for studies at foreign schools and for employment, which requires them to be fluent in English or French. After completing the whole program and the final exam, our students will receive a graduate diploma: Certificate of Proficiency in English or French.
Our teaching method and program is accredited by the Slovak Ministry of Education.
