Our Teaching Concept
Our aim is to improve your language skills – and to minimise your inhibitions when using the language. Groups for each course consist of a maximum of 15 students, so that the teachers can monitor the progress of every student carefully. The teachers will support you in taking part actively in the lessons – as you can only really improve by participating and speaking in class.
To make sure you are in the correct level, we will give you a test, which will help us to place you in a group of students who have approximately the same level as you. The group allocation is only done on the basis of your level, not on the basis of your age, education, nationality or who wants to be with whom for the course. Whenever possible you will be in a group with international students.
Come and join us - make new friends whilst improving your English!
„I have been an English teacher at Europa for over 2 years now and have worked with students from almost every country in the world! I really love seeing how different cultures interact and enjoy the friendships that are made outside the classroom over a competitive table football game almost as much as the lively chats and debates we can have in the classroom. I enjoy seeing students’ progress throughout their time with us in all areas of their language“
All courses consist of listening and reading comprehension, as well as grammar and conversation. Usually, you will be taught by more than one teacher per day, who will use different methods to teach the language.
Some lessons focus on topics which reflect life in the course location, as we think that the cultural aspects are just as important as the linguistic ones. They also focus on your daily life and your future. Another important aspect is intercultural learning; the understanding of different cultures, which you will get by working and learning with students from other countries.
Our concept is based on the assumption that learning works best when many senses are used during the learning process. We try to integrate discussions, role plays, presentations, group work and so on. You will receive all the learning materials in the course centre. We also use online material (videos, websites, podcasts, blogs, etc.) and show you which of these you can best use for independent learning.
