Course Modules

EiA GO!

This active course is for students who have been learning English for over a year and who want to develop their skills further through the completion of short tasks and challenges.

It is also possible to select an individual module to go with your classic general English course. Due to the style of the modules, your choice could fill the Tailored Content sessions or replace the regular project. You could also select one of the video modules to do instead of the regular show if it is not possible to have family members and students gather for an End-of-Week Show.


WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

This is an ideal course for learners who are ready to engage in activities that provide them with the stimulus and opportunity to activate their language in real world scenarios. While this course can work well with mixed level learners, it is also very suitable for streamed learners. The course focuses on use of language in collaborative exchanges such as giving presentations, giving direction and rules and telling stories. The course allows learners to use English in a range of styles and contexts developing their pronunciation, spoken fluency, accuracy and confidence.
