Our dishes of the day or what to expect in our lessons.

Let's cut the preamble and dive right in.

Every lesson, starting from the get-go, is structured to cover all bases of language learning. We put emphasis on different aspects during class and in homework assignments. Homework is a key part of the learning process.

Here's how a typical lesson goes down:

  • We kick things off with a Warm-Up - and it's not just your usual "How are you?" or "How's it going?" This warm-up can serve various purposes, but it's always engaging and interactive. It gets you involved, lets you brush up on what you've learned, introduces new concepts in a fun and easy manner, and overall, it's a blast, all in English.
  • Next up, we transition to the main topic of the lesson. If you're already pretty advanced, we tackle complex and interesting topics for discussion, without dwelling too much on grammar specifics. But if you're more of a beginner or intermediate learner, we cover comprehensive topics. Grammar is always tied to the conversational topics – it's how we roll to keep things effective and interesting.

One of our main teaching principles is this: we learn and reinforce grammar through conversational exercises, using real-life examples, and more.

  • When we get into the main part of the lesson, it's all about learning new stuff, applying it in various activities – discussions, Q&A sessions, different conversational tasks, listening to audio, watching videos, you name it. It's impossible to list all the tasks here because conversational tasks are pretty diverse. Only our teachers know exactly how to tailor them to help you learn effectively.

Each person is unique, and so are our teaching methods.

  • In class, you'll be exposed to a lot of English videos and audio – it's crucial for language learning. You'll learn to rephrase sentences to better understand English sentence structure (which is quite different from Ukrainian), and you'll start speaking more fluently, even at the elementary level.

Your English level and your speaking speed are two different things. Speedy speech, just like reading speed, needs practice.

  • No two lessons are alike. We mix it up with different topics, exercises, and approaches from your teacher to keep things fresh and effective.
  • You'll get homework after each lesson (unless otherwise specified), and your progress there will be a big part of the next lesson. Every word, phrase, and structure you learn will come in handy.

Repetition is key to long-term memory retention.

  • The materials you study in homework will get a thorough review in class – we don't forget.
  • And here's what you won't find in our lessons: dull texts, tedious grammar explanations, repetitive grammar exercises, long readings, or constant word-for-word translation.

That's the lowdown on our lessons. But the real learning happens in class, not on a blog.
