Teaching method

Our principles for teaching the English Language are based on the flexibility to adapt to different needs and expectations of our students. Our philosophy is to teach in a professional, engaging, dynamic and fun way.
Our teaching methodology is guided by the Communicative Approach, which means we offer the students the best learning conditions to use the language as a real tool for communication and interaction. Learners will be actively involved in a dynamic way, immersed in the language in a multicultural environment, which stimulates them to learn and make them aware of the cultural diversity and different accents encompassed by English as an International Language.
Hence, role playing and real interaction are the cores of our methodology. Students will learn inside and outside the classroom and use the language to describe their real life experiences. Departing from that, classes will focus on the four language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. We also offer grammar lessons in order to enhance a more solid learning. Another focus of the Methodology of MEC English is to make students overcome the inhibition that can be generated by learning a foreign language. By following such principles, we have observed and demonstrated a significant improvement on the students’ level of the language, and this is our main goal.
The course is integrated with experiences outside the school, from which students enrich their learning by engaging in different activities and going on tours, where they can be surrounded by nature or go to main cities to discover the Italian art and culture.
Above all that, students will live the fantastic experience of sharing unforgettable moments with people from different parts of the world and discover that learning can be a great adventure.
