Pay for General English & get Intensive English
Are you still wondering where to go this autumn/winter 2019? Why not book a course at Gateway School of English and benefit from 20% off the GSE school residence accommodation and our amazing offer which allows you to pay for just 20 lessons per week and get 30?
With 30 lessons a week you get the opportunity to balance out a variation of LANGUAGE SYSTEMS (vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation) and LANGUAGE SKILLS (reading, writing, listening, speaking) in the morning during General English, with a more focused approach to speaking in the afternoon during Conversation classes.
These FREE extra lessons in the afternoon are definitely worth taking as they give students the push they need to let go of their inhibitions when it comes to speaking and get more comfortable using English. Increased confidence results in improved fluency which makes speakers’ language sound more natural and native-like.
Moreover, having the possibility to practise different types of language functions like asking questions, giving advice, clarifying instructions the teacher gives you or something another student has said, expressing an opinion etc., allows the teacher to give you more individual attention and to better understand your specific language needs. This, in turn, will help him/her plan more personalised lessons based on the language strengths and weaknesses that emerge throughout the lessons, targeting students’ major areas for improvement. It is also an opportunity to:
– practise your PRONUNCIATION and work on any recurring errors you may have which keep coming up when you speak;
– practise the skill of LISTENING – both to the spontaneous language of your classmates and any audio material prepared by the teacher such as videos and podcasts;
– take advantage of SMALLER GROUP SIZE and engage in PEER CORRECTION which means that you train yourself to pay attention to how others are using language, like how they sound when they speak, what vocabulary phrases and expressions they use, the grammatical structure of their sentences etc.
Noticing examples of others’ good use of language and their mistakes helps you learn and pay more attention to your own output. Learning from each other is what an experience like this is all about and can also help you in the long term by equipping you with a better sense of self-correction.
Ready to take your English to the next level? Then look no further, this offer has got you covered and is valid all through November, December, January and February, no matter the course duration you choose.
And remember GSE also offers residence accommodation on B&B basis, breakfast included, right next to school and weekly prices for accommodation are 20% DISCOUNTED from November until February!
