The school is detached from the Home-Stay house, but only three steps away through the garden, from the recreational area, into the main classroom. The main classroom accommodates up to 6 students very comfortably. There is a whiteboard, chairs, and desks, of course. There is plenty of natural light due to the windows and doors on every side of the classroom. The main door faces the garden in which students can go out for a short break in between English language sessions. THE TEACHING QUALITY: During the English language lesson there will be writing, reading, speaking and listening practice, but the emphases will be mainly on speaking the language. Tuition is carried out vividly and extra care is given to slow learners, by maintaining a relaxed pace and an understanding attitude towards each student. Fun learning is very important, therefore lessons are kept active and enjoyable through various interactive tasks to help improve their spoken English. There are outside activities in connection to the lessons as well. Tuition may be one-to-one or in twos, threes or groups of 4 or 6 at very the most. In this case, there are teachers assistants who can take over - this will be even more interesting for the students to get to know other new English tutors and practice their English with them. There will be an end-of-course test and a certificate will be given to each student.
