The A_BEST trainers
The A_BEST trainers are renowned for their excellent academic studies and for their enthusiasm. They have all graduated from faculties related to this field and have extensive experience in teaching foreign languages to companies. With ample studies in the language field (masters, doctoral programs, advanced training courses, etc.), most of them are part of academic institutions.
TEACHING METHOD USED: CLT (Communicative Language Teaching)
In teaching foreign languages to adults, the communicative approach is used in order to help develop the trainees’ abilities to successfully use the knowledge accumulated during the course in various social contexts, both formal and informal. A lot of emphasis is placed on improving the students’ fluency in communication exercises such as: discussions, debates, language games, role plays, etc. The teaching materials used have the purpose of supporting the interactive nature of the lessons, the target language being assimilated in context. Interactivity is encouraged, with the trainer playing the role of facilitator of the learning activities.
