Yes! We arrange lively events with cultural themes, from restaurant trips to wine tasting, parties and film nights. We are also planning field trips to Europe and Asia in the near future. We suggest that our clients encourage and support one another in the language learning process.
No one is denying that there are many competent non-native teachers around. We prefer native speakers because we believe that learning a language is a cultural experience, and to really understand the culture of the country in the most authentic way, you benefit most from contact with native speakers.
Most teachers use a variety of methods as they help you to learn. Euroasia has its course outcomes which teachers are expected to achieve, but we also recognise that different teachers work most effectively in different ways, and so we do not insist on one formal method over another.
That said, teachers do all follow certain basic principles. We expect a lot of emphasis to be placed on listening to authentic language and learning to cope first of all with everyday situations. Especially at lower levels, we try not to introduce too many difficult grammatical points.
A unique feature of Euroasia courses is that we have a maximum of 10 students per class, who are seated in a horseshoe formation facing each other. We do not believe the standard classroom approach of having 30 students facing a lecturer droning on about grammar is conducive to language learning.
This approach allows our teachers to use the target language as much as possible, and have a variety of active and lively exercises to practise new material. Students are encouraged to take an active part in lessons (which won't happen if the class is too big). We also encourage students to do some additional work between lessons. And last but not least, all our teachers create an environment in which language learning is an enjoyable social experience.
Contact us and one of our language experts will be able to quickly determine your level. We can also arrange for you to speak with the teacher. Our needs test might also be useful. The results of the level test will give you a pretty good idea which level is right for you. Ultimately, you choose which level is right for you, but remember you are welcome to call and discuss the issue with us.
Our courses are available in 6 levels. The learning outcomes at each level are clearly defined. However, some of our clients have been with us for more than 6 levels, and continue to maintain their language skills in an advanced conversational practice class.
If you want to make a real commitment to language learning, and save money: enrol for our 4-course Gold Package. This takes you from beginner level up to a point where you can expect to get by in a wide range of everyday situations.
If we do not have a particular language or level to suit you, why not take a one-to-one class, or come and see us with a friend who would like to study with you? Our arrangements for private tuition are very flexible.
The most popular European languages are French, German, Spanish and Italian. Sometimes we also have classes running in Dutch, Portuguese and Russian. The most popular Asian languages are Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
