What happens in the free trial English class?
You can get a free trial for face to face classes at your company. We will have already spoken about what you want to get out of an English language course. During your free trial the teacher will give you an idea of what we can do, and try out various communicative activities to suit your requirements. Have a look at a typical example:
- Client: 4 star hotel in London
- Students: Group of 10 employees: housekeepers and kitchen staff
- Level: Pre-intermediate (they can hold a very simple conversation)
- Needs: Improve spoken general English and spoken hospitality English
- Location: Training room at the hotel
Intro to the free trial class
The teacher starts with a communicative ice breaker to gauge the level of the group, get everyone comfortable and get their English language flowing.
Focus on communication
Next, a role play where staff act out common conversations with hotel guests. The guests ask for various items in the hotel or ask for help.
The teacher elicits and feeds in useful structures
A fundamental structure: Do/Does to ask questions. Teacher presents the grammar in an fun and interactive way
…and then staff practise it
Employees then formulate and ask each other questions that they have thought of themselves.
“What do you do at the weekends?”
“Do you prefer to cook, or eat out?”
The teacher elicits and feeds in useful vocabulary – descriptions of people
Blonde · tall · slim
Friendly · professional · organised
Hardworking · patient · relaxed
… then do another communicative activity where they use the language
“What’s your manager like?”
“She’s a brunette, she’s patient and hardworking”.
