Our ‘communicative method’ to teaching languages involves students in participation and personalisation of input and skills development.
This approach prioritises;
- individual attention and planning for attainment
- enables teachers to adapt to student needs and to tailor delivery and practice opportunities.
Assessment is 'progressive' with an emphasis on using continuous assessment to generate learning. We are also a leader at LSE in the use of learning technology.
