Learning English through doing

Learning English through doing

Some people learn through watching, others through listening, but we believe that the best way to learn something new is to try it!

The current theory of language teaching relies heavily on the ideas of ‘communicative purpose’ and ‘authenticity’. Teachers go to great lengths to create these conditions in the classroom, but at XUK English we have them in abundance.

Morning lessons provide exposure to new language and time for reflection on it, whilst afternoon activities create the perfect conditions for practice. Asking what’s for lunch is excellent practice for low-level learners to try out their vocabulary, whilst stronger students can get creative and collaborate on writing songs for the talent show.

All of this practice helps build what is possibly the most important factor of success in learning another language – confidence. If you don’t try, you never succeed, and at XUK English it’s all about trying something new.
