ESE Methodology places you at the heart of your learningWhile being an ESE learner of English, you are an active participant in your learning process. For this purpose, our courses are student-centred and are specifically designed to equip you with the linguistic tools necessary for you to develop your skills holistically. This means that you develop all your core language skills equally: listening, speaking, reading and writing. In order to maximise your learning opportunities, you are exposed to language in use in natural and authentic contexts and likewise given activities with real communicative value to carry out in small groups or pairs. Moreover, this and personalised feedback, remedial and further practice opportunities by our qualified and experienced teachers, are henceforth part of the key to your success.
