Lessons are bespoke and tailor-made to the needs of the client. The framework for these lessons follow an integrated skills approach with the CEFR ‘can do’ statements reflected in the lesson aims. Our trainers use language immersion and the communicative approach to ensure that exposure to the language is maximised and a true-to-life environment is created. The emphasis is on inductive learning and the discovery of language through clear contexts and concept checking.
Cactus language training methodology follows an ‘Active Learning’ and ‘Communicative Learning’ approach. Students are to be engaged in the target language, and the relevance of that language outside the classroom is clear. All lesson aims and outcomes are related to authentic and practical use of the language in real-life contexts.
