The Quatorial programme - four participants per group - is designed not only to help develop language accuracy but also to allow the participant to overcome inhibitions and to use the language eloquently in all situations.
Learners are exposed to a number of different training situations throughout the day. These mirror the real world and enable the practice of different skills.
The different areas of Quatorial training which deliver effective results:
controlled practice in language structures and lexis development with constant support and feeback to achieve a good command of grammatical structures, idioms, and vocabulary
drills to sharpen understanding of written text through reading a wide range of materials - reports, articles and studies
coaching and practice in letter, report, email, presentation and article-writing
formal listening exercises
The Quatorial Project - working on an engaging problem-solving task. Self-awareness is enhanced through the use of video playback, reflection on interpersonal interactions and overall project outcomes.
Plenary Session - a News Review to practise formal presentation.
