Communicative Teaching Approach

Our dynamic and communicative teaching approach ensures that every student, even a complete beginner, takes an active part in the lessons, and is given ample opportunity to practise their language skills.

With HKIL, your lessons will be interactive, enjoyable and effective.

In all our classes, we….

  • use the target language as much as possible ~ to encourage you to interact with your teacher and/or your classmates in the language;
  • provide you with plenty of guided practice and production opportunities ~ to encourage you to participate actively in class and make an immediate use of the new skills you have just learnt;
  • use specifically designed lesson plans with relevant vocabulary, language functions and grammar integrated into the language objectives for each class ~ so that you always learn new practical language that you can put to immediate use;
  • use a variety of audio-visual aids / authentic documents ~ to train you to communicate with confidence outside of the classroom setting and familiarise yourself with real-life situations;
  • offer a friendly and supportive learning environment ~ so that you feel more relaxed and confident in building up your language skills;
  • provide you with regular reviews and feedback on your progress ~ so that you always know where you stand;
  • limit the number of students per class to 7 ~ to guarantee as much quality time and individual attention from your teacher as possible;
  • employ professional and experienced native speaking teachers only.
