• ENGLISH & YOU   Adult Courses

Learning English naturally

Would you like to feel more confident when you are speaking English ?
After years of learning English, do you still panic when you hear the familiar question ‘Do you speak English’ ?
Perhaps you already know many words and structures, but you’d like some extra practice to become more fluent ?
But how can we actually learn English effectively ?

“ Do you know what a foreign accent is ? It’s a sign of bravery. “

( Amy Chua, Professor at Yale University )

Learning English just as effortlessly as your mother tongue

Speaking, speaking and speaking !

With the natural method* speaking English comes naturally. It is the most effective way of learning a language that never fails. There is no secret to it, it’s enough to look at the way children learn their mother tongue. The idea is the same: immersing ourselves in the world of English language. The focus is on being surrounded and immersed in the language.

Speaking a foreign language can be quite scary, however, it is the most important step in becoming fluent and proficient. It requires regular and systematic practice. This is exactly why the English & YOU method is based on 65% active speaking and listening to native speakers, while only 35% is spent on grammar practice.

We don’t study the language or memorize lists of words and rules to be able to perfectly ace a test. This is not to say that grammar is not important. It is an essential building block and without it we can’t get far. But grammar alone doesn’t get us far either! So we incorporate grammar to support the knowledge with a correct and strong foundation. 

Therefore, we listen to podcasts, interviews, videos, music in English to interialise the accent and vocabulary, read articles, stories and then we speak, speak and speak so more.

* The Natural Approach is a language learning theory developed by linguist and researcher Drs. Stephen Krashen and Tracy Terrell in the 1970s.

I’ve been taking English classes with Ashley for a few months in order to train before taking one of the Cambridge University exams. I particularly appreciate her availability, her pedagogy, our exchanges and "homework" according to my level and the progress to be made. Ashley is able to provide clear and effective explanations of areas of concern. I am very happy to have met her and to take her English classes because she really helps me to project myself towards my goal.
