Our method of teaching English as a foreign language

Here at the American Center, our highest priority is your progress in English. We are aware that learning English and mastering a language can be one of the biggest challenges in life. Many people have a fear of incorrect speech in front of others, which in turn disables even the simplest expression. The first goal of our English course is to make you feel comfortable when you speak. All the prejudices of others remain outside our center. Fear can be your number one enemy, it can block your thoughts and thus prevent you from progressing. We want to ensure your comfort and free expression in the presence of others and in an environment that is relaxed, fun and active.

It is said that the best things in life are the simplest ones. This is how we would like to describe our English grammar lectures as well. In our English course you will get complete explanations of difficult parts of English grammar from a perspective you may have never experienced before. Our English instructors at the American Center like to simplify topics using diagrams and other visual elements. After our English course you will have a different insight into these difficult topics, and our dedicated insistence on your understanding does not stop until you succeed.

Learning English at the American Center gives you the opportunity to use English in the classroom and, more importantly, outside of it. In this center we use many activities and resources that you can use at home or wherever you are. Additionally, we like to use technology in teaching. In our English course you will have access to lessons through powerpoint presentations that you can watch again at home, as well as our system of electronically corrected homework which, in addition to corrections, also contains error comments.

You will find all the content and additional materials from our English course available at home and in our LMS (Online Learning Management System)! You will find yourself working harder and harder, making English a part of your daily routine effortlessly! We want you to succeed and you will succeed at the American Center!

All our English courses follow the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages ​​(CEFR).
