Education Methodology

Embark on a transformative linguistic journey with our comprehensive General English courses.

Four different English language skills are taught in conjunction with each other, using various applications and activities. For instance, the aim is for students to comprehend a listening or reading text and then express their understanding through speaking or writing.

An immersive and natural learning environment is created to encourage exploration and practical application, rather than relying on rote memorization of grammatical rules.

"Learning to learn" is a dynamic process. Some individuals may find it easier and more comfortable to learn through writing, while others may benefit from visualizing or listening to information. In order to promote effective learning in a multiple intelligence environment, it is essential to identify one's own learning style and apply the most suitable learning methods accordingly.

Consequently, each newly acquired piece of information remains in the mind, and learning English contributes to a lifelong learning process that can be applied in all areas of life.

During this period, the teacher acts as a guide who designs the learning environment, imparts knowledge, facilitates learning, and supports students in their journey.

Who Can Join, Registration Process, Course Fee

Most of the people need an atmosphere or environment where they can speak English effectively without feeling shy or being afraid of making mistakes.

That’s why our classes are formed according to the levels of our students.

Anyone who wants to learn and improve their English Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing skills in conjunction with each other in a practical way, can join our General English groups.

Students who complete the placement test and oral assessment stages are placed in appropriate programs according to the assessment terms of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

The student is required to complete the General English Placement Test and then get an appointment for the English oral assessment stage which is conducted by the Academic Department specialist.

In the student’s placement in a group, English Speaking skills play a major role.

Our Academic Department specialist will call you by phone on the day and time of your choice for the appointment to evaluate your English oral skills and inform you in detail about your enquiries and all our current programs suitable for your English level.

A fee is charged for any scheduled interview with the Academic Department specialist for oral assessments, needs analysis, academic orientation and/or further information about the course content and coursework. This fee is deducted from the total course fee when registered to the course.

For students who have not taken the Placement Exam and have not completed the English oral assessment stage, direct registration cannot be performed.

You can access the online placement test by clicking on the link: TAA ONLINE PLACEMENT TEST
