    • Made-to-measure for participants to improve their communication skills in any language or to maintain their language level for oral examinations.

      Our methodology is applied to this training, giving priority to developing fluency and grammatical correctness when speaking to each participant. Likewise, students will improve their listening capacity and their pronunciation skills, as well as improving confidence in any communication situation in public or in official selection examinations/tests.

      PROGRAMME: E It is a programme based on the “capital virtues” for success in learning, maintenance and progress in a language: constancy and follow-up, focussed on specific tasks.

      These are weekly tutored sessions, tailored to the participant’s requirements in two ways:

      • With a tutor for the time agreed upon: FLEXIBILITY from 15 to 50 minutes per session.
      • Personal homework that is sent in and for which feedback is given.

    • Because training should always mean moving forward and opening up new horizons: INNOVATIVE TEACHING ACTIONS

      Correct language teaching and learning from the communication point of view can only occur if all the different plans or dimensions in play in any learning experience are taken into account, where students not only come into contact with a different language, but also with a new way of understanding the world, work and qualifications (CAMBRIDGE, TRINITY GESE & ISE, IELTS, TOEFL, DALF, DELF, ZERTIFIKATS and EOI,).

      Basing ourselves on the MCER, we want to help any student to assert themselves on this point and back up the course scheme on multi-lingualism and on a broader, more comprehensive analysis of the skills that are essential in the strictly linguistic field.

      This extended view includes three important areas to be taken into account:

      • Students as social agents, who must know the elements that make up the language system and be able to perform in normal communication situations that occur whilst interacting with other people.
      • Students as intercultural speakers, who can identify the relevant aspects of the new cultures they meet through English and establish bridges between the original culture and the cultures of other countries.
      • Students as self-sufficient learners, who must gradually become responsible for their own learning process, with sufficient autonomy to continue moving forward in their knowledge and qualification in a language, in a process that can be extended throughout the student’s lifetime.
    • At Lynx Idiomas we design language communication courses aimed at topics inspired by specific situations and by real environments, where those learning a language have to carry out their activities and tasks.
