Methodology & Course Levels

CIAL's teaching approach can be described as eclectic, as it combines various approaches and methodologies in structured lessons with clear aims, with a focus on language for communication.
All skills - listening, speaking, reading and writing - develop naturally with gradual learning of grammar, lexical and phonetic concepts through practice.

The teacher is a facilitator in the teaching-learning process.

Course levels are linked to the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), and learning outcomes for each course are expressed in can-do statements.

The six levels are:
A1-Beginner, A2-Elementary, B1-Threshold, B2-Vantage, C1-Autonomy, C2-Mastery
