Certificates and Diplomas
Students need to write an assessment test before their arrival. This can be done online. On their first day at school they will be assessed orally, too. Should the student wish to receive a certificate upon course completion, they will need to write a final test.
The teaching materials at LTC are designed for interactive multilingual classes. They are comprised of motivating topics and clearly focused tasks combined with a real understanding of what works in the classroom. All the material is designed to maximize the students speaking experience and to guide the students to use the language skills appropriately and effectively and by consolidating the focal grammar point. All the materials that we use are designed according to the international standards of the CEF (Common European Framework) which guarantees modern training and the best possible quality.
All our teachers are CELTA/TESOL/TEFL certificate qualified which means we ensure quality teaching methodology.
We pay special attention to students' personal needs and requirements as there are a maximum of 8 students per class.
We cover all aspects of language learning i.e. reading, writing, listening, speaking, vocabulary and grammar together to improve English skills across all areas.
