Helping you to improve your skills
American English Tutoring Center offers a variety of language services suited specifically to an individual’s needs. Whereas many language courses focus primarily on speech, AETC maintains the belief that fluency requires skills in speech, listening comprehension, reading and writing. Lessons will culminate in the learner improving in all four areas of language development. For those learners who wish to focus more attention on writing, rather than speaking, the lessons are both in person and online. Learners who are at the beginning level in their studies in English have the option of group lessons with others at the same level or private lessons.
One-on-One Lessons: These lessons consist of oral instruction taught directly in the target language. An oral assessment will be given to determine the learner’s language level and grammatical skills. Topics will focus on a survey of questions related to a learner’s interests and needs, work-related or personal, and daily-related activities. Grammar instruction will directly relate to the learner’s language level. Learners may opt to focus more attention on one specific need, if desired. The more proficient a language learner becomes in the English language, the more important it is to personalize the lessons to the learner’s skill level. Hence, most lessons are one-on-one.
Group Instruction: Currently, group courses are scheduled as the needs and opportunities arise. If your company is interested in scheduling group classes, the courses can be brought to you at your company’s office. We will bring the classroom to you in The Hague, Rotterdam, and Leiden.
On-line Course Instruction: Courses are provided through a variety of venues, depending on the scope and needs of the learner(s). Students in on-line courses must have internet services and computer capabilities with cameras, speakers, and microphones. Learners will regularly submit written texts in Microsoft Word documents for review to be edited and returned for further revision. On-line courses can be conducted one-on-one or in groups of similar levels of language learning, when appropriate.
