Blended learning method

Our multimedia learning resources enable students to immerse themselves in the English language.

Using a range of audio-visual materials, students can revise the stories and dialogues used in class whenever and wherever they want. Students can then record themselves speaking in English and listen back to assess their pronunciation. This is an ideal way for students to practice listening and reading outside of the classroom.
