Private Power (3)

Whether you have to take an exam for your studies, to enter a foreign university, for work or you own motivation and satisfaction we offer a wide range of course for the variety of exams. We focus exclusively on the Cambridge exams (KET, PET, FCE, CAE, CPE, BEC), IELTS and TOEFL.

Cambridge Exams - General English (PET, FCE, CAE, CPE)
The most common exam taken by our students is the Cambridge First Certificate examination (FCE), which is an upper-intermediate level exam and tests the four basic skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing.
The CAE (Certificate in Advanced English) and CPE (Certificate of Proficiency in English) are for advanced levels and the PET (Preliminary English Test) is an intermediate level exam. Although these exams test the four basic skills, there is still a strong emphasis on conversation in the classes.

Business English Exams (BEC)
As well as our regular Business courses we also prepare for the BEC exams. These are a suite of Cambridge business exams which are designed to test English language ability used in the context of business.

IELTS (International English Language Testing System)
The IELTS Exam is a standardised test that can be taken by students of varying ability. It is useful for students when applying for jobs or for English speaking universities/colleges.
Whether you are learning English for pleasure, for self-improvement or to pass an exam our methods focus on you, the student.

Before starting any course we first of all carefully evaluation your level of English. You can take the first step by completing our on-line test. Depending on your level we may also ask you to take a written and oral test.

We then conduct a one to one interview where you can explain your needs, your wants and areas of interest, any lacks which you are aware of, your time constrains, be it work, university, exam dates or up and coming travel and also very important — your budget.

Combining your test results with your needs we design a tailor made course to meet your objectives within an agreed time frame.
Method 1 — Face to Face teaching

We believe this is the most effective teaching method. When student and teacher are face to face you have much stronger communication, which goes beyond the spoken word. The better the communication, the greater the involvement and commitment of the students thus leading to better results. In this situation the teacher also acts a language coach encouraging and motivating students. Courses can follow a specific course books, or if your level and needs require, pursue a more varied and personalised course. Whatever the level or course, in addition to the face to faced sessions, we advocate the importance of students exploring and discovering the English language for themselves through reading and other activities.
Method 2 — Real Time Teaching

The advent of the Internet, and moreover the increased access to cheap phone and video calls, has permitted us to offer courses where the teacher and student don't have to be physically present together. The advantages mean that there is much greater flexibility in the timetable, the student and/or the teacher can be anywhere in the world as long as they have Internet access. Whole courses can be conducted using this method but students require at least Intermediate English to communicate successfully through this medium. We have, however, found that Real Time Teaching is great supplement to the traditional Face to Face method. If for example you need to travel a lot for work, this is a fantastic method to continue your course until you have the opportunity to have your next Face to Face lesson.
Method 3 — On-line Training

If you particularly enjoy studying grammar or need to revise certain grammatical points then the perfect teaching solution is our on-line training method. We have created three distinct grammar levels, basic, intermediate and advanced. Each grammar point begins with a details explanation. There are test exercises for you to print out. When you have finished studying you can take a grammar point verification test. Your scores are recorded in your personal account, so you can build up a history of your progress. If necessary we can devise personal study plans for you to follow. Contact us for more details.
Method 4 — Integrated Teaching

Integrated Teaching is as the name suggests is an integration of all three teaching methods.
Whether you are studying English for work, university, school or for you own personal development we offer courses of the highest standard to help you reach your goals.

We only employ highly motivated well educated teachers who come from recognised English speaking countries thus ensuring the quality of the courses. In addition all courses are specifically designed to suit the individual needs of you the student. You can choose individual, group or class courses.
