Types of Classes
Group classes are organized as standard, mini and micro classes in the Centre for foreign languages ELA.
Standard group classes are organized as groups of 4 to 8 students, two times a week in time intervals of 1 or 1,5 hours; students are grouped according to their age and language competence level.
Mini and micro groups are intended for 3 or 2 students, with the schedule suited to their needs.
Individual classes are tailored to suit the students’ needs, providing greater freedom in scheduling classes, in the pace of learning and in preparing for their specific needs (passive knowledge activation, conversation, preparation for exams at an academic level, job interviews, professional terminology, going abroad, getting better grades at school etc.)
Language courses we offer
English, german, italian, french, russian, portuguese, and serbian.
The courses have been classified according to the European international language standards (The Common European Framework for Languages CEFR) into the following levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2. According to the CEFR, A levels refer to basic, B levels refer to intermediate, and C levels refer to proficient language knowledge.
Apart from the standard classification, in some languages there are sublevels that provide higher quality of preparation and access to higher levels. In English language, B1+ has been introduced as an in-between stage between PET and FCE preparation. German has been classified into sublevels due to the complexity of the language (A1.1, A1.2, A2.1, A2.2 etc.). The courses in Russian language and in Serbian for foreigners have been classified into beginner, intermediate and advanced level.
Working in a relaxed atmosphere in modern classrooms, with competent, experienced and dedicated teachers, we offer highest quality programmes in foreign language learning.
The programmes follow common European frameworks for languages and implement the methodology that suits age, need, knowledge level and interests. All the courses are organized with the goal of developing language competences: reading, writing, listening and speaking. Each level requires a specific number of hours for acquiring the new knowledge and the necessary level. The courses are in line with the international programmes developed by international publishing houses and exam centres and are accompanied by additional materials that are adapted to the needs and the levels.
The programme and classes for children are dynamic, active and filled with creative content that will develop attention, focus, memory, language skills, socialization and motor skills.
The programme for young adults is organized through dynamic classes that develop language competences, social skills, critical awareness and creative thinking. A modern approach to language learning includes not only exam preparation (Cambridge, Goethe, TOEFL, IELTS, CELI/CILS, DELF) and learning grammar, vocabulary, listening, reading, writing and speaking, but also debates on various age-related topics, film evenings followed by discussions and analyses, board games that develop tactics and communication skills, literary contests etc.
Adult courses are designed for learners to focus on professional language required for working in business environment, on preparation for academic exams, job interviews and interviews for permissions and visas, and on taking language competence exams for immigration or working abroad. All this is achieved with experienced teachers and engaging didactic material that help in acquiring language from elementary to advanced levels.
ELA team consists of highly experienced teachers who will provide you with the best knowledge using efficient approach and most effective ways to learn a language.
