Description

Learning Spoken English in India is a course for anyone seeking to improve their language skills, from beginners to those simply wanting to increase their speaking speed and vocabulary. Students will learn spoken grammar, which can differ from written grammar, proper pronunciation, and an increased vocabulary tailored to each students’ needs. Rather than memorising a vocabulary list, this course helps students broaden their speaking skills by introducing phrases and words through conversation. This is proven to be the most effective and best method to learn spoken English.

Ms. Vardaranjan helps her students grow their English conversation skills, meeting them at their knowledge level and style of learning. Through one-on-one lessons and practice with a fluent teacher, students are able to relax and become comfortable speaking English at their own pace. In addition to learning the basics, students benefit from practising sentence structure, speaking aloud, and speaking spontaneously in conversations with the teacher. At the successful completion of this course, students can expect to express themselves in English with more speed and accuracy and communicate with more ease and confidence. Students signing up for this course should have some basic knowledge of the English language through reading, writing, or speaking.

The ipassio Edge

Long term courses deal with creating a strong foundation on a specific topic. The syllabus of a Long term course is predefined and ready before the commencement of the course. This gives students an understanding of the knowledge they will gain in the stipulated period of time, helping them in their planning and decision making. The persistent support from teachers enables the student to accomplish and achieve the desired result or outcome within the given time frame. The class strength for Long term courses is limited to 3, ensuring that each student gets attention. A set of 3 individuals enrolling for a short term course encourages learning from peers and social interaction. This long term course bodes good for students passionate about learning, setting them up for the long-term or advanced level of learning.
