The key idea behind the entire Web system is our teaching of language as a skill. To do this Web uses world-class proven multimedia courseware and combines this with highly qualified foreign teachers to provide the students with a complete learning environment. The student has the best of both worlds with detailed computer work being complemented with a natural English environment, with teachers from many different English-speaking countries.
Our centers are open from 9am to 9pm every day of the working week ?C and 9am to 7pm at the weekends - providing our students incredible flexibility and allowing them to set the schedule for their English learning.
At Web International we have a number of very structured learning programs, tailored to help every kind of student. There are 8 levels in total, ranging from the two absolute beginner levels (Ice-Breaker & Threshold) to Beginner, Lower Intermediate, and Intermediate and finally of course up to Advanced. Web also offers two Business English courses that are specifically designed for English in the workplace, and covers in great detail everything that a businessman or woman needs to know in today’s marketplace.
Students are helped to find the right program for them by Web’s course consultants, who are trained to provide the students with the right advice and can place students in the appropriate level using a very advanced placement test.
The courseware content is based on sound, research-based principles. The focus is on the key concepts of language and the precisely structured approach offers a comprehensive system to help students make progress. Not only that but clear, identifiable and above all, rapid, progress.
Using state of the art video, speech recognition and interactive courseware the different programs provide an excellent learning tool for students. The technology also allows Web to track each student’s work exactly and monitor their progress. Highly trained tutors look after the students and make sure that their learning experience is smooth and beneficial.
But the Web International system is not just about the technology. We also have professional ESL teachers working with the students, in both Private Classes and Salon Classes. We are committed to small class sizes, to ensure that all students get the attention they need, so the maximum number of students in Private Classes is limited to 4. In the larger salon classes, where the focus is more on group work and discussion, the maximum class size is 10.
Private classes follow an extremely detailed schedule and are designed to complement the work the students have done on the computer, enabling the student to master and make automatic all the English material they have learnt. In addition the teachers will give out a variety of homework tasks to the student, which are both interesting and useful.
The Salon Classes are a slightly different experience, as they are less structured around the courseware and more open to discussion. Here the ESL Teacher can lead all sorts of group debates on a number of topics or play some fun language games with the students.
Web International offers so much more though than simply computer self-study and classes. The Web student can also enjoy a wide range of extra activities, such as English Corners, Movie Classes and Extra Curricular trips. These are events where the students can mingle with the foreign teachers, that come from a number of different countries, and practice English in a totally natural, real-life way. In this way not only will the students’ language skills improve but also their cultural knowledge.
