We've spent hundreds of hours perfecting our curriculum and training methods. There's a pressing need for work-focused training that gets learners communicating around actual work events.  All of our curriculum is our own and is focused on English, communication, and leadership.  Everyone learns differently and at their own pace. So, we train our teachers to differentiate [adjust a lesson to honor to the varying strengths of learners]. Teachers are also trained to address moments where extra support or autonomy is needed.

Alright, that's a lot of jargon right there. So, here are the basics. Here's what we always come back to when it comes to ensuring that learners, managers, and business owners are benefiting from our training. We've sliced it up into 4 categories.

Students of any level have access to pre-recorded and live English videos, online self-graded quizzes, a WhatsApp 'group chat' to comment and ask questions that come up outside of class, and other online tools.
