Fernandez Talen Instituut offers tailor-made courses for students at all levels of linguistic competence. During an intake interview we determine student's starting level (according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) and we discuss their learning goals. Next, our staff members design an individual study programme based on student's needs. We offer a number of contact hours and we usually provide all the study materials. Typically, our students are given homework and/or specific tasks for self-study. We provide continuous feedback during the programme and once the course is completed we normally carry out a final assessment. You will be taught by a CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages) certified English teacher.
