Classroom centered trainingOOur methodology depends more on classroom practice rather than theory. The present thrust of the training towards “interaction” derives from trainer’s attempts to customize materials, methodology and testing procedures in response to student’s needs.
Theory come task- based methodologyThe training emphasizes the acquisition of linguistic and communicative competence by involving learners in communication. The training adopts the methodology of “communication through communication” with the help of problem-solving tasks. This will be achieved by generating interaction in the classroom.
Learner-centered PedagogyIt is understood that communication skills are best retained when they are acquired through the self-involvement of the learner involves learners more deeply in the learning process than teacher-directed learning, resulting in better learning strategies and use of meaningful communication.
Graded materialsIt caters to the varied needs and ability, levels of students; and this becomes a value added to the teaching methodology.
Tasks on materialsIn a learner-centered pedagogy, tasks are the means by which trainers get learners to learn. Tasks implies problem-posing/solving exercises that call for a certain amount of mental and emotive involvement on the part of the learner with the focus on “meaning” and not on “form”
InteractionsDifferent types of interactions in the classroom in which the learners communicate in the target language cannot be over emphasized. Hence, a conscious attempt is made by the trainer to provide for a variety of interaction in the designing of teaching units.
Self – directed learningIt is another part of the teaching methodology. Learners are provided opportunities to do their own learning outside the class through practice pages and home assignments.
There will be five training hours per day. Classes commence from 9:20 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m. with a ten-minute tea break and a two-hour lunch break during the day.
Students are strictly expected to follow the timings failing which attendance will not be given to them. A minimum of 75% attendance is mandatory for the student to be eligible to receive the course credit.
Post an entry test, the students will be screened according to their academic level – Red: 1 to 35 Basic, Amber 36 to 59 Average, and Green 60 to 75 Advanced.
All students will be expected to attend the regular class from 9:20 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Slow learners and advanced learners will be catered to independently according to the schedule of the Academy. This will also depend on the mutual availability of time and to a greater extent on the cooperation and interest radiated by the student. The training listing methodology will record programs of learner from red to amber and amber to green.
All students are expected to do various types of assessments mentioned in the brochure – tests, assignments, seminars, internship, projects, quizzes stipulated by the Training Academy.
