Our Learning Method

What is the Institute of Modern Languages Blended Learning Method?

Our blended learning method includes the best parts of many different learning styles. You can study English by following the natural way of learning a language. We teach English using ‘natural language acquisition’ – the same way you learned your first language. We focus on listening and speaking and reading and writing. We offer many opportunities to practice English in real life contexts which help you to achieve a deeper understanding of the language and teaches you how to use it in everyday situations.

How does our method work?

You will learn through bite-sized Interactive Lessons from an entertaining Online Practice-style series that you can access anywhere. You will have access to Digital Workbooks that are fun to complete and give you instant feedback on your progress. Practice will include a fun and relaxed environment in the small teacher-led classes. Corresponding Classes help you to improve your vocabulary, speaking skills and our centers offer you an immersive experience with Social Clubs to join. Access your personalized dashboard to complete exercises and track progress. Our method is completely customizable so you can access your personalized study program where you want, when you can.

A unique Study Cycle that follows the natural way of learning English

Study Cycle

At IML you can follow our unique study cycle to start practicing English straight away. You are first taken through the orientation process, where you get conversant with the program. The focus on listening and understanding, then move to practicing speaking and pronunciation skills. This is then reinforced by completing reading and writing exercises in our Digital Student Workbooks. Next you have a small class with an English teacher to demonstrate how much you have learnt. We also have extra complementary classes/office hours to improve your language skills and fun Social Clubs to meet with teachers and gain more confidence in your speaking abilities.
