Whether you need English for work, study or life, our Cogent live group classes are the best way to begin. As you learn from a CELTA qualified teacher and practice speaking with students having similar ability, you can make rapid progress. More importantly, interacting in a group boosts your confidence, save time as you also learn from the mistakes others are making and allows the teacher to give you specific developmental feedback on the spot.
Courses are normally held three days a week in a small group of 5 to 10 students with each class lasting approximately one hour. While the classes are teacher led, teacher talk time (TTT) is kept balanced and students are allowed more time to speak and contribute.
You will be joining at a certain CEFR level (A1,A2,B1 or B2) and progress as you develop your skillset. An average student takes a minimum of 2 months of online classes and 1 month of self-study to progress to the next level.
In addition to the online classes, teacher will give you assignments which will help cement your learning. You also get access to more than hundred of pre-recorded videos which explain various concepts in an easy way. Additionally, you will join a group of our existing and previous students where you can practice your spoken English in a casual environment.
Each class is built around a daily topic covering vocabulary, phrases and sentences required to navigate through that situation. Few example topics are - appearances, character, stating preferences and opinions, consumer service, Job types, profession, Career & success and relationship.
In each class, you will be covering certain portion of grammar relevant to the topic and work on improving your pronunciation by going through the commonly mispronounced words while also learning monopthongs and dipthong sounds required to speak correctly.
