Langports Academic Way
What is L.A.W.?
Langports aims to be unique in all ways: in what it does, in what it offers and in what it achieves. We are constantly striving to get the best outcomes for our student clients. This especially relates to our academic programmes, where we have used many years of experience and a wealth of knowledge to create the Langports Academic Way – L.A.W.
Instead of simply relying on the traditional English language textbook approach, our teachers are trained to be able to teach beyond the textbook, exploring the important areas of grammar and vocabulary. Modern research has highlighted the importance of grammar and vocabulary being taught together, especially in the classroom.
The benefits to students of L.A.W. are that our teachers: have an in-depth knowledge of grammar – they can answer students questions easily and confidently are trained to be able to teach more than what the textbook teaches – not just grammar, but all skills study and research – all are motivated to become better teachers, benefiting greatly from our in-house training program develop their own special materials to help students better understand the difficulties of grammar and vocabulary, as well as other important skills such as speaking and pronunciation
In order to achieve this, teachers at Langports, through our in-house teacher training program, are trained on how to teach grammar and vocabulary and how to make it more understandable and enjoyable for students. Our academic department is also constantly working on developing its own teaching materials which help both students and teachers.
Langports’ courses aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) CPE
