Langports Academic Way

What is L.A.W.?

We aim to be unique in all ways: in what we do, in what we offer and in what we achieve. 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

L.A.W.

In order to achieve this, teachers 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.

Our courses aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) CPE

English for Academic Purposes

IELTS IELTS is our intensive IELTS preparation programs, focusing specifically on the academic version of the IELTS exam.

Our EAP program is designed for international students who need an intensive preparation to take further studies in Australia. It combines the two elements required to enter and succeed in a vocational or tertiary program in Australia: IELTS exam preparation and academic preparation. EAP focuses on improving the students’ English skills as the foundation of the desired outcomes. The course provides students the opportunity to improve their score in the IELTS exam and to be confident with their production skills (writing and speaking) in an academic context.

These programs are developed to improve not only the 4 macro-skills essential for the IELTS exam (listening, reading, speaking and writing) but also to provide an in depth focus on the micro-skills such as reading techniques and strategies, spelling, grammar and speaking test strategies.
