Мethodology of Teaching of Success School Foreign Languages Centre
| In the framework of foreign languages study our courses are based on the following principles:
1. The communicative approach of teaching foreign languages.
6. The use of online resources, audio and video resources.
What is the “communicative approach” in the study of foreign languages?

Out of the four language skills:reading, writing, speaking and listening (listening comprehension) preference is given to the last two. The full range of different approaches that helps to create an English-speaking environment in which students will have to “operate”: read, socialise, participate in role-playing games, express their thoughts and have the ability and knowledge to draw a conclusion in English. Oxford and Cambridge are leading publishers of British English language teaching materials. They share a great deal in common with regards to the approach of English language teaching, right through the core of majority courses rests a communicative methodology, integrated with some traditional elements of teaching. It requires a maximum student engagement in a language process which can be achieved through the student’s appeal towards its native language to a minimum.|
What is the “individual approach” in learning foreign languages?
|The individual approach implies teaching a group of students from the same language program, except taking into account their individual age features. The main objectives of individualisation are: elimination of gaps at the entry level of language proficiency, prevention of trailing behind throughout a further process of learning; development of listeners with intellectual ability, logical thinking, memory; development of an individual style in terms of mastering a foreign language; the formation of the motivational factor.|
