International House Language Centre – Kharkiv offers a range of courses for closed corporate groups - either in-company or in-house - at levels Elementary through Advanced.
Each applicant takes a Placement Test and an interview, whereby their starting level is determined. We also perform a needs analysis through a questionnaire filled in by each of the prospective students as well as by Director of the company. Based on the results of the Placement Test and needs analysis a coursebook is chosen or a tailor-made course is written which is the intellectual property of the Center,
We normally offer closed group corporate courses divided into four-week modules. The number of modules depends on the starting level of learners and a target level of language proficiency. The classes are normally taught 2 times per week, 2 hours each (a 16-hour module), the number of students in a group is normally 6 – 12. However, the overall format, duration and intensiveness of the course can be negotiated and are designed to meet the particular needs of the client.
The teaching methods are a mix of the communicative methodology, the task-based approach and the lexical approach with a focus on skills and vocabulary, which allows to work with learners of varying ability and level in one group. The materials used are suggested by International House London Executive Center.
