Picture yourself speaking with 4 other students at your same English level, discussing an article about a current topic that you are interested in. (Kind of sounds like an episode of Jinek doesn’t it?) Imagine how much more fun it will be to learn English when you’re in an English course that engages you with interesting discussions with your classmates, rather than going page by page through an outdated, boring textbook.
It’s been proven in education research that students learn more when what they know what they are learning is relevant to them. However, it’s not enough to know that using English is relevant to you, you absolutely have to be studying engaging, relevant topics that keep your interest. By forcing you to use English to speak and write about topics you care and know about, our English lessons make sure that you're always studying something that is relevant to you. This keeps your mind engaged and ensures that you're always actively using English, rather than passively using skills you’ve already learned in the past.View courses
Our goal in our group courses is to recreate situations that you will experience in real life. If you’re in a business English course, we’ll make sure that every course feels like you’re engaged in a setting that will help you in your real job. The same goes for our general English courses, we want you to feel like you’re improving skills you'll actually use in the real world.
As far as grammar goes, we’ll help you focus on grammar issues that you can improve fast, and remember forever. We’ll help you fix the most common English grammar mistakes that Dutch speakers usually make which are holding you back from having the level of fluency that you want and need. The most important thing about grammar that we focus on in our English courses is making sure that you understand it on a real-world level. It’s meaningless if you memorize a bunch of grammar rules if you’re not able to put those rules into action in your natural speaking.
We focus a large portion of our English courses with you on speaking. Many Dutch people speak English every day at work, but the problem is they don’t get corrected by their colleagues when they make mistakes. At The Weaver School, we encourage you to make mistakes, that way we can help you improve by correcting you and helping you form new, correct habits when speaking English. This has been scientifically proven to help learn skills faster. When you want to learn English, you have to choose an English course that focuses on building a solid foundation of English fundamentals, then you can build more advanced English skills on top of that.
Once you find yourself at an advanced level of English, you will need an English course that focuses on advanced writing skills. We offer lessons that center around improving your writing to a level that’s on par with the needs of universities, businesses, and publications across the world. You’ll learn advanced techniques that will improve your word choice and sentence structure. You’ll also learn how to write with a level of style that will make sure people not only read your entire texts, but also that they will be engaged readers and want to read more from you in the future.
Reading for information is not a skill that most of us practice every day. These days we’re all used to reading WhatsApps, Tweets, blog posts, Slack messages, and emails. That doesn’t give us much practice in analyzing complex texts for meaningful and insightful information. The only way to improve your ability to read English texts in this way is to practice those less-used skills.
In The Weaver School courses, we teach you how to read texts for information and how to properly analyze the texts to be able to truly learn from them. No more basic and bland texts that have no relevance to you. From now on, you’ll be reading texts with a new analytical approach that allows you to increase your knowledge level about unfamiliar subjects quickly, and also give you an advantage over your competition.
What’s the main difference between an English course at The Weaver School and learning English somewhere else? The main factor that allows us to stand out is the way we treat our students. There are many great language schools in the Netherlands, however, few treat their students with as much value and respect as we do. From the moment you contact us, we work to partner with you to help you achieve your personal and professional goals. Whether we are the best choice for you or not, we will advise you to help you find the perfect English school for your needs.
