Our recipe for success is teaching communication in a foreign language, accompanied by audiovisual techniques and most useful ideas derived from other methods, such as direct, audio-lingual and cognitive method. Such an approach to language teaching provides us with maximum flexibility regarding the adjustment of a course to the client’s profile and needs. At the same time, the approach follows the latest trends, state of knowledge and research in the area of adult education.
