General English

Our General English Lessons are taught using a dynamic, student-centred approach to learn English. In every 55-minute lesson, your native English teachers will focus on encouraging you to use the vocabulary you already know and may have forgotten, teaching you new vocabulary and expressions, and correcting your grammar. By listening to a native English speaker, you will naturally follow their pronunciation and intonation, quickly stop translating in your head and start speaking English with fluency.

For Beginner/Elementary level learners, our experienced teachers know how to help you build your confidence. You will gradually start to understand more and more as your teacher will set a pace that suits you and introduce new vocabulary.

As your level improves and you want to work on sounding more like a native, our qualified native teachers will give you the learning strategies and confidence to be able to produce the English accent and tone.

Lesson structure: Revision (20-minutes), Reading (10-minutes), New Work (20-minutes), Feedback (5-minutes)

English with Direct Method Course eBooks are required for our General English Lessons. A free course eBook can be added on any 4-week subscription plan of General English Lessons.

The Method

The Crown Academy Method is based on a carefully constructed system of revision. New words and grammar are taught using language you have already learned. You immediately practise the new material, listening to questions, saying the answers and getting immediate correction for any mistakes. Vocabulary and grammar are then systematically revised, reappearing in different contexts as you progress through different levels of your course.

The method focusses on:

Speed: the lessons are taught at a natural speed. There is no time to think and translate into your own language. This quickly improves your confidence and speaking skills.

Correction: you will listen and speak for most of the lesson and all your mistakes will instantly be corrected by your teacher.

Repetition: the lessons are taught through constant repetition and revision of grammatically correct sentences.

Constant systematic correction of your mistakes, greatly improves your pronunciation and confidence when speaking.  The teacher corrects all your mistakes the moment you make them by imitating (copying) your mistake and then saying the correct pronunciation/form of the word. For example, if you say “He come from Poland”, the teacher quickly says “not come – comes”. This correction by imitation helps you to hear the difference between your mistake and the proper form. You should immediately repeat the correct word and continue with your sentence. You learn a lot from this correction of your mistakes, and constant correction results in fast progress.
