A Unique Approach

Teachers at Open Doors English use a wide variety of methods in their teaching, especially those related to Communicative Language Teaching.  Lessons are active and dynamic. We incorporate reading, writing, listening, speaking, pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar from the beginner through the advanced level, with a focus on both accuracy and fluency.  Students have the chance to receive feedback about their language production, and to practice using English every day through guided conversations, role plays, and field trips.
