The course follows the communicative approach and teaches to communicate by communication. We believe that learning happens in the process of interaction and teaching should create a need to communicate in different situations, real and imaginary. • We have taken an integrated approach to teaching and learning, drawing on the best elements of our own traditions and also on recent innovations from practices in other European countries. This enables us to include material to suit different types of learner and also cross-curricular elements appealing to pupils with strengths in drama, music, drawing and other school subjects. • We are taking pupils along the road to developing all-round language competence, focussing on linguistic competence (lexical, grammatical, phonological), sociolingistic competence (markers of social relations, simple politeness conventions, intercultural awareness) and pragmatic competence (functional purposes of the language). • We see learning a language as mainly a cognitive process. Emphasis is given to tasks that allow learners to experience a variety of cognitive activities (developing their thinking) in which an information gap is created. When pupils focus on a task, the language learning process becomes more motivating and effective. • We have adopted an integrated syllabus (a multi-syllabus) where we have brought together topics, functions, vocabulary and structures; listening, speaking, reading and writing.
