CIAL's teaching approach can be described as eclectic, as it combines various approaches and methodologies in structured lessons with clear aims. All skills - listening, speaking, reading and writing - develop naturally with gradual learning of grammar, lexical and phonetic concepts through practice. Course levels are linked to the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), and learning objectives for each course are expressed in 'can-do' statements.
