Roadmap (site updates & additions)

The roadmap shows you what we are currently working on and hope to be working on to add to the site. Most content that we will be adding is to aid self-study or to run parallel to our online courses.

Self-study Grammar Courses

Purpose: A self-study course to run parallel with our online grammar programmes for A1 to C2 levels.
These courses can be used independently or as a supplement to your coursebook. The AI assistant will be able to help you with any guidance and offer advice and examples for you. The data used to structure the courses will be from our course material so you should find the format familiar.

Description: Develop an AI-assisted course focusing on Grammar structures following the CEFR (Common European Framework) guidelines.

Levels: A1-C2

Destination: Student Zone

Timeline: In the planning stages.

Self-study Idiom Course

Purpose: A self-study course to introduce learners to idioms.
Learning idiomatic expressions not only helps you speak more naturally but also teaches you about culture, how to communicate better, and expands your vocabulary. It makes English feel more real and helps you understand different ways people talk. Plus, it helps you connect with native speakers and understand English in all its different forms.

Description: Develop an AI-assisted course focusing on idioms to enhance students’ understanding of colloquial language.

Levels: B1-C1

Destination: Student Zone

Timeline: Launch between July – August.

Phrasal Verbs Course

Purpose: Phrasal verbs are probably one of the most confusing areas for students, yet one of the most necessary for the learner.

Description: Create AI-assisted courses on phrasal verbs to improve students’ comprehension of informal language usage. We hope to put together a course or two that, rather than just provide the student the meaning of a phrasal verb, asks the student to work out the meaning from context. The course can run independently or alongside our online course.

Level: A2-C1

Destination: Student Zone

Timeline: In the planning stages.

Spoken Audio Articles

Purpose: To listen for diverse Pronunciation Practice to expose students to diverse pronunciations and improve listening skills. Exposure to different accents is important for English language learners to become more versatile and adaptable in their language skills. Hearing a new accent requires you to ‘train’ your ears. The more accents you hear, the easier it becomes to understand different English speakers.

Description: Produce audio articles on well-known and not so well-known people. Articles read by voices featuring various accents to expose students to diverse pronunciations and improve listening skills.

Levels: A2-C2

Destination: Student Zone

Timeline: Release articles periodically, starting June 2024.

 

Purpose: We will be adding a list of useful links for student access for self-study. These will help support Young Learner, General and Exam English in Grammar, Reading, Listening, and Vocabulary. The links will come from a range of on-line sites and students are encouraged to recommend sites that they have found useful.

Description: Links for the English language learner recommended by teacher’s and students. The sites will offer free content though some sites may need a subscription for some services. Some sites are particularly for Young Learners and include interactive games, puzzles and exercises.

Levels: A1-C2 (including Young Learners)

Purpose: A collection of supplementary exercises to give extra practise on grammar areas at each level. Can be used separately or together with the online classes or the AI Assisted courses.
