At Prisma you will practise all four basic skills: listening, reading, speaking and writing. The emphasis is however placed on speaking - for a language is learnt mainly through speaking. We lead you from imitative through guided-productive to free speech. For what good are rules of grammar and vocabulary if your are not able to carry on a conversation face to face?
Our course-leaders know how to get you talking. In general we choose methods of working and practising which encourage speech, e.g. dialogue drills between partners, interviews, work in small groups. And our motto is: no harm in making mistakes!
For mistakes are necessary and welcome steps along the path to successful learning. Whoever speaks a lot, makes a lot of mistakes, but only to begin with. By doing so, one becomes more receptive to the new language and therefore picks it up faster and with greater ease.
