Unison English School provides two very important things for non-native English speakers to improve their English proficiency: the study-method supported by cognitive psychology and the material collected directly from America, Canada, Australia, and other English speaking countries.
Our goal is…
To provide each student with the tailor-made lecture that helps him/her effectively improve his/her English proficiency and get the better understanding of cultural differences.
There is no universally accepted ultimate study-method to acquire the second language because people have different speeds and levels of understanding; however, there is a scientifically proven path each learner can follow to improve his/her language proficiency effectively. To make a technical long story short, it is the theory and the practice. Both of them are equally important especially when people try to study the second language after their fast-mapping stage. The practice is more important than the theory when the learners are in their fast-mapping stage. Taking these facts into consideration, Unison English School provides the students who are over fast-mapping stage with the lecture that places an importance on the theory and the practice while we provide the students who are in fast-mapping stage with lecture that places an importance on the practice. Unison English School looks for teachers who can play a practice part.
*Fast-mapping stage is the stage people exponentially increase their amount of vocabulary. It generally starts around 2-3 years old.
