About course

Book Club is a course that combines a pleasant topic with useful language practice. If you are a book and English enthusiast, you will feel right at home here. On top of that, you can fit it into any diary you have.

Once a week in the early evening, the course will brush up your conversational English skills in stimulating discussions with your classmates and the tutor. The lecturer will always pre-determine a book title or book excerpt to read when you have time. You don’t have to worry about reading difficult books – we provide adapted versions of books that correspond with your level of English. The themes from the fiction you read are the basis for shared conversation evenings where you can enjoy a variety of creative activities and lively discussions. Most importantly, you will converse in English the whole time.

Who is the course for

The course is suitable for students who have a level of English between B1/B1+ and would like to not only maintain this level but also strengthen their communication. The course has a frequency of 1x60min per week, so it is one of those courses that keeps the language in shape rather than moving it up a level. It is therefore aimed at those who do not have a lot of time, but want to stay in touch with English.

What you will get from this course?

  • Strengthening the ability to express your thoughts accurately
  • Expanding conversation skills, speeding up reactions in English
  • Enriching vocabulary in different areas
  • Access to appropriate learning materials that can be used outside of class
  • Structured group learning process with individual attention
  • A high level of online interaction with the tutor and classmates
  • Challenging discussions that make you forget you are learning
  • Ongoing feedback from the tutor and tailored recommendations for further study
  • Individual personal interview with the tutor at the end of the course

In 2020, we became the first language school in Slovakia to attain international accreditation from EAQUALS, and to date, we remain the only one in Slovakia with this distinction. EAQUALS serves as the guarantor of quality language education for schools in an international setting.

Workshop: Video mania

Folk wisdom says that it’s better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times. When we use videos in our lessons, students get a chance to learn both by seeing and hearing at once. Not to mention we know how many of them love watching videos. That’s why in this workshop we will discuss ways of using them in our lessons and try out some fun video activities. We´ll also look at an online platform

Reference

We have been cooperating with the Bridge for several years. I appreciate their attitude towards us as clients and their innovative approach to our employees as students. The progress in their English is significant. They invest into their teachers, which reflects in our language improvement. I have a great personal experience with individual classes, which help me not just to improve my English skills, but also to empower me for important presentations and meetings held in English.
