Use of Technology and Second Language Learning

Educational Videos, E-books & Video Channels

Our many years of experience and our students needs has led us to the selection and publication of a well-structured teaching materials and multimedia exercises which are free to our subscribers (available only to our students).

The proper distribution of subject-matters, the holistic and comprehensive preparation, the experiential teaching approach, the exclusive use of the foreign language in the classroom, the enhance of students’ problem solving skills, the right selection of the audiovisual and interactive material, the revision exercisesthe monthly oral test, offer the right skills to our students and seal their success.

Our training materials are regularly updated and adapted to students needs.

One of the greatest advantages of our methodology is the proper time management during the class in order for students to actively participate, speak and raise any questions at their ease in a friendly, cheerful and creative classroom environment. We believe that the student learns best when continuously practicing (Learn by doing). We use the Project-based learning method which emphasises learner-centered and cross-curricular learning activities guided by the teacher-mediator. Through the creative engagement the process provides, students acquire and successfully apply new knowledge.Our teachers create a productive and dynamic learning environment in which the student becomes part and actively participates.

In addition, our educational videos and all our teaching materials are always available 24 hours to our students through our website and our 6 educational youtube channels. (face to face training/blended learning – related video: click HERE).

Personalised Remedial Teaching

We offer different courses for minors and adults, private or in small groups. The Bertamini Multilingual School offers different courses (eg crash or intensive) for each level with flexible programmes wherein one or two calendar years students can be prepared for the third or fourth level diploma. Together we choose the program that meets your needs.

If a student has a difficulty during the learning process, our School Director, in cooperation with the teacher will offer the student support in order to remedy any weakness and instill self-confidence.

There is a choice of winter or summer language courses. Also courses with a specialised curriculum such as commercial, legal, financial terms for companies, organisations, specific courses for prospective university students from Greece and abroad, translation and interpretation courses, etc.

Integrated Learning Method

To us, the development of the four communication skills (reading, listening, writing and speaking) is achieved gradually and alongside. We intentionally created specific conversation classes in order that all our students efficiently develop their oral communication skills. For us, learning a foreign language is listening, practicing, communicating, speaking, gaining fluency and finally mastering the language.

We regularly update and enrich the curriculum with authorised supporting material.
