Initial Interview: Each individual programme is developed to match the student's learning requirements. Initial level of proficiency, personal goals and interests are determined in a personel interview. In the case of groups, the teacher will also assess the compatibility of the various members.
Time span: A private language lesson typically runs for 1h30, and semi-private courses for 2h.
Location: courses are given on-site: student's office or domicile. Travel cost is covered by a surcharge on the first unit which is standard for the Brussels region (19 communes).
Scheduling: Day and time are agreed in advance. For private courses, the student is allowed to reschedule in agreement with the teacher, subject to the latter's availability (for instance, postpone by one or two days). Rescheduling and cancellations are only possible with prior notice of minimum 24 hours (weekends excluded). In all other cases, the course will be invoiced.
Programmes and materials are truly « tailor-made » to suit each student :
Synopsis and individual home work: At the end of each course, the student is given a synopsis including the grammar and vocabulary covered. The teacher must also develop homework relating to the
previous courses but also intended - and if needed repeated - to correct particular weaknesses. This also helps the student to progress in his/her writing ability.
In addition, if the student desires, we will supply a grammar adapted to his (her) level for a modest price.
Follow-up of students and monitoring of teachers: at regular intervals the student receives an evaluation form from MAB Lingua management which facilitates assessment of the programme and teacher selection, monitoring progress and, if needed, implementing corrective action. At the end of every month, the teacher must complete a progress report in order to help MAB Lingua management to carry out the follow up process.
Special requests: A student can always ask the teacher to change the programme to help him/her with a specific need… eg. to prepare a presentation, a conference, a meeting with the doctor, to write an
