About the  Atlantis Language Institute (ALI)

  • ALI’s program aims its methodology to a "communicative language teaching," including interactive, learner-centered classrooms. Teaching strategies
    highlight the use of Active Learning where students are guided through the achievement/enhancement of their critical thinking skills as key ingredient
    in their practice during the learning process. A combination of lecture/laboratory, individual and teamwork leads this course. Motivational tools like
    movies, videos and audio tracks along with the textbooks will motivate and keep student’s attention. Teachers can adhere to their own teaching styles
    and to the needs of their actual students at any time as convenient for the benefit of the SLO’s achievement. Usually, the methodology used in the
    beginners’ levels is focused on integrated skills. Throughout intermediate and advanced levels, instructors are free to mix and match different
    methodologies as appropriate for their courses and students.
    The students’ outcomes are measured consistently with assessment tools stated by the core and Lab software, and with frequent reviews from the
    teacher’s own initiatives, as needed. Grammatical structures are not presented as isolated patterns for analysis and rule memorization, but within a
    functional and communicative context. As students move from one level to another, they face a wide range of opportunities for English language
    practice. This is achieved through student/teacher interaction and a great deal of pair and small group work in which students expand on structural
    and functional models and, thus, gradually learn to express themselves spontaneously in the language.
    ALI offers student’s access to Burlington English software assigned for Lab practices and in-class activities at teacher’s discretion. BE includes an
    effective training of the language domains conveniently guided by the teachers

Course Information

  • The participants of this revision agree on the fact that an effective ESL curriculum provides a means of communication for people in multiple and
    varied social contexts to express themselves, interact with others, learn about a multi-cultural world, and meet their individual and collective needs.
    What is most important for ESL learners at Atlantis Language Institute is to communicate effectively in English while challenging themselves within
    educational goals, gaining success at their workplace, or breaking the language barrier within a social context. These learners must have multiple
    opportunities to use English, must interact with others meaningfully as they progress, and get as much feedback as possible on their language use.
    Fluency and accuracy in both spoken and written English are emphasized.
    ALI’s program follows general principles for ESL adult learners as recognized on various institutional curricula consulted for re-stating ours
    ❖ Curriculum and instruction should align with adult learner outcomes, and supported by often research and knowledge of effective practice.
    ❖ Curricular and instructional processes should meet individual learner’s needs through learner-centered approaches.
    ❖ Curricular content and instructional practices should be functional.
    ❖ Curricula and instructional processes contribute to the development of independent problem solvers and thinkers.
    ❖ Curriculum and instruction are adapted according to evaluation information
    We created the ESL program at ALI considering the students’ needs of communication involving the four main language skills: listening, speaking,
    reading and writing. ESL students’ common needs were determined through discussion from creators’ experience and education, and from the
    consideration of professionally published texts appropriate for IEP. The creators of the program met and selected core texts from different publishers,
    and agreed to choose the Oxford Press Q Skills for Success levels 1-5. This text also provides with tools of assessment conveniently articulated through
    each of the levels to measure the student’s outcomes, including Placement Test, Unit evaluations, midterm test, and final test.
    After completion of this program, the students will be able to demonstrate adequate understanding of the spoken language; talk and discuss effectively
    and respectfully; read with enhanced ability to comprehend and evaluate texts in areas of his/her personal interest, and develop essential
    communication in writing with a variety of purposes and audiences.
