At Avalon, students develop their English language skills by studying with both Korean English teachers and native English speakers. Students spend half of their time with a Korean teacher and the other half with a native speaker of English. Each teacher focuses on slightly different areas. The Korean teacher primarily focuses on grammar and vocabulary, giving the students the chance to ask questions and get clarification in their own language. In the native speaker’s class, the focus is on listening, speaking, reading, writing, and pronunciation, and is the student’s chance to implement the things they’ve learned and be immersed in an English-only environment, allowing them to sharpen their English communication skills.
We currently have 5 native English-speaking teachers working at our academy.
