To make best use of analytical minds that working executives possess, we try to make use of favourable factors that help to teach adults who many times prefer to analyze, compare and deduce concepts making use of their already existing expression and comprehension skills in their own language. Accordingly, during the first phase, we follow the Grammar teaching method where more importance is given to learning of grammar rules, vocabulary and accuracy. The medium of instruction is English or Hindi or a personalized language as per the specific requirements of the students. In the second phase, once the students have been introduced to the basic rules of grammar and have started writing and reading, they are simultaneously introduced to Direct Teaching method, where by the instructions are given in the concerned language. Students are introduced to day-to-day vocabulary, and encouraged to develop oral communication skills in graded manner via demonstrations, use of pictures etc. Later, in the third phase after the basic rules of grammar have been taught and the students have begun expressing by associating their vocabulary with day-to-day life, they are taught using systematic principles of selection. This method focuses on developing oral expressions of the selected written material under the guidance of instructor, and slowly students are encouraged to develop writing skills.
