About Erin

Educational Philosophy

Erin School of English exists to develop our students’ ability to communicate in English.  To speak, listen, read and write, to understand and be understood in the world outside of the classroom.  The desire to communicate and understand is the fundamental reason for all language study.  Enabling students to do this requires English to be taught as a living, evolving subject whose meaning is based in context, in the situations in and purposes for which it is used. 

Our goal as a school is not for students to have learned a set of grammar items but to be able to express their thoughts in English as they do in their own language.  This means that the learning objectives for all our courses are based on real world language use and mapped from the Common European Framework.

Our students may come from all over the world and from every type of educational background.  Each student and each class is unique, from their cultural heritage to their learning styles.  We encourage and train our teachers to take advantage of the many approaches to communicative language teaching in use in the modern classroom.  To tailor their lessons to the students they have, their strengths, weaknesses and learning needs, rather than conform to one single methodology above all others.  Learning is a journey for students and teachers alike so come travel with us at Erin School.
