TRAININGS

English as a language is more popular than other world languages. It is spoken in 58 countries as a first language and therefore, is a requirement of many countries beseeming for immigration and study abroad options. Across India, a zillion institutes and private tutors offer training in English language. Despite this, the ability to communicate effectively in English remains unrefined for a majority.

This is partly because the correct systems are not in place and rest because the language skill of ‘trainers’ themselves is fragmentary.

At CAAN Wings’ English Training Division, we see this as an opportunity. For mastery in any subject, the basics need to be developed first. Our curriculum is designed using science of learning and so focuses on the holistic learning rather than just gaining an ordinary score on the IELTS/ PTE test.

Our mission is to deliver value through quality and customized deliverables. By learning English at CAAN Wings, you would not only get your desired score in one shot, but also be able to communicate skillfully in English.

We provide training in IELTS, PTE & Spoken English. Our trainers are versed in English and possess unmatchable training experience.

We also believe that learning should never cease. Our trainers and counselors are periodically trained and encouraged to develop new skills regularly to continue teaching English with a difference!

Spoken English

An ability to effectively communicate in English is an essential skill to have. For both students and professionals, understanding and expressing in the language English has become a must-have trait to achieve success in any field. Sadly, the teaching of English language in schools in ineffective given the mediocre skills of majority of language teachers. This has led to the growth of various vocational training institutes. The situation, however, doesn’t change. Young graduates with an average level of skill-set are appointed as faculty. In effect, English language proficiency remains dull. Majority of the population does not possess the know-how of this universal language and hence, are deprived of better employment or growth opportunities, sometimes even turned down marriage proposals.

Keeping this in mind, and with an aim to improve the overall skills of people, we have designed the ‘Foundation Course’ in English.

We have divided the training to develop the skills of reading, listening, writing and speaking in English via an understanding of the following:

  • Organization of ideas
  • Understanding the audience - their purpose and reactions
  • Fluent presentation of ideas
  • Greater control through clear pronunciations, correct grammar, and range of vocabulary
  • Voice modulation for better presentation

 

How are we differentiated?

  • Our trainers are trained and qualified English language majors
  • Scientifically and logically designed practice material
  • On-campus library to develop reading habit and widen the perspective
  • Overall development through continuous practice
  • A culture of English speaking encourages better use
  • A perfect blend of contemporary and proven traditional methodologies of learning are employed
  • Personal attention allows us to focus on your specific requirements for better results
