Building Block 1: For those who have completed Poppies Foundation Course:
Similar format but with greater emphasis on aspects only covered slightly or not covered in the Foundation Course.
We work on 7 topics (4 related to the Verb Phrase + 2 on Literature + 1 on Communication Strategies). You will have to write on a minimum of two and a maximum of 3 topics.
+ Language Practice
At the same time, we do listenings, text analysis, translations, summaries, etc, to look at the language from different perspectives:
- To be better prepared for possible questions in the exam.
- While we also reinforce and expand on concepts related to the topics covered.
+ Syllabus improvement
We check what we have covered in the Foundation Course with the legislation to make sure that all the contents, expected learning outcomes, learning standards and assessment criteria are totally in line with the Official Curricula. Language Practice and Syllabus presentation skills development.
Besides, we include Communication Strategies to kill two birds with one stone and connect topics and syllabus.
And in the face-to-face and Skype classes, we practise presentation skills to give you confidence when giving your rationale and presenting your unit.
Building Block 1 lasts 3-4 months
Price: 47€ Materials
Face-to-Face & Skype weekly classes: 137€
Online Only Tutoring: 137€
Occasional Skype class: 37€ per hourly session.
I have to state that I have really liked the way you organize your classes. The material you provide us with is original and very well chosen and I felt that every single question had a double goal: the topics and the language exam. I believe it is a great way of working. […] although I didn’t like the idea of topic 62 at the beginning, after working on the texts I think it is a different but great way of working on literature topics, because by translating and working with the texts you selected little by little we get to remember things and it is not that feeling of learning by heart but it similarly works.
Thanks for everything Paloma. I was really happy with your classes and I didn’t feel I was wasting my time and money at all at any moment as I had already felt with other types of preparation that I had had previously.
Thanks a lot for your help.
