Tell us a bit about you and your institution.
Fluency Formation is located in a small town in Picardy, and we dispense our training in and around the town of Beauvais, as well as in Paris. We offer business and general English courses in continuing education programs, working closely with companies to develop the English levels of their workforce and equip our students with tools to carry out the tasks they need to in English.
We pride ourselves on providing tailor-made courses and the wealth of resources on Macmillan English Campus means that there really is something for everyone.
How long have you been using Macmillan English Campus, and how do you use it?
We’ve been using Macmillan English Campus for two years now. Our teachers use it regularly as a classroom tool, as the listening and video content is relevant to our student’s needs and lends itself nicely to communicative activities. Our students use it in two ways: either to complete exercises set by the teacher to reinforce points covered in class, or to focus on areas they feel they need to work on in their own time. The exercises are relatively short, so we try to encourage them to apply the “little and often” principle.
How has Macmillan English Campus helped your institution, your teachers and your students?
We pride ourselves on providing tailor-made courses and the wealth of resources on Macmillan English Campus means that there really is something for everyone. The Markbook is great for giving students an overview of their own progress and help them to develop their self-analysis. It also means we can keep an eye on who’s doing their homework!
What’s your favourite thing about Macmillan English Campus?
We deal with busy people who don’t have as much time as they’d like to devote to their English training. Macmillan English Campus is easily accessible and user-friendly. People can log in for as short a time as they like and still complete some exercises, read an article, play some games or dip into Culture World.
