Liren's pedagogy

Liren's pedagogy

Born from the business collaboration, Liren’s pedagogy is resolutely communicative.
It is focused more on the acquisition of communicative competence than the acquisition of a language system.
Clearly, it is not enough to know the grammar or the vocabulary, still need to know how to pick up the phone, bring forward or postpone a meeting!

 

The ten commandments of Liren’s pedagogy (Clicking on one of 10 points automatically yields the desired point)

 

  1. Pragmatism

    Pragmatism is one of the first forces of Liren’s pedagogy. Our instructors are trained to face with a given group, given number of hours and how to achieve objectives.
     

  2. Eclecticism

    This pragmatism leads to certain eclecticism. In a given situation, our trainers can use various methodologies, ranging from traditional to more innovative; explanation of a grammar point ,role play or use of audiovisual tools.
     

  3. Creativity

    Creativity also arises from the pragmatic approach of Liren’s pedagogy. Indeed, when the different methodological approaches are inadequate, the trainer is expected to make use of his/her creative resources and those of learners.
     

  4. Balanced development of skills

    The balanced development of skills is the limit that we set for this pragmatism productivity. What is the advantage of knowing the financial law jargon  if you are unable to propose a cup of coffee to your client?
    The communicative approach of our pedagogy strictly differentiates the corporate and daily activities and needs.
     

  5. Usability

    Usability is another component of Liren’s pedagogy. Usability is a real educational value. It allows the instructor to manage group’s dynamics and derive the maximum benefit. It allows viewing the situation clearly and therefore flowing of information.
    The platform e-learning Liren is the image of this friendliness.
     

  6. Reactivity

    This drive comes in touch responsiveness of our trainers. They are able to respond or redirect training when necessary. Language training is not a static process. It is a constantly evolving process and we take that into account.
     

  7. Flexibility

    The flexibility that must be understood here as a pedagogical attitude, mainly centered on the learner.
    Jean Piaget: "The teacher holds a position of mediator between knowledge and the learner and must deal with the specific registers of the learner (his a priori, psychology) and the characteristics of the construction of historical knowledge."
    The transmission of knowledge, and more know-how, through knowledge of the cultural and psychological learners.
     

  8. Relevance

    Another strong point of Liren’s pedagogy is “relevance”. Regularly our trainers are encouraged to ask the question of the relevance of what they teach. Which expression, which word, which grammatical rule should I teach  in order to reach the goal.
    In other words, the learner will have the opportunity to practice in a professional context?
     

  9. Simplicity

    Language is a complicated phenomenon, impossible to fully comprehend or put into equation. That's why Liren’s pedagogy takes advantage of simplicity. This is for the trainer, and not the least of his tasks is to express complex ideas simply. Our booklets are a good illustration of this synthesis and this desire to get to the essence to attain clarity.
     

  10. Functional approach

    In conclusion, the functional approach to Liren’s pedagogy is first to consider the language as a communication tool. The different concepts, grammar and other means will be always discussed in light of new skills they bring to the learner.
