At Linguage we use Direct English as our lesson materials.

The Direct English system was developed by Luis Alexander, a renowned and respected educator and textbook author, especially for non-native speakers of English.
It is used in 25 countries and it has been adopted by many international companies, such as Hewlett-Packard (HP) or IBM.

Direct English system has 9 levels and is comprised of textbooks, DVDs and CDs and online content. The emphasis is on improving conversation skills and fluency through engaging drama-style short videos.

Linguage’s original teaching materials.

In addition to the Direct English materials, Linguage has created original teaching manuals and comprehensive lesson plans.

Together with our training, the additional materials, such as the Linguage lesson plan templates and lesson checklists, help our instructors teach high-quality lessons and adhere to our standards regardless of their previous teaching experience.
