About - Emphasis English Academy

MASTER ENGLISH WITH NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS

It is our core belief that the ability to speak English is essential for success in the modern world and that everyone has the ability to learn to speak English, when taught in the right way. Through The Emphasis Method we give our students the advantage of a broad understanding of the language so that they are capable of expressing complex ideas easily. Our courses are focused on developing our students' reading, writing, listening and speaking skills at the same time so that they can truly master English.

Through our commitment to hiring and training the best teachers, our dedication to developing and refining the most modern and effective courses available and our principle of working with smaller groups of students, we believe that we offer great value for money and the best English courses in Malaysia.

HOW WE STARTED

Emphasis English Academy was founded in 2004 to give people in Malaysia the opportunity to master the English language. Since then, our team of dedicated teachers has been working hard, helping over 1,000 people to improve their English skills and giving them the confidence to express themselves in English.

Our focus is on developing our students into confident, communicative English speakers and we achieve this through The Emphasis Method. The Emphasis Method makes use of the latest scientific research on language development as well as tried and trusted language teaching methodology to make the process of language learning efficient, enjoyable and effective.

One of the key distinctions of The Emphasis Method is that students are taught by level, rather than by age. All students are given a free assessment before they join us and are then admitted to courses which enhance their English skills. This allows students of all levels and ages to achieve fluency regardless of their background or previous education.

We develop the students' English skills in a balanced, multi-skilled approach. Students at all levels partake actively in the learning process and make use of their multiple intelligences to learn different aspects of the language. All of the overt teaching and formal instruction is conducted at the beginning of the lesson, when the students' concentration is strongest. As the lessons develop, they become more interactive; greater and greater student participation is encouraged.

Our lessons always end with an activity based on the targets of the lesson. This is always the students' favourite part of the lesson. The activities are usually team-based and the students have to interact with each other to complete the activity. It really motivates the students to use what they have learned.

The Emphasis Method's focus on balanced development means that students develop the four basic skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) at the same time. This approach gives depth to the learning process and allows the students to develop skills which will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
