    As a learner, you will remember only about 20% of the material when you are passively involved. When you are actively engaged in a learning experience, you will remember 80%.

    That’s why all our programs are highly interactive and participant-centered. We frequently engage and support you, provide a stimulating environment, and give you opportunities for immediate skill development. 

    Based on the theories of Behaviorism and Constructivism, new learning can be conditioned through positive behaviors at any age, and one’s world is based on a series of constructs that students create for themselves. That’s why all participants in our courses play an active role in every class. 

    We provide a positive learning environment and helpful resources. As a learner, you will feel comfortable to push yourself to your highest potential.

    Cross-Cultural Course

    “As a requirement for my recent promotion and as a non-native English speaker, I had to complete only a single English course in my workplace. I had the fortunate situation to have Cheryl as my English teacher in this class. Little did I know that I will be insisting on continuing the 4 courses that Cheryl teaches. As a scientist, I was not interested in and patient in taking language classes. However, Cheryl taught English in a way that made me eager to learn from her over extended periods. Engagement in classes, her innovative and fun ways to make the students interact with each other for effective language usage. And most importantly her passion for teaching and sense of humor were indeed the key factors that made my colleagues I keen on coming to the classes over one and a half years. During this period, I realized that fun and learning, two concepts that I did not believe gather in one place, do exist in Cheryl's classes. Thank you, Cheryl!"

    "I am writing to you today to express to you my deep appreciation. I had a couple of Business English and Business Writing courses with you at KAUST and today, what you trained us showed up to the surface. I was writing an email as a part of my usual work, and then I told myself: "let me test it in some online checkers." Well, it showed a performance of 100% on more than one website. I am really pleased with this result. All I can say to you now is thank you. Thanks a lot for the guidance you provided us with."
