Language classes by inaword
INaWORD was founded in 2000 by Zenobia Irani, a foreign language professional who acutely felt the need for foreign languages training in Chennai, in which verbal skills, both speaking and listening, are given due emphasis. From a small beginning in rented premises in Besant Nagar, we moved, in 2004, owing to increasing demand for our services, to our current premises (over 3000 sq. ft) at Kasturba Nagar in Adyar, ideally located near the Information Technology Corridor of Chennai.
Small groups (average size of each batch – 10 to 15) helps personalize courses, build confidence in students and provides innumerable opportunities for all to participate actively.
We often adapt, innovate and modify our syllabus and teaching methodology to incorporate newer elements that enhance the learning experience.
We foster creativity and innovation in our methods, making for interesting, lively classes. Authentic documents like songs, films, video clips are used to expose learners to the target language as used by native speakers.
In our FLAIR and AFFINITY programmes, the levels are of relatively short duration, giving students flexibility as long-term commitments are sometimes difficult to make.
The importance given to group and pair work, the teacher is more a guide and facilitator rather than only a disseminator of knowledge.
Cross-cultural inputs – we provide insights into the native culture of the countries in which the language is spoken.
