Englishlink's content was built by qualified and experienced English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers wishing to replicate the successful Certificate of Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) style of teaching, designed by Cambridge University. Englishlink is the only e-learning product in the world that has managed to successfully deliver this effective manner of teaching online.

Englishlink approaches English training through the 'whole language' approach.  The CELTA method focuses on meaning (context/situation creates language), while pulling all learning styles into the language acquisition (visual/auditory/kinaesthetic) process.

Based on this approach, Englishlink is offered as "units" of Study. Within each unit, the users develop their grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and skills through the interconnection of lessons, and constant revision throughout the unit.

In order that language is presented in authentic manner, each lesson has a theme used to present new language, both situational and functional.  Authentic texts further support the teaching content.

The expectations of students using Englishlink include:

  • access to a computer with broadband internet capability
  • a need and desire to learn English
  • a basic understanding and knowledge of the language
  • the motivation to learn

In addition to the benefits listed above, there are many more.  Students are taught and guided from the beginning to the end of each lesson.  The fact that they can also rewind and repeat lessons allows students to progress at their own pace, and never miss a point.  This is something that cannot be done in a physical classroom!

The content of a one-hour class delivered online would be the equivalent of 2-3 hours in a face-to-face classroom where the needs of different learning styles and abilities must be met.  In addition, dominating students never sidetracks Englishlink classes.
