DynaSpeak’s Mainstream Immersion Class (MI) accelerates Phase 1 students to intermediate and higher levels really fast. The reasons are simple: very small classes and intensive speaking practice. In Phase 1 of the standard full time DynaSpeak programme there are nine students or fewer in your MI class each day, so you get maximum speaking practice in your daily lesson, that’s 40% of the Phase 1 course – guaranteed! The Mainstream Immersion classes across 7 stages focus on speaking to give you the confidence to actually use the language. This unique combination of speaking focus, with intensive practice really makes the difference!
Studying at DynaSpeak is a great chance to make new friends, learn about different cultures and accelerate your mastery of real-life English language communication. The DynaSpeak Social Club arranges a wide range of activities, from social outings and excursions through to exploring New Zealand and beyond. Friendship and confidence grow through unforgettable experiences.
The standard full time DynaSpeak English Course is 25 hours study time per week. In Phase 1, Mainstream Elective Plus includes your Mainstream Immersion Class and one Elective option. This unique combination of two parts makes Phase 1 highly effective and allows you to focus on the particular skills you need most. You will also join one-hour Tutorials, Class Field Trips outside school and Assessments four times each quarter (12 week period) throughout your course.
In Phase 2, Elective Pro25 allows you to study 20 hours per week in your Elective option, plus 5 hours per week in focussed Tutorials featuring workshops, seminars and practicums directly related to your study plan, supervised by your Elective Dean.
