EXTENSIVE COURSE MATERIALS
The courses of MONOL make use of class materials that are authored by the academy’s very own Curriculum Development and Training Department. MONOL’s course materials are fundamentally created to help each student build their foundation in communicating with English. As each proficiency level rises, each material also advances to make way for more opportunities for students as they strive for fluency and global competence.
To support the course materials for the various curriculums offered in MONOL, the academy also ensures that each teacher gets the appropriate training and skill to be able to deliver knowledge and facilitate classroom discourse. Indeed, as language acquisition requires intense studying and practice, it is also necessary for the educators to be evaluated on their teaching methods and approach apart from the extensive trainings provided.
FLEXIBLE AND DIVERSIFIED LEARNING OPTIONS
MONOL offers various optional classes to students for free. These serve as supplementary classes to the students to further maximize their learning in the academy. Aside from the free optional classes, the students are also given options to add or convert their class setups to match it with their studying habits and styles.
