The ABA English Natural Method
The ABA Natural Method simulates the process by which the brain naturally learns a language: first you listen and understand, then you begin to speak imitating native speakers and finally you learn to write with the help of grammatical rules.
All units start with an ABA Film, a movie-quality video showing a real-life situation. The ABA Film is followed by a series of activities related to its content that will help you listen, speak, read and write in English.
Following the ABA Natural Method, these four skills are addressed in a specific cyclical sequence: the natural learning order.
The course is divided into six levels (A1-C1) that correspond to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). It is comprised of 144 units and each unit has 8 sections that have been organized according to our natural learning approach.
Watch the ABA Film
ABA Films are short movies filmed in London and New York which star native English-speaking actors. The characters captivate us with their stories and place us in real-life settings. The film dialogues include the vocabulary, grammar and language skills that you practise in each unit, allowing you to assimilate and remember what you are learning, easily and naturally.
With ABA English’s natural method you begin speaking right away. You will dub the film script with our Listen-Record-Compare technology and experience the language firsthand. By imitating the actors’ accents your pronunciation progressively improves and, without consciously realizing it, you begin to apply the phrases in situations of your daily life.
Grammar to consolidate learning
Our teachers have created a series of video-classes and activities to help you consolidate what you have learnt in the ABA Films. After the teacher has explained the unit’s grammar to you, you then have the opportunity to put your knowledge into practice through interactive writing, comprehension and vocabulary exercises. You can revisit and review the content at any time while you train your ear to different English accents.
Practice with your personal teacher
Meet the personal teacher who will accompany you throughout the entire course. Your teacher will help you progress with weekly reports, study advice and by answering your questions. In addition, you will be able to practise your English by exchanging as many written messages as you wish, to discuss an ABA Film that has impacted you or to tell your teacher about your own life.
