sintesi italiano

Il gruppo Shenker fin dal 1954 aiuta gli italiani a comunicare in inglese con successo, grazie all’esclusivo e innovativo metodo ideato da George Shenker che ha formato generazioni di studenti. Formare le persone a comunicare in lingua inglese in ogni situazione professionale e privata è la missione del gruppo. George Shenker sapeva che i suoi studenti avevano bisogno di un metodo rigoroso che consentisse loro di raggiungere un inglese fluente, con un’attenzione particolare alla lingua parlata. Oggi l’esigenza di imparare bene la lingua inglese è sempre più sentita, per questo è nato il progetto “Dall’Infanzia al Distance Learning”, dove la tradizione e la metodologia Shenker si è sposata con la voglia e la necessità di tecnologia del terzo millennio, dando così vita a un progetto didattico che accompagna l’individuo dai 4 anni fino al suo approdo al mondo professionale, attraverso un approccio nuovo interattivo ed efficace.


sintesi inglese

The project “Dall’infanzia al distance learning” combined Shenker’s fifty-year tradition and methodology with the technological desires and needs of the third millennium, creating a didactical project which accompanies the learner from the age of 4 to his entrance in the professional world through a new, interactive and effective approach. The idea was born within the Shenker scientific committee and is divided into two different segments by learner age: “Young Learners” from 4 to 14 and “Easy English language Programme”.
