What does bespoke mean?

A tailored or bespoke course does not mean choosing a B2 book for a B2 class. A tailored or bespoke course is one that is based on the results of individual tests carried out with each member of the group and based on their needs analysis. It is negotiated with the client and the group participants and is subject to re-negotiation on an ongoing basis. Such courses represent a marriage between the needs of the client and the needs of the individual learners.

Teachers may offer the group a choice of activities on a lesson by lesson basis, or may detour from their roadmap in order to accommodate specific needs as they arise. All of our intensive courses are bespoke and are based on an extended needs analysis followed by negotiation of the course before commencement. The format and duration of the course is agreed with the client and participants to make their learning as effective as possible.
