English Resources for Architects
and Landscape Architects
Architects need English for all kinds of reasons, and my first job as a teacher and course designer is to discuss the priorities with my students. I need to know what they need English for such as job interviews, portfolio and CV writing, work meetings, communicating with clients, presenting ideas, dealing with other professionals, networking and writing a variety of business documents and emails.
The goal of my lessons is to make the English specifically for Architects and landscape architects and to make the lessons interesting, relevant and thought-provoking. I subscribe to a practical way of teaching English where I'm continuously refining the way I teach grammar. Grammar is a hard one because very often the argument is 'to teach' or 'not to teach.' My philosophy is grammar points are taught by paying close attention and listening to the ways my student speak and implementing an action plan by balancing their needs with what I believe will help them move forward. For me, teaching English for Architects and landscape architects is about making it task-based and relevant.
If you're learning English here are some of my the resources that will help to get you started.
