American & British Academy – ABA English – is an online, mobile, and e-learning academy designed to teach English by adopting an approach based on natural method principles, which simulate the intuitive way in which languages are learned via total immersion.The course can be followed on computers and mobile devices via the app ‘Learn English with ABA English’. Full learning continuity is guaranteed regardless of the device used: a student can begin studying the course on a tablet in the morning, continue on a smartphone throughout the day and complete their day’s work on their home computer in the evening.
Currently the English course can be studied in seven languages: English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish, and it will soon be available in Turkish and Chinese. Six English levels are provided, from Beginner to Business, encompassing A1-C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
Each of the 144 course units revolves around a short ﬁlm (ABA Film) with a modern real-life story which can be viewed with or without subtitles as many times as necessary. The lesson’s eminently practical exercises are all based on this ﬁ lm. The student progressively covers all four basic skills in their natural learning order: ﬁrst, listening and learning to speak and then learning to read and write. The grammar explanations, which are vital for consolidating learning, are covered towards the end of each unit.
