The Warm-up Course is not about learning. The deal is, you turn up each week and agree to commit to whatever exercises/games/roleplay the trainer brings. The idea is to remove all pressure and to build a solid foundation for subsequent courses.
We found the results fascinating. It is evident how essential it is to have language trainers who are also trained to put people at ease so that meeting each week in an easy-going, non-judgmental environment, even people who felt they had embarrassed themselves in front of colleagues (question 6) were nevertheless looking forward to the following course (question 12).
We have continued to evaluate courses at all levels throughout the last year.
