At Forum Intensive English Center, learning is more than staring at a book or listening to a teacher's voice—it's an engaging process that requires participation. The school's instructors boost students' fluency in the English language through interactive exercises developed by European linguist Susanna McPhilomy. Active group conversations and role-playing exercises are a few of the techniques used during intensive English courses and test-preparation programs that prepare students for the TOEFL, IELTS, and other exams. Students can also opt for classes designed to help them communicate in a professional setting.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap for each company, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
For more than 15 years, the full-time staff at Heart to Heart Introductions has been playing Cupid with a dating database that now holds upward of 24,000 members. Approximately 85% of that romantic melting pot is made up of busy professionals who don't have the time or patience for typical meeting spots, such as bars, coffee shops, or traffic circles. The team creates each member's personal profile based on phone and in-office interviews and then sends them off to other members that match their personality and preferences. When interests are mutually piqued, the staff sets up dates or provides members with each other's digits, using feedback from how the dates go to instruct future matches. When sparks are absent, the process starts over again, with new profiles and pictures sent every two days. The love luminaries help increase the chances of a successful first date by offering tips on proper duds, suitable conversation, and why pretending you invented soccer is bad.
