Technically speaking, there is a lot to be said about the kind of system we apply in DNI Colleges. The first and foremost important issue about Crosscut® is that it is exclusively designed for EFL learners in a short-run fashion. Researches show that the variety of English language books available in the market (those with the famous motto: one size fits all) can hardly meet Iranian language learners` needs particularly in their adulthood. This is no doubt attributable to a variety of different reasons such as the place and role of English in Iran, learners` age, real and urgent needs, the length of learning, method of instruction and so many others. For instance, when learners reach an age in which speech patterns are fully developed in their mother tongue, they find it hard to learn a foreign language on the basis of ESL rules. Apart from the very short time spent in a language classroom, Iranians are hardly in touch with English in the real environment of their country. Therefore a unique system has been devised based on adult EFL learners` urgent language needs in this country. Here are some CROSSCUT® key features:
