Conclusion

Threats + Many English centers, ACET is example, focus on Academic English, IELTS or TOEFL preparation ï Apollo lose customers in this training + The market has a lot of English Centers => High competition => Advantage need to develop and effectively use. Try to improve weakness. 8, Course idea. According to the assessment in the previous pages, it is obvious that Apollo's main target is on young learners and many parents prefer to let their beloved children to study English at Apollo center rather than at any other centers. However, Apollo doesn't pay so much attention to other cources as for children's education, so in other segments, such as IELTS preparation and English for adults e.t.c., it lack of proffesionalization and therefore Apollo loses the older learners. Therefore, it is needed for Apollo to start seriously suggesting about customers-adults. Apollo offers almost all the possible kind of courses that are in demand for the society for the current time and the main aim we suppose is that Apollo needs to enhance the quality of teaching of all existing ones. For example, the requirements from teacher has to be more strict and the tuition program has to be modified. ...read more.
