Teaching methodology


WHY IS IT BETTER TO LEARN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE WITHOUT USING YOUR NATIVE OR ANY OTHER INTERMEDIARY LANGUAGES?

Natural and artificial environment

It is common knowledge that the fastest way to absorb a foreign language is in its natural environment. When you find yourself surrounded by people who do not understand your mother tongue, it forces you out of your comfort zone and activates your survival instinct. Inadvertently you start memorising first words and then language structures required for successful communication (introductions, meeting people, asking for help or buying food, etc.)

Tailored programs and personalized methods

Tailored programs and personalized methods designed on the basis of your preferences and current language proficiency will help you master any language. At our school, teachers develop individual programs for every student. These programs primarily depend on your current depth and level of knowledge but also on the specific learning targets discussed during an introductory class. The program may be adjusted along the way upon student’s request or dependent on the pace of learning and acquisition of material, or for any other individual reasons. Pursuant to international standards in the area of language study, every course is designed to develop four basic skills: speaking, reading, writing and listening. At every level, the teacher duly emphasizes this or that language skill dependent on how quickly a student absorbs new material and puts the acquired knowledge into practice.
What we ask from you is time, interest and willingness, for our part, we will show you that professionalism, experience and dedication to what we do produce excellent results.

Leaving your comfort zone

If you don’t have a chance to learn a foreign language in its natural environment, you can create the language environment artificially: by listening to music, news and entire programs in this language and repeating words and phrases in front of the mirror; by reading books, newspapers and magazines jotting down useful expressions and complete phrases, taking notes and composing “memory cards” with useful words and expressions, by literally surrounding yourself with the language you want to learn. This is exactly why the method of learning a foreign language using this language alone proves much more effective. If the teacher uses your native language during lessons, this way or another you will count on him or her to understand you thus keeping you within your comfort zone. This will slow the learning process down, the results will leave much to be desired and you will lack confidence speaking the language you are learning. Our experienced teachers, qualified philologists and training specialists will help you speak your target language earlier than you expected.
