The Magic Behind Learning Your New Language:

By Sheree M. Mitchell, M.A.

Different people have different ideas about how language is acquired. We’ve heard (and tried) them all, but what we use in our tailor-made language immersion programs is what actually works. We’ll explain the different elements below:


80% Natural Approach-- Think back to when your parents taught you English as a child. They did so by actually speaking to you in English. This method is also very effective when you are learning a new language.      

We believe that the primary purpose of language is to communicate. From the first day of the program, we're working on building your listening, reading, writing and speaking skills as quickly as possible.   

Our teachers are all well-trained in second language instruction and have extensive experience helping people from around the globe make major breakthroughs in learning new languages. 

You'll quickly find that the combination of taking classes and living with a host family creates the optimal language-learning environment.  At "school" you'll get the language skills tailored to your personal or professional needs while at "home" with your host family you'll enhance your ability to carry on conversations about everyday topics.

20% Grammar Instruction -- If you read the previous paragraphs and got a little nervous, we've got you covered.  A good old-fashioned grammar lesson every now and then is also included!
