Technique

 

Our language coaches have personally experienced learning a second language or living and working in other countries with other cultures. We use a highly communicative, student-centered approach which allows students to speak 50-70% or more during lessons. Students co-create their language learning plan with their language coach, set goals, provide ongoing feedback to their coach, and receive on-going evaluation. We teach intercultural awareness and create learning opportunities outside the classroom.

Adapting to unfamiliar foreign cultures, such as a new educational, medical or housing situation, is often challenging. Our program offers support outside the classroom to address these challenges of living and working in a foreign country at no additional cost.
