Process Learning Approach
Language learning is a cycle of instruction, practice, feedback and improvement. Through this approach you gain greater language ability and confidence with every lesson.
Learner as a Whole Person
Our personalized instruction is designed to meet your specific needs, ability, and goals. We also know that language learning can at times be difficult. You will learn and apply mindfulness techniques that will help you focus, relax, and enjoy the language learning process.
Language learning opens opportunities to connect and engage with the world. Culture greatly shapes our expectations of how to communicate and behave. We focus on helping you to develop your cultural intelligence (CQ) to better understand and more effectively interact with people of diverse experiences, cultures and perspectives.
