1. Intensive Language Programs:
Intensive programs are an ideal way to learn a new language. Students' motivation and desire to learn are high and there are no distractions. We use a very direct conversational method imbedding the information about grammar and pronunciation. The student is encouraged to use the language naturally and immediately.
2. Easy-pace language Programs:
The easy-pace course allows a student to progress over a period of several weeks.
We use two tracks for each program:
1. The specific information the students need to learn: medical, legal. technical etc.
2. The general information anyone learning a language needs. (common vocabulary, grammar etc.)
3. The "Learn HowTo Learn a Foreign Language" Course:
After learning and teaching for more than thirty years, Jean-Paul has extracted powerful techniques for learning a language. They are simple but highly effective..
We have developed a one-day course that teaches these principles. It will immediately enhance your ability to absorb a language efficiently and enjoyably.
Would you compete in a new sport without training for it? Languages are learned very much like a physical discipline. They require both understanding and physical awareness/skill.
