Tips how to study a language

Before you start learning a language, choose the right teacher. He/she has a huge part to play in learning the language. People learn from people, not from textbooks…

Ask for references for the teacher. If you can afford one-to-one tutoring, it is the best and the most effective. Languages need to be used, not simply learned. That’s why there should be a lot of speaking and communication in class to practice what is being taught.
If you feel awkward and shy to speak, let me tell you this: YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!! People feel very much so when they need to speak… But speaking is a skill that takes time to develop… Start speaking, even if you make mistakes – people learn best from their mistakes…

In order to learn something new – no matter whether it’s grammar or vocabulary, one needs to repeat it over and over at least 14 times (this is what psychologists keep telling 🙂 And by repeating I mean in different context. So don’t feel embarrassed to write a word down again and again or to get back to the same grammar point – it just takes time to get things from your short-term memory into the long-term one…

And let me tell you this: There is no such thing as ”I can’t learn the language!” It’s a matter of right or wrong methods, approach and attitude. Some achieve results with more effort, others with less… But EVERYONE CAN learn a language if they don’t give up.

How do you feel when you buy clothes from the department store? They need adjusting, always make wrinkles here and there, they don’t fit perfectly well. Perhaps there can never be a one-size-fits-all design that’s perfect for all. It is so different when you go to the boutique and they tailor the clothes for you to fit you perfectly well…

Today more and more people spend a lot of time online. What do you say if you can study online and save the commuting, driving, going places?… How about being taught by an experienced teacher who lives away from your city but thanks to great technologies, can be within your reach?

In our online sessions we have video and audio, we write and read and talk, using a webinar platform. It feels the same as if we were together but we are saving time and money.

We include all activities and language skills. The Share-screen option helps use software that we have installed on our computers and you don’t need to buy it. Then you have a recording that you can watch as many times as you wish which speeds the process of learning.

We tailor-make a curriculum for you, taking into account all your personal needs and requirements. Because it’s you who really matters…

And you feel good… And it fits you well… 🙂
