We teach languages (English and Spanish) through the language arts:
...effective communication in cross-cultural settings
While the emphasis is on formal English/Spanish, we also teach students about informal conversation.
Each course has:
...40 hours of classroom instruction
...small groups (no more than 10)
...highly qualified, successful teachers who are also native speakers)
The program is not a survival English or survival Spanish program; our goal is for the students to become comfortable using the target language and to use it well. To that end, the program of studies offers 21 levels/courses in each language.
We realize that our students work in international businesses, so we expose the student to experiences with native and non-native speakers of English (Americas, Asia, Europe, Africa and south Pacific). In our Spanish courses, we expose the student to the possible accents and dialect differences that they will encounter in Latin America and Spain.
We can offer private classes beginning any time of the year and at any time of the day or evening; please contact Mr. Matthews.
Our school uses the criteria proposed by the American Association of Teachers of Foreign Languages for its levels, evaluations and course content.
