In the Spanish academy we are all language lovers. All our team members went through the process of learning foreign languages. Hence, we know how hard can it be but also how gratifying it is!
Motivation and enthusiasm is a must while learning a language, and it is our job to boost yours!
That’s why we follow the most professional standards along with the most fun and efficient approach. Our founders have tried several teaching methods on their previous experiences. And no doubt that the best one is the : Communicative Language Teaching (CLT).
With this approach, learning language means to communicate real meaning.
Students will learn all aspects of the language such as grammar, vocabulary and comprehension through a high interactive lessons
The CLT approach follows a few basic foundations:
Focuses on learning through interaction in the target language.
It only uses authentic texts for every learning situation.
It uses learner’s personal experiences as a supporting elements for the learning..
Some of the activities are: role-play, interviews, information gap tasks, opinion gap tasks, games, language exchanges, surveys, and pair-work.
At this age, toddlers learn best by being immersed in the language, and imitating their teachers and friends through playgroups. They have such a great time playing games, singing songs and making crafts, they don’t realize they’re learning one of the most important languages in the world!
