Learning Languages the Creative Way

Adult Classes

  •  

Conversational

Our conversational classes are practical and teach the language skills you need in order to converse comfortably in everyday situations.

Our teaching approach is directed towards different functions of the language and specific situations of practical speech and communication. Language courses are clearly and systematically structured. The degree of difficulty of the learning programs progresses from the very easy to the more difficult and from simple phrases to more complex ones. Programs are designed so that students are challenged and encouraged to advance in the learning process while developing their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. Grammar is integrated in a lively way in order to enhance the students' ability to understand the structure of the language.

The dynamic, creative and colorful environment at LanguageArts helps the students to build up their confidence and encourage them to interact with the teacher and fellow students in the language being learnt. Aspects of culture and customs are an integrated part of the learning process, widening the students' awareness and enabling them to interact in a new, global neighborhood.

Travel

Dear Travelers,

If you are thinking of going on a holiday trip and you want to learn some basics of a particular language effectively, we would like to help you in your endeavors.

Your efforts to learn some basic expressions will open many hearts and doors and therefore it will truly enrich your travel experiences.

In addition, some alternate language skills in reading, speaking and listening can become very handy if you end up in a rural area where English is not the predominant language spoken.

In our travel classes you will learn about different conversation topics relevant to travel. We use a simplified approach to teach the new language. The program does not go into the complexity of language structures, as our regular group classes do, but you will acquire enough knowledge in order to be able to read and understand simple communications as well as attain enough flexibility to construct simple phrases on your own. Throughout the class sessions our teachers will integrate interesting anecdotal information about the country, its people and culture, which will help you in your travel preparations and increase the excitement for your upcoming travel adventure.

Classes are offered in Chinese, Croatian, Czech, English, Farsi, French, German, Hindi
Indonesian, Japanese, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish.
Our Travel workshops are offered as a series of 5 sessions, each session consisting of a one-hour class which can be scheduled at your convenience. Please feel free to contact us at any time if you have any questions.

Boa viagem, gute Reise, bon voyage & ... Have a good trip.
