Accent Modification Program
This program is designed for those with foreign accents or native speakers with heavy regional accents and focuses on clarifying specific sounds, developing an ear for the language’s rhythm, and correctly applying intonation and stress.
THE INLINGUA METHOD
Our method employs simple linguistic means to convey vocabulary and grammar in carefully planned progression:
- Showing an actual object or a picture
- Gesture and mime
- Association of ideas
You’ll learn by speaking. This is why our games of questions and answers form one of our most important teaching techniques. Have the courage to make mistakes – otherwise, the teacher can’t correct you!
Early beginners’ lessons are at first exclusively oral. This is to attune your ear to the new language and to help you imitate its sounds. During these first few lessons you should neither read nor write, since at this stage any differences between the sound and the look of the language could be confusing.
Each lesson consists of two main parts, the first being oral introduction to new vocabulary and grammar. The material covered orally will then be read and reinforced with oral and written exercises. There are no translation classes, except in the upper level of our school.
Do your homework conscientiously and use the exercises as a basis for further work at home, particularly to improve your written language skills. We wish you every success in a pleasant learning atmosphere!
Private or Semi-Private Settings
One-on-one, with family, co-workers or friends. Weekdays, weekends, or evenings…your home, your office or our office…classes from 2 lessons to a full day…it’s your choice!
Along with being affordable, group classes can be a lot of fun! We limit group classes to no more than five students, to encourage interaction and make sure nobody is left behind. As you and your fellow students go through drills and usage together, your skills will improve, you’ll make new friends and you’ll feel more relaxed using the new language.
