We can adjust our programme any time to our clients’ wishes and needs and we can hold lessons both in our office or in-company. We realise that work schedules often change and people may not be able to plan their programme very much in advance. This is why we offer flexible language development programmes. These part-time courses are designed to fit around the client and his or her changing work commitments. It allows them to learn a foreign language in the time that they have available”.
Marcus Evans Linguarama’s method of teaching comprises of the exclusive use of native speaking teachers, an elaborate intake procedure and a clear planning process to reach key objectives. “These key objectives vary from person to person. People have a variety of reasons for wanting to learn a language: communicating effectively with colleagues or clients, writing letters, obtaining information, listening to others or conversing socially.”
One of the most important aspects of their training method is the ‘learning by doing’ principle. “A language is mastered by speaking it. By exploring it, rather than passively receiving it through listening and reading, one tends to learn a lot more and quicker. Language is not an end in itself, but a means of successful communication. Therefore, we include cultural insights in our programmes as well in order to further promote successful communication.”
