Virtual Classroom for Students
Courses take place online in a virtual Zoom Classroom with a live instructor. Classes function like a traditional classroom – including the ability to group students into cooperative learning teams. Our focus is on experiencing the language through the five senses and making sure students learn about the people who speak the language! Our mission in our courses is to promote human connections.

Translation does not work.
We do not use translation — substituting a foreign word for an English word — but rather focus on whole language acquisition and communication. Translation breaks the connections in the brain that are being created and creates reliance on your native language to speak the new language. Translation hinders fluency because it creates a barrier for the learner to be able to think in the new language.
