| Individual students can choose between:
- GROUP CLASSES (approx. 7 students) which focus mainly on
GENERAL COMMUNICATION in the language.
- ONE-TO-ONE CLASSES in which a personalised syllabus is defined
according to individual needs.
First of all, you will take an initial test, free of charge,
to ascertain your level of knowledge of the language and the
aims to pursue. If you opt to join one of our groups, you
will be placed in a group adapted to your initial level of
knowledge and age group. We have a wide spectrum of groups,
which enables us to offer the best possible service, in line
with two basic quality criteria: pupils are included in a
well-adapted group depending on level and age.
FOR INSTITUTIONS AND COMPANIES
| INLINGUA INTERNACIONAL has recently renewed the majority of
its teaching materials, which means that we have student work
books, text books and the latest CDs for nearly all levels
of the languages we teach, both at basic language and specialisation
level. This material is complemented by specialisation folders
that are related to the specific activity of each company
we work for.
The cost of services to companies is assessed according to
the volume, level of specialisation and timetables needed
for the requested programme.
DURATION OF PROGRAMMES:
Students are given recommendations at all times depending
on the starting level, targets and frequency of attendance.
The programme can be interrupted by either party at the end
of each month, with a written notice period of 15 days.
FOR CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS
| PREJUNIOR PROGRAMME from 5-6 years of age:
This is based on an introduction and development of the language
using pictures and visual stimulation with specialised material.
JUNIOR PROGRAMME from 7-8 years of age:
This combines the child's progress in reading and writing
with the native teacher, text books, games, exercises in oral
comprehension and exercises in listening comprehension (with
cassettes). The text books have a story line based on characters
that appeal to our younger scholars.
THE BEST TIME TO LEARN A LANGUAGE IS DURING CHILDHOOD! LEARNING
| Our courses are based on our own method: THE inlingua METHOD.
|| We use our own method for our courses, the inlingua METHOD.
This is a direct method, the main principles.
Basic principles of our direct method:
· Only the language studied is spoken.
· Learning through conversation.
· Examples are the best explanation.
· Teach the students to speak correctly.
· Achieve a good atmosphere.
· Give students the possibility to experiment.
· Correct idiomatic errors.
· Varied teaching.
At inlingua we use exclusively the target language, which
obliges our students to use the language they are learning
naturally, progressing systematically.
| You will always learn grammatical structures and vocabulary
in a context that will enable you to put them into practice
Courses are given to a limited number of pupils or in one-to-one
classes. Learning a language as part of a group is more natural
and doing this in an environment of trust is vital.
What is the advantage of the inlingua method? At inlingua,
you will speak the new language right from the start.
| The teachers that work at inlingua are native professionals
chosen not just because of their curriculum vitae, but also
because of their teaching abilities, personal qualities and
experience. All of them receive intensive training in our
method and are obliged to take regular and ongoing courses.
Our teachers are a guarantee of quality.
AND BACKUP MATERIAL
| We use our own teaching material in our classes, which is
constantly updated at our headquarters in Bern.
inlingua language material is progressive, selected and specialised
depending on each requirement: books and CDs for everyday
language, company language (APP), professional language (specialisation
folders), books and folders for children.
Books, exercises, tapes, transparencies, cd-rom, videos, games,
drawings, items that are used during the different stages
of the class to offer an enjoyable and effective learning
New: on-line back-up exercises.
Our method, our material and our teachers are the perfect
combination for you to achieve you goal: TO LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE.
