Our unique concept
is what makes us so special
Learning is co-constructed through the interaction between the learners, the instructor and guest collaborators.
Conversation is central and gives our learners the chance to analyze, understand, practice and internalize the language.
Through different tasks, language learning is a process where language emerges.
Activities must involve real-world problems.
Learners should have fun and enjoy the process.
Learners are encouraged to propose, select, create and share content.
Learners are empowered to choose and direct their own learning.
Learners have a voice and their needs, interests and expectations guide the curriculum.
Lessons are directed by the learners, not the trainers.
The instructor's role is to optimize language learning, the environment, identify the potential to learn and to direct attention to any learning opportunity.
The instructor motivates learners to decide the curriculum's content and involves them in material creation and selection.
Instructors take learner goals/needs/interests and transform them into a comprehensive & effective curriculum with relatable sessions.
Through a friendly and open environment, learners are not afraid to use to the language or to make mistakes.
The interaction between learners & instructors and other members of the community is highly encouraged and considered key to language learning.
The community that surrounds our school provides with endless learning opportunities and invaluable resources.
