Learning a foreign language can often be challenging, but it all depends on attitude.

01

BE PATIENT WITH YOURSELF

This is not a race; focus on quality rather than quantity.  Always keep in mind that little is better than nothing at all! Think of how long it takes little kids to learn their first language: YEARS of immersion and they will make mistakes for a long time. At the beginning stage of learning, do not get frustrated if you cannot communicate the way you want. Start thinking of yourself as a toddler: you want to be understood and functional in the foreign language even if you do not speak perfectly.

02

DO NOT BE AFRAID TO ASK QUESTIONS

We are here to help you! Questions are always welcome.

03

MAKE ERRORS COUNT FOR YOU INSTEAD OF AGAINST YOU

The only way to learn to do something right is to make mistakes. Start accepting the fact that you will make mistakes, many mistakes.  Your teachers will be very understanding: it is a judgment free zone, you are here to learn so nobody is expecting you to be perfect.

04

RELAX AND HAVE FUN

Learning a language can definitely be a lot of fun.  In our group classes you will meet a lot of interesting people who share the same curiosity about life and culture as you. Besides, it is a great way to keep your brain active! Remember that it’s the journey that matters, not the destination!!!
