A language is simply a way of communicating, but learning a language includes many parts – the grammar and structure, the vocabulary, the cultural context, the flexibility it has, and creativity it allows. The million-dollar question is how does someone go about learning a new language, especially as an adult? The answer is quite simple. Interest, practice, and guidance.
In my experience teaching English in Pamplona, most people I’ve encountered have a decent grasp of grammar and vocabulary, but many are blocked by years of mistakes, a sense of obligation to learn the language instead of real interest, and a lack of opportunities to practice using it. English classes at Poise will address these problems.
Poise offers creative classes to help generate interest, an interactive style to promote practicing and really using the language, and guidance for when there are doubts. Each type of class has its own objectives, but the overall goal is to make English come alive for students, to make it something that is more than just a subject from school.
As a student of language myself, I’ve always learned the most when I found a topic that interests me and used it as a vehicle to improve my language skills.
