Foreign Language Immersion Programs

 

Immersion programs are designed to teach the equivalent of levels 1 to 5 of the Institute's regular core programs in one 6-week or 4-week, 90-hour sessions. Classes meet Monday through Friday, 3 hours a day in 6-week programs/4.5 hours a day in 4-week programs).

 

The main goal of these programs, which meet in small classes of 4 to 12, is to help students, from day one, to increase confidence in their ability to use their new language in a wide range of real-life situations and improve their oral skills as they progress from level to level.

 

Upon completion of an intensive or an immersion program, students can expect to feel comfortable speaking in a variety of situations and to have gained a solid understanding of the grammatical, structural and cultural aspects of the language.

 

Immersion Programs can be customized and offered privately or semi-privately. A customized course meets for 40 hours per week, Monday through Friday, and is normally organized in one- to eight-week sessions. The programs are taught by a team of two to four instructors, who carefully select materials and plan lessons to effectively meet student goals and individual learning style. Since these are private programs, they may begin at any time with a minimum of two weeks' notice.

 

We also organize private programs of fewer than 40 hours per week.

 

Immersion programs are regularly offered in Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Japanese. Additional languages are available in response to demand.

Private
Programs

Private instruction offers students an opportunity to work one-on-one with an instructor at their own pace. The instructor carefully selects materials and plans lessons to effectively meet the student's goals and individual learning style.

Private programs offer a flexible schedule and a customized curriculum. A minimum of 20 hours of instruction with one or two classes (each 90 or 120 minutes) per week is the suggested module, but dates, times and content can be arranged according to your requirement.
