WHY DO I STUDY SPANISH?

WHAT TO EXPECT


​Starting from the first session, facilitators introduce the language through low risk conversations. They allow multiple opportunities to understand the language through the use of strategies that include visual aids, actions, photographs, and gestures. The informal small group setting encourages learners to get to know each other, and ultimately feel comfortable using the language with their peers/colleagues. Interpersonal skills are a priority, and professionals further develop these skills at every session. Our learners gain access to real world opportunities. They interact and practice speaking with other professionals in the Lehigh Valley who share the love of language.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM


Spanish language development for adults is designed to meet the needs of working professionals and members of the Lehigh Valley community who want to increase their linguistic and cultural competence.

OUR APPROACH


Our professional development program follows a natural approach to learning as developed by linguists Stephen Krashen and Tracy Terrell. This approach focuses on "comprehensible input." When learners are exposed to this input in low-anxiety contexts, acquisition of the target language is inevitable.

Personal Goals

Communication with the rest of the world opens opportunities for travel and personal enjoyment. 

Professional Development

Members of various fields such as medicine, law, and education see language as a way to enhance their services.
