Today we are going to deal with these two, let’s say “methods” or just teaching approaches. Both are very effective but in the right moment and different for each learner. Personal language training or group learning. Learning Spanish in Sevilla with us is full of possibilities. It is the student who decides how to learn or approach the target language.
Group learning is very effective for the first steps in the target language, it means, for beginners. It’s great for many reasons but mainly for improving the interaction in class. Despite, big groups are not very recommendable because each student may have the opportunity of practicing in every session. It is a good way of keeping track of students motivation. In their learning process, they need to feel comfortable with their mistakes and doubts. Seeing it in others will help each student’s confidence.
But, once we have acquired most of the grammar concepts, some vocabulary and we are able to speak and produce in a more or less operative way, Personal language training is the solution for our definitive success. There is a point in which we have to make the target language something of our own as we do with our mother tongue (specially in adults). We need to see the world, our job and our social relationships through the language we are learning. This is called language awareness and what is really going to take us to an almost bilingual level.
So, taken to this point, the secret formula of success is nothing but putting our practice into a real use. The more real, the better results. Simple as that. Global Language Training offers that to those students in that stage.
