Learn Language in ESL for a Richly Rewarding Experience.
It is interesting to see how some enthusiasts get together and promote learning and at the same time put in some e-commerce as well to generate revenues for themselves and to run the website. Dedicated enthusiasts running such websites offer free information and knowledge on a variety of subjects.
Language learning is one of them. One can come across websites that offer free online lessons, links to language schools and also sell a few related products. These websites can be quite interesting in the variety of learning tools and information they post to encourage people. Some even offer a few free lessons. You can get a good idea of what is involved in learning a language.
If you are serious about learning a language you may try online lessons or join a language school. Even today we find language schools following the old textbook routine or at best incorporating audio visual methods of teaching. Even though it is widely accepted t hat immersive learning is far more rewarding, very few schools are actually interested to go that route or change their curriculum to make it more interesting for students. That is one thing. The other thing is that courseware is standard and you can find a class with junior students and those over 50 following the same courseware. Even though there
have been radical changes in teaching methods, very few have adopted the changes.
ESL Language School is one name that comes to mind when one thinks of learning languages the modern way. Engaged in language teaching since 50 years, ESL has constantly refined techniques, courseware and teaching methods to be contemporary or even ahead of times. Learn language in ESL and note the difference. For one, the courseware is uniform, whether you learn Spanish in Spain or in far off Colombia. The process of learning is interactive, full of fun and mixed with role playing and interaction between students. Then there are leisure time activities that serve as extensions to classroom instructions. The focus is on conversation, communication and practice in real life situations.
Taking it a step further, ESL, through its partner schools located across Europe offers French, German, Italian and English language courses designed for juniors, for teens, for adults, for professionals and
for those over 50 along with options on culture and history. Each age group finds the structured and customized courses comfortable and convenient and that is why most of them choose to go beyond the basics. Who else but ESL would come up with the novel idea of summer camps for kids in partner schools in Germany, France and Switzerland? It is in line with their concept of leisure and learning meshing in a rewarding union.
Traditional minded people may say the old method is still the best but when you learn language in ESL the way they have designed it, the delightful, experiential difference will be something that grows on you. You cannot but agree that immersion and enjoyment are great motivators when it comes to learning. Brain activity, attention span and focus increase when learners enjoy the process. As you will when you do it the ESL way.
