Frequently Asked Questions
We created it. We love how the word Langopoly® rolls around in your mouth. Think fun and effective Spanish language instruction. Then think: Langopoly®.
Three elements comprise the Langopoly® language learning experience:
1. Fun and Effective
Langopoly® recruits talented language instructors to deliver the services of our company. Our instructors are not only technically competent in the Spanish language, but they also possess a passion for teaching and a desire to make a difference in the lives of others. This helps to ensure that our clients receive fun and effective Spanish language instruction.
2. Real World language Skills
Langopoly® language instruction places an emphasis on the conversational use of a language. Our curriculum is shaped by foundational language skills and the participants' interests and learning objectives.
3. Personalized Classes
Langopoly® language instruction is generally structured in a group setting. (This does not apply to our private one-to-one language instruction services.) The deliberately small size of the Langopoly® learning group lends itself to a personalized language learning experience.
A Langopoly® language instructor leads our group programs and private instruction engagements.
A diversity of backgrounds is what makes our instructors so unique and distinctive. Typically, they are either native or near-native speakers. Many of them hold either a Master's or Doctorate degree in the Spanish language. We recruit instructors from leading colleges and universities, as well as both private and public secondary schools. Our instructors have traveled the world or, by virtue of their country of origin, are able to share their personal cross-cultural experiences with participants. A common denominator that rests with all our instructors includes a high degree of energy, an excitement for teaching, and a shared value for serving our customers.
This is not an easy question. A lot of language learning depends on the effort that you, the student, put into using the language. We design our programs to give you a solid foundation to speak the Spanish language in your everyday life. Our goal is to provide you with the tools to continue learning the Spanish language on your own.
Here are our thoughts: Children are naturally curious and consequently are able to quickly learn and retain a second language. Children who gain some familiarity with a second language find it easier to continue learning the language later in life. Children who are exposed to multiple languages are said to perform better on standardized tests, such as the SAT and ACT. These points alone are sound arguments to support Spanish language instruction for children. Yet, there are other reasons why parents and academic administrators should expose children to world languages.
Let's consider the world children live in today and undoubtedly the world that children will encounter in the future. We find a community marked by rapid change and linkages among people of diverse backgrounds and cultures. Changing world demographics, boundless global telecommunications, and booming worldwide travel shape the social landscape. With this dynamic as a backdrop, it is all the more important for our young adults of tomorrow to learn how to communicate in a second, if not a third language.
The benefits of broadening one's language skills are tremendous and serve to open many doors -- today and tomorrow, at home and abroad, professionally and personally.
Activity-based learning, which may include songs, puppetry, games, art projects, and age appropriate writing assignments.
