We're passionate about language learning. That's why we're constantly reviewing the latest trends and methodology in the field. Academic staff from every LSI school participate in the research and development of our programmes. We ensure that the latest theories of language learning are considered and evaluated throughout our centres.
Language Immersion: At LSI we believe that the best way to learn a language is to study in the country where the language is spoken. We want you to immerse yourself in the culture and truly ?live the language'. This is the most efficient and satisfying way to learn the language, and remains at the core of LSI's language learning system.
Latest Materials: We're constantly reviewing the latest materials available for language learning. We provide you with what our academic team have identified as being the very best course books currently available for your level. We are also committed to providing the latest technology inside the classroom. We utilise the most cutting edge audio, video and web based resources.
Quality Teachers: We understand that our students' single most identifiable measure of programme quality is the teacher. That's why at LSI we only work with the very best teachers; experienced, highly motivated and qualified with country specific teaching credentials.
E-LSI (E-Learning from LSI): Our custom built on line learning system works alongside our classes to help you maximise your time with us. Through your unique log in, you can access your test scores, prepare for and record your 1-2-1 tutorials with your teacher and access a wealth of further learning resources to supplement and extend your in class learning.
Your test results can also be analyzed to provide unique learning objectives for you, giving you the chance to study exactly what you need in order to progress. E-LSI also provides a forum for discussion with classmates and teachers, where you can post your work, collaborate and enhance your learning experience.
