With "AMIGOS" the differences in LANGUAGE or CULTURES won't be a barrier for your communication anymore!
AMIGOS is not just a language school, our target is to TEACH COMMUNICATION SKILLS in INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENTS. Communication is the main target of any language but, unfortunately, sometimes even if you can read, write, speak or understand a language, the communication is still not good enough. Maybe you are wondering - How can it happen? You will find the answer to this question just thinking about the way you learnt your native language. Did you start studying grammar while being a baby? For sure not, we simply experienced the need of transfering some information and we learnt to do it just listening and repeating what other people are saying.
It means we FIRSTLY learnt how to COMMUNICATE and only AFTERWARDS how to read, write or speak according to the GRAMMAR rules, and never in the other way around. This is exactly the main philosophy of "AMIGOS", to make our pupils learning the communication as a native would do it, without splitting the learning process in different parts (reading, writting, listening, etc) but just taking it as a whole.
HOW TO GET IT? Traditionally, there are two main methodologies to teach communication skills in a foreign language:
-Learning out of the language environmet - based on different kind of communication exercises focused on specified topics and oriented to develop and improve certain skills in the pupil
-Learning in the language environment - based on the usage of the language within a real native situation (not always correct according to grammar rules)
"AMIGOS" offers a third new alternative, based on the combination of the most efficient parts of the two classical methodologies. The result is an innovative way to learn a foreign language, following the requirements of the REAL LIFE but, at the same time, adapted to the INDIVIDUAL REQUIREMENTS of each student.
