inlingua is a language training organization founded in Bern, Switzerland in 1968. Since then, inlingua has expanded immensely; we operate 329 schools in 39 countries in 5 continents.
All our centers have a highly qualified faculty for language training and communicative teaching materials specifically designed for our method. We also offer flexible finely-tuned training plans adapted to our clients’ priorities and needs.
While acknowledging the importance of grammar rules and theory, inlingua recognizes that the true meaning of “I know language x” is “I can speak and understand language x”. As such, our emphasis is on oral communication: speaking and listening. inlingua Córdoba’s motto is se aprende a hablar hablando or one learns how to speak by speaking
Our methodology is centered on the 3 Ps:
Reduced class size (8 student maximum) ensures that all students have the opportunity to speak and participate. Teacher-Talking-Time (TTT) is kept to a minimum and new vocabulary and structures are always elicited before fed; they are always exemplified before/instead of being overtly explained in a top-down fashion.
