The inlingua Method

No More False Starts or Unsuccessful Attempts

Have you tried to learn a language before?
Was it an unpleasant process where you memorized vocabulary and grammatical rules such as how to conjugate verbs?
When you finally got a chance to speak the language, was it hard to say more than a few words or string together a sentence?
If this sounds like your experience (or you avoided learning a language altogether) –
You Are Not Alone!

Many people who come to inlingua have had unsuccessful attempts at learning a language in the past due to outmoded, “tried and true” language learning techniques. That’s why we developed the unique inlingua method to help you learn a new language – quickly, painlessly, and successfully.

A Dynamic and Practical Approach

The proven inlingua method uses a dynamic and practical approach to learning a language – an approach that focuses on the functional aspects of a language, not the dry, technical details. Rather than memorizing long lists of vocabulary words or reverting to word-for-word translation, you will gain skills in practical, real-world situations and be personally coached on accuracy, fluency, and pronunciation. 
Our method encourages you to have fun and experiment with the language, so that you can figure out its patterns for yourself and progress quickly in your proficiency. We also make sure that speaking, listening, writing, and reading skills are integrated into our technique so that you end up with a natural, organic feel for the language as a whole. And, unlike self-teaching tools, our live instructors include all the subtle but critical nuances such as culture, etiquette, and appropriateness in every lesson plan.
