Philolingua Language School employs an intuitive, conversational style of teaching to quickly establish fluency and build practical vocabulary in group classes of four to eight students. An initial consultation determines language abilities and places each student in an appropriate class, where a foreign-born instructor shares native speaking skills in real-life situations, such as asking for directions or demanding an entree not listed on a menu. Groupon pupils can immerse themselves in a linguistic challenge ranging from youth through advanced levels in Spanish, French, English, German, Italian, or Catalan. Students who need more flexible schedules can hone their speaking skills in online classes that connect them with a live teacher to go over assignments and debate the origins of archaic words.
Philolingua Language School
Barcelona-born Philolingua Language School founder Jordi Lluch knows what it's like to learn a foreign language. After extensive linguistics studies and more than 23 years teaching six languages through Berlitz language school's various locations, Lluch established Philolingua. Throughout his years as both student and teacher, he worked to synthesize a learning approach that would mimic the way children pick up their first language: hearing it spoken, responding back, and getting a feel for grammar through intensive practice. The school's resulting approach aims to quickly establish fluency and build practical vocabulary. Using an intuitive, conversational style, a foreign-born instructor shares native speaking skills for real-life situations, such as asking for directions or demanding an entree not listed on a menu.
