What is a course in language studies?  A course in this area may be taught online or in a classroom setting, and it may be conducted in a country where the language is commonly spoken. The main purpose of the course is to improve the class’s ability to speak, write or communicate in a particular language. The course may emphasize a particular area of language skills, such as spoken or written language or the specific vocabulary of a type of work environment.

Students who enroll in a course of language studies typically learn to speak and write more effectively in a non-native language, an important skill for gaining work in another country. They may also learn to better understand the cultural customs of a foreign country, allowing for better integration at work and at home.

The expenses of a language course depend on a variety of factors, including the country of study and the duration of the program. Interested scholars should contact each school to learn more about the costs of each course option.

Studying English is like learning to play a musical instrument. Whether you want to learn how to speak English or how to improve reading

English, the more you practice - especially spoken English, the better you get at all the other skills. It's a simple principle. It's still a lot of work, but if you follow that, you will be successful.

Most ESL classes spend too much time learning English grammar. It's true that grammar is important, but learning language is like learning to swim. You can't do it by reading a book -- you have to practice!

GEOS' ESL courses are designed to give students more practice. GEOS students have English classes every day for just Speaking and Listening. Because GEOS has more English speaking classes, our students learn English faster. ... [-]

Introduction

Among the new perspectives that must be considered in an ELE course is the growing interest in the presence of culture in the programs, according to the conviction that learning a language without reference to the community that speaks it is a difficult task and little enriching. The communicative approach, which currently seems to be the most effective in language learning, requires the insertion of the cultural since it is a didactic orientation that takes into account the idea that not only linguistic competence is important, but also also extra-linguistic competition. What we intend is to offer students a program where cultural content serves as a starting point or platform for the presentation of the linguistic system. Even more when the student ventures to learn a language in the target country, he is immersed in a process of personal enrichment in the deepest sense; is interested in the culture of the country and therefore we must provide all the means to understand it. It is a context of total immersion. In the classes within the classroom, from the beginning, essential socio-cultural contents are introduced to satisfy immediate needs in the society in which the students are immersed. These contents also act as conversation topics, in this way it is a forum for socio-cultural debate in a round trip that goes from language to culture and from culture to language. Classes outside the classroom, guided visits to representative elements of the province, both signs of the past and samples of the... [-]
