Our Teaching Philosophy
At ILSC, we have three key beliefs that guide our teaching philosophy.
Learning works better when it is student-centered: We combine a set curriculum with the flexibility to accommodate each student’s special interests and learning needs. You’ll be motivated to learn about things that personally interest you.
Learning works faster when it is made part of the experiences of daily life: Immersion learning through role-playing, field trips, and group learning activities helps you integrate the language more quickly.
People learn best when they are confident, at ease and happy: At ILSC, you’ll be part of a community of staff, teachers, and fellow students who will support your success on a fantastic learning adventure.
