LEARN SPANISH! EXERCISE YOUR BRAIN!
SIF has its own system, Brain Path Language®, or BPL®, to help learners use their brains more efficiently. Our students find that learning with BPL® alleviates the fear and frustration usually associated with learning a second language. Instead, they can have a dynamic, real, and successful experience.
There are many advantages to forming your own group class.
- You choose the members of the group; friends, family, neighbors; whatever works for you.
- You choose the time and location of the class; your home, a library, or at our language school.
- It’s proven that classes will stay together for a longer period of time because the relationships are already established.
- Students who are well acquainted tend to practice more and learn faster.
- It’s a wise investment because the goal of any class is to gain fluency.
Exercise your brain!
First things first! Learn HOW to learn the language with our new learning methodology, Brain Path Language® System (BPL®). Explore how the brain works and how new neural pathways begin to be formed to acquire and store the new language. Start to exercise your brain today as you create new pathways. You will learn vocabulary phrases while you begin to construct sentences.
Practice what you’ve learned!
Wiring your brain to new learning requires practice. Continue to construct conversations as you learn more about BPL®. Make introductions, express feelings, ask questions and hold a basic conversation about everyday situations. Grow your vocabulary and acquire over 1,000 words, 50 present tense verbs, and the basic tools of grammar to construct sentences. Talk about leisure activities, the weather and emergencies.
Stimulate your senses!
Sensory integration is key to brain development. Using all of your senses while learning a new language will help you retain and access new information so that it becomes automatic and natural. Develop a greater attention span and focus on the Hispanic culture as you participate in more complex conversations, read reports, letters and speak your mind!
Express yourself with confidence!
Short-term memory develops into long-term memory, enhancing your confidence in speaking a new language. Now you can express your opinions and ideas without using English! Make short summaries of readings, tell stories, discuss various topics, read/discuss a short book, and more!
Expand your learning!
Your curiosity is sharpened and expanded in a new way. You’ll feel excited and confident at your progress as you advance to new levels. Receive a complete review of grammar usage & communication; learn more about the culture/history/geography of the countries in the Spanish-speaking world. Works of Spanish literature are introduced.
Recent scientific findings of neuroplasticity show that your brain can create new connections at any age! You become a natural explorer and your spectrum of language experiences broadens even more. You will express yourself with expanded fluency and sophistication. Converse with your class about current events, write about general topics, make presentations in Spanish, participate in social/career related activities and read/write/discuss South American literature.
