What makes Fuente Languages different to other language tuition companies is the unique way we teach languages.
We use our own methodology when teaching languages and we break down the learning process into different stages. We understand that the main aim of any language learner is to be able to speak and understand the language as quickly as possible, so the first stage is to give you the most useful words in the foreign language and show you how to put them together into phrases. This gets you speaking straight away and you'll be learning to say things you're actually going to need to say.
Then, once you’ve grasped the fundamentals (which won’t take very long) we begin to add structure to the language. The structure of any language is called its ‘grammar’ and we explain all this in a simple and easy to understand manner, and by knowing the structure you’ll be able to talk about anything you want. At the same time we’ll constantly be adding new vocabulary and showing you techniques to remember it all.
The most important part of learning a language, which separates it from any other subject, is to learn how to make it become second nature. We’ve developed various techniques, which we call the “Pillars of Communication”, and these are very useful in showing you how to make speaking the foreign language into a reflex action meaning you’ll be able to say what you want to say without having to think about how to say it. The aim of the “Pillars of Communication” techniques is to build proficiency to a high enough level that you’ll be able to speak in Spanish, French, German, Italian or Portuguese just as you do in English. Some of these techniques include “linking”, which is where you’ll learn to link certain groups of words together to help you speak more quickly. Another is “motors” this technique helps you reach fluency fast. And an extremely useful technique is one called “chunking”, which will help you to tune your ear into the intonation, rhythm and accent of the foreign language so you can understand what’s being said to you.
On top of all this we’ll show you how to work on your own foreign accent so you can sound like a native speaker and we’ll also teach you some idioms and colloquialisms so you’ll understand how most people really speak.
