We at Easy Español firmly believe that the ultimate way to fully learn a language -any language- is trough listening. The first step towards language acquisition is to train the learner to be able to discriminate the sounds of a language. Once listening skills are developed, language learners can communicate effectively and with ease in the new language. Easy Español has created and refined our own exclusive method: The Audio-Cognitive method ™. Our approach stands in sharp contrast to most other language-training programs with their overwhelming focus on the written language, a tedious memorization of dull grammar rules, meaningless repetition and vocabulary attainment with an overemphasis on translation. The Audio-Cognitive method helps student gain language fluency trough listening in the shortest time possible.
The challenge when learning Spanish is the speed of the language. Spanish is a fast sound-based language, probably one of the fastest on Earth, therein the strenuous mental –and emotional– effort learners most endure when trying to acquire this language. Grammar rules and bare translation won’t help students achieve language fluency. Our Audio-Cognitive method entails fostering the students’ listening comprehension skills from the start and making the students aware of the direct relationship between the cognitive and emotional processes integral to language performance. The crucial point of our method is first and furthermost to develop the student’s listening comprehension skills through crafted listening activities which ultimately lead to speak the language with confidence.
All in all, the Easy Español’s Audio-Cognitive method is a perfect amalgam of language acquisition theories combined with learning theories. All this is wrapped up with motivational and coaching theories to ensure a natural, rewarding and effective language acquisition experience. At Easy Español students Live the language!
