Modern Spanish programs in Merida
Our Language Learning Philosophy
...a new concept of learning...
The Institute of Modern Spanish is based on a new concept of learning
called Integrated Language Learning. Our programs integrate Spanish language
education with a unique cultural experience with family homestay. By replacing
memorization of grammar rules with a total cultural experience, we enable
our students to leave our programs with a knowledge of Spanish that is
practical, culturally applicable, and long-lasting. Our programs explore
the language as it is used in today's Spanish speaking communities.
...the best method
of teaching the Spanish...
Our faculty are experienced in teaching all levels of students--from beginners
to the most advanced. Our courses integrate all aspects of language learning--speaking,
listening, reading, and writing. We feel that this is the best method
of teaching the Spanish language as it is used in today's world. Furthermore,
we use a variety of language teaching methods to ensure that all learning
styles are met.
...we are devoted to
Mexican culture and history...
At our institute students will learn the Spanish language by communicating
with native speakers because we want to give our students a deeper understanding
of the Spanish-speaking civilizations. While native culture is emphasized
at the elementary and intermediate levels, at the upper-intermediate and
advanced levels we offer such courses as Spanish - American Literature
and Spanish for Business which incorporate aspects of the entire Latin
American world. Also, we are devoted to teaching the history and culture
...small group learning with real communication...
For Spanish language instruction, we place students of similar language
ability levels in groups of no more than five. Often times there are as
few as one or two students to a teacher. Our goal is to give you tools
with which you will be able to communicate in Spanish, not just answer
grammar questions about the language. Therefore, small group learning
in which real communication takes place is essential. Individual placement
tests are given the first day of classes to ensure all students are placed
an appropriate level. Furthermore, you are not obligated to stay at the
same level for the entirety of your program.
...language and culture
We believe language and culture are inseparable. While cultural classes
are designed for intermediate and advanced students and, therefore, are
presented in Spanish, some cultural classes may be presented in English
when demand exists. This ensures all students have the opportunity to
learn more about the local and national culture. As these classes are
opened to all interested students, they may have more than five students
per class. Availability of cultural classes is dependent on enrollment.
Normally, two different cultural classes will be available to choose from.
...Spanish is the method
for all communication...
We discourage use of students' native languages. Spanish is the method
for all communication. Although our faculty and staff are bilingual, unless
there is an emergency, they will speak Spanish with you and you will do
the same with them.
