Learn a language the right way.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
London, May 2012 – The UK language school UIC Languages is working to dispel some of the myths surrounding language learning. Some people mistakenly assume that exposure to a language is enough to learn it, said a spokesperson. While this may be true for infants, it takes focused study for older children and adults to learn.
‘If you come to study at UIC you are an adult, you are motivated, you are in a small class with other motivated adults, you have an enthusiastic native speaker teaching you and you have a syllabus which is communicative.’
Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania agree that learners must receive ‘comprehensible input’ in order to progress – this requires language input to be modified in order for students to understand it.
Teaching must also be carried out by those who are fluent in the language. The same researchers found that parents who forced themselves to speak a language they weren’t proficient in so that their children would be exposed to it actually delayed the child’s language development.

For students hoping to learn French Leeds and other UK cities may be more convenient than courses run in London.
