The 10 inlingua® Method training principles – how we guarantee success



Only the target language is used.


The main training strategy is learning through speaking.


The focus on writing and reading is dependent on the learner’s needs.


Learners speak 80% while the trainer only speaks 20% of the time.


Learners acquire language skills through examples and practice rather than theoretical explanations.


Learners are tested regularly to make sure they understand the material before learning new content.


Trainers tailor lessons to the individual needs of learners.


Trainers correct mistakes immediately so that the students learn to self correct while they speak.


Trainers keep a positive atmosphere through a variety of teaching techniques.


Student books are closed during most of a lesson – this encourages maximum use of the language.
