  1. The Who, the what, the why, the when, the where – things Inlingua helps students with
  2. Foreign language study: More than just a hobby – opportunities in different sectors and countries

A competitive international market requires quite a lot of talent, diligence and skills. And as it stands, it might also require you to speak more than one language. At Inlingua, this idea is realized with full efficacy to provide well rounded foreign language courses. This article highlights the economic perspective of studying in a foreign country, opportunities associated with it and how Inlingua helps you grab those opportunities.

But before we look into that, let’s have a look into the requisites around learning a new language. Travelling to a country and learn from its native populace would be the quickest way to ace a language. However, that wouldn’t be advisable because of the obvious constraints. So, you get the next best albeit boring thing – practicing, learning the nuances and the grammar and conversing in the language with some experts.

These tenets around learning a language have their own benefits. First, you get to explore opportunities in different countries. Being multi-lingual also lets you capitalize on certain social aspects. From a career based perspective, a foreign language can help you sustain footing in the global economy. Also, it won’t hurt your explorative self – you can utilize your skills to woo a customer, client or the local people.

At Inlingua, all these ideas are brought to fruition through the means of a dedicated faculty and unconventional teaching methods. Most of their material focuses on a holistic learning methodology which highlights the basic constructs of a language. Now that seems to be simple, but really this system lets you grasp a language quicker. This approach makes sense as Inlingua also is a major player in the English coaching market.

Some of their staff was keen enough to delve into the basics of learning a language and shared the same for budding language enthusiasts. Here are a few methods that you can work on:

  • Getting an attainable goal – ‘By fixating on expertise a student often doesn’t even get to an amateur’s level.’ The faculty at the institute curates their student’s goals and creates a strategy to help them achieve those goals.
  • Being consistent – Classes at the institute are mostly organized into certain time frames and weekly sessions to keep a consistent learning pace.
  • Get involved – Inlingua’s faculty involves the most reticent of students to participate in verbal sessions. This helps the students open up and express their thoughts through language.
  • Think of it as a doorway – Think of a language lesson as an opportunity to explore new places and meet new people. This’d act as a motivation for you to keep up with your language practice.

These points are contrary to the methods followed by most other foreign language institutes. Usually language coaching in India follows a hackneyed design which stands irrelevant for a practical use. Institutes follow a rote-learning methodology and formulate ads and marketing gimmicks to attract gullible students – a stereotypical approach.

This stereotype is sure being shattered by the institute and its rather radical teaching methodology. Consequently, this technique will also help Inlingua create its own posse of polyglots and language experts, each of which would be able to employ their skills on a global platform.
