Each student approaches foreign language education with their own jumble of motivations, skills, interests and personal experiences. Some will have a natural ear for language while others will struggle.

I believe that every person can learn with targeted instruction. I believe in the practical use of the language—using the language to discuss various subjects and topics. Students must have ample opportunities to practice the language. I believe in activating a student's knowledge at the beginning of every lesson and thus, building their confidence for the remainder of the lesson.
