(Introduce the different bespoke that will both enhance the sabbatical experience and speed up the language learning process. How and where to arrange for bespoke activities?)
Learning a new language can be tedious to begin with specially for students who don’t have a prior knowledge or skill related to the language in question. A language is a dynamic representation of a specific culture, and as such, it can be most effectively taught in a dynamic way that includes not only classroom lectures but also a host of activities that present an immediate opportunity to practice using it in real life. A method that effectively fits the requirements of language learners whose aim is immediate fluency in as short time as possible are programs that include bespoke activities. As a customized program, any particular set of bespoke activities can serve as a laboratory component of language learning. As such, it can serve not only to enhance the dynamic process of studying any particular language, but also actually is helpful in accelerating a student’s learning speed.
Bespoke activities are so designed to support language learning outside of the traditional classroom. For learners of Spanish language in particular, bespoke programs may include activities such as Flamenco and salsa classes which are intended to familiarize students with the rich cultural heritage associated with the language. Because such activities creates for the student an opportunity to interact with native speakers, the student gets the kind of real life exposure that helps in developing native language skills. Done with the help of a dedicated team that includes specialized coaches and a speech therapist, bespoke programs create an indelible imprint on the student regarding the various contexts under which a language’s diction can be used to express a particular idea or set of ideas, apart from learning proper intonation and accent. Grammar points as taught in the classroom are also immediately internalized through these activities.
From the discussions above, it can be clearly seen that learning a language through a program that supports the integration of bespoke activities offers the following set of unique advantages, to wit:
- It helps in enriching vocabulary and developing proper pronunciation because of active interactions with native speakers.
- Real life contexts under which a languages’ vocabulary can be used to express ideas are immediately learned.
- Confidence in using the language is quickly developed even as the student gain a high level of real life exposure in a community where the language and its attendant culture thrives.
From its inception, MLB’s aim is to offer effective bespoke programs under the guidance of qualified coaches and a speech therapists. In particular, MLB’s bespoke activities serves to lessen the time required for a learner to become a native speaker of Spanish, and since the activities included in the program are social in nature, it also makes the learning process as fun as it can be.
