AMIGOS is not just a language school, our target is to TEACH COMMUNICATION SKILLS in INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENTS. Communication is the main target of any language but, unfortunately, sometimes even if you can read, write, speak or understand a language, the communication is still not good enough. Maybe you are wondering - How can it happen? You will find the answer to this question just thinking about the way you learned your native language. Did you start studying grammar while being a baby? For sure not, we simply experienced the need of transferring some information and we learned to do it just listening and repeating what other people are saying. It means we FIRSTLY learned how to COMMUNICATE and only AFTERWARDS how to read, write or speak according to the GRAMMAR rules, and never in the other way around. This is exactly the main philosophy of AMIGOS, to make our students learning the communication as a native would do it, without splitting the learning process into different parts (reading, writing, listening, etc) but just taking it as a whole. HOW TO GET IT? AMIGOS offers an alternative based on the combination of the most efficient parts of classical methodologies. The result is an innovative way to learn a foreign language, following the requirements of the REAL LIFE but, at the same time, adapted to the INDIVIDUAL REQUIREMENTS of each student.
