Combining several of the strongest Language Acquisition Theories, such as Learning by Doing, from John Dewey, Constructivism by Lev Vygotsky, and Structured Input/output by Lee Van Patten, we have created a set of techniques and tactics that will address each student´s learning style and will help you overcome the different challenges you might face through your learning process. We understand that every learner is different, due to their life background; therefore, we take into consideration the findings by Stephen Krashen, which address intellectual and emotional drawbacks experienced by learners throughout their language acquisition process. A team of language professionals will assess your current level of skill, ability and style of learning and will help you reach your communication goals in a short time, giving you a great sense of achievement.

Cultural conditions and social rules (rules of politeness, the way of addressing others which differs according to generations, sex, classes and social groups), sociolinguistic rules affect communication in all languages between representatives of different cultures even if the learners are not necessarily aware of it.
Other cultural knowledge concerning to day-to-day living (organization of the day, mealtimes, means of transport, communication and information), is essential for the management of language skills in a foreign language.
As well as knowledge of the shared values and beliefs held by social groups in other countries and regions, such as religious beliefs, taboos, assumed common history are essential to intercultural communication. These multiple areas of knowledge vary from individual to individual. They may be culture-specific, but nevertheless are interwoven into all our courses here at L&C Spanish School. Learn from our teachers and tutors both the language as such and the cultural traits needed to successfully navigate the Spanish-speaking world.
