FAQ

What is the method used?

EL KING Language Institute uses its own patented method to teach languages. The method is based on syntax (word order) instead of grammar, repetition and memorization. With EL KING method students can create their own sentences, instead of being limited to “what the textbook says.” Another peculiar feature of the method is that our instructors (Language Coaches,) coach the students on how to get to SPEAK the language they are learning, something ESL teachers do not know how to do.

What kind of materials do you use?

EL KING uses its own materials. The Learning Aid (ONE-PAGE-BOOK, OPB) is an ingenious tool part of our dual patent. Each OPB is unique; it can be created in any possible language combination and in any direction, v. gr. Tagalog-Russian-Tagalog or Tamil to Navajo. In addition to that, the use of the Learning Aid rapidly increases the student’s vocabulary.

What is the length of the courses?

Based on an initial assessment, one person can be told that in one, two or a week, two or more can be SPEAKING. Some may require a month or two. The current two main programs are structured for a 60 – 120 hours course. For different reasons, such as previous basic knowledge of the target language, in grammar or vocabulary, what some people may just need is four or six hours of instruction, because all they need is to learn how to put sentences together and to have more confidence while speaking. Come and visit us for an initial assessment.

Will everyone get to SPEAK?

Eventually, yes, all depends if the person continues SPEAKING with others and integrates in the culture. Shy people may “know” a lot of grammar, but they will have to overcome those obstacles before being able to SPEAK with confidence.

Class Attendance

Most people fail because they lack the discipline to achieve their goals. Attendance is critical. Poor attendance and participation will give poor results. It is in the classroom where you will be coached on how to get to SPEAK the language you are learning. In our classroom, all students face each other, and they have to come up to the board and speak in front of their peers something that eventually will give them the necessary confidence to SPEAK the language. Remember, practice makes perfect. Any new knowledge works best when you apply and use what you learn every day.

How proficient will I become SPEAKING the language?

Results may vary. Keep in mind that learning a language is a lifetime experience. The interest shown by the student to use and practice what he/she has learned depends basically on them. We provide the tools and necessary knowledge to have them communicating SPEAKING and being able to express their wants and needs, their thoughts and desires.
