Improve your English: Set language goals!
“If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.” Yogi Berra

We all know that goals are useful for giving our lives direction and purpose, and this is also true for language learning. So it’s important to create useful goals which will support your language development. Here is an example of an unhelpful language goal 😉😀

MIXTREE LANGUAGES - ENGLISH SCHOOL in AMSTERDAM

Why is learning with MixTree Languages effective?

We do things a little differently at MixTree languages. It’s not just our relaxed and friendly learning space, or our cultural events, and not even our tailor-made materials – although these all make a contribution. No, the main difference you will feel at MixTree Languages is our community.

Our teaching is based on the theories of collaborative/social learning. This means that we believe language is learnt not only through ‘input’ but also in the social processes of interaction and ‘meaning making’:

“The relation between thought and word is a living process; thought is born through words.

A word devoid of thought is a dead thing, and a thought unembodied in words remains a shadow.” (Vygotsky, 1934/1962: 153)

This is why it is just as important on our courses that you get to know each other and have opportunities to share your ideas and experiences, as it is to discuss grammar points & new vocabulary. We not only encourage this in class but also outside of class through using WhatsApp groups or attending our cultural events.

Collaboration is also important, as by supporting each other our learners feel able to leave their ‘comfort zone’ and so develop their language further. In language teaching this ‘comfort zone’ is known as ‘the Zone of Proximal Development’ (ZPD):

“…the ZPD is the difference between what a person can achieve when acting alone and what the same person can accomplish when acting with support from someone else...” (Lantolf, 2000: 16-17)

So our collaborative and social environment enables our learners to enter their ZPD more easily and so expand their language more.

At MixTree Languages community is more than a warm, friendly feeling – it is a powerful way to improve your language learning.

We would love you to join our intercultural language learning community, please email, call or message us!
