THE PHILOLOGICAL METHOD
Achieving fluency fast
Have you ever wondered about those confusing grammatical rules … and received explanations that seemed even more confusing?
In our immersion programs, students receive easy-to-grasp logical explanations to their questions — because learning logically is much better than just memorizing data. In the study of literature, advanced students may receive an intro to philological training. The teacher employs the philological method* (an “old school” approach used in top-tier European language schools). Philological tools are instrumental to reading comprehension for tests like SAT, GRE, and TOEFL. When students understand the deeper meanings, rhetoric and symbols contained in the texts they read, they realize that reading books is not a burden but an extraordinary privilege — and one of life’s enduring pleasures.

Choose Subject-Immersion Training: European and U.S. methods for “short-cuts”-based language learning
Learn like a diplomat !
Subject-immersion strongly stimulates the student’s learning capacity. It differs from traditional training through its degree of intensity: students are expected to study daily and to e-mail questions freely to the teacher during the program.
In diplomatic schools, immersion language programs require 6-8 hours of face-to-face classroom instruction plus out-of-classroom coaching to help a student remain “immersed” and often achieve fluency in a foreign language within 3 months. Our subject-immersion programs are customized to employ the immersion method through a personalized curriculum, usually with 2-4 hours/week and daily self-study (language-immersion) as coached in class.
The teacher’s B.A. is in Philology, a classical subject studied in some European universities.
* The word “philology” comes from Greek — φίλος (phílos) and λόγος (lógos) — and it means “love of words/reason” describing a love of learning, of literature, and of wise reasoning. In Europe, the philological method has represented for centuries the only “proper” way to learn a foreign language. It implies learning languages in a logical way, via etymological references and actual literary sources — as opposed to learning just through repetition, games, or pictures. It is a science that deals with the interrelation between linguistic, cultural, and societal developments in the course of history. This dedication to learning words and comprehending language meanings unites teachers and researchers of modern or classical languages, cultures and literatures, translators, diplomats, journalists, publishers, actors, writers, priests, and poets. Philological instruction is the basis of immersion training, and this educational approach is equally stimulating to children and adults; it expands a student’s insights on multiple plans because it doesn’t merely teach concepts — instead, it connects the dots within the larger perspective. In many European universities, language studies are still called “philology schools” (according to the Renaissance traditions), and the specific methods employed there relate to academia as well as diplomacy and the intelligence fields.
In the U. S. some philological tools are divided among specialized fields: psychology, marketing, intelligence, literary criticism, art, anthropology, and the history of cultures.
