Sandra Pais - Language Philosophy

Language Philosophy

Quite understandably the learning of any foreign language is a long journey if one has to develop the ability to emphasize the very best aspects of the language. Yet after contributing to a student’s eye opening experience, as I stand back and survey students as people being empowered by their ability to think, and thereafter communicate effectively, brings its own rewards which are substantially rich and especially gratifying when some revert to resume higher levels of learning the same language, or another foreign language.

Sandra Pais - Teaching Techniques

Teaching Techniques

Cater to students, professionals, businessmen needing flexitime and personalized attention. In the interest of more effective learning the maximum number of students taught together in not more than four, that too given homogeneity.

Mastery of a foreign language is not an easy challenge. To uphold academic standards, as a good teacher I take up this challenging task, which pre-supposes mastery over two languages, the language of origin & the foreign language taught. I strive to help students learn the language through Direct and Indirect Methods, Written and Oral Practice/ Assignments. Yet I expect hard work from the students as It requires significant effort on their part to master a mix of six skills, reading, listening, understanding, memorizing, speaking, and writing.
