FLSAS’ Focused Foreign Language Learning programs are for those:
who need to learn a specific vocabulary and how to use it;
who want to communicate with specific groups of people (socially, professionally)
who need to improve present foreign language skills;
who are just beginning their foreign language learning experience;
who want foreign language and cultural preparedness training before doing business in a country;
As executives and professionals have limited time to learn a foreign language, they need to focus on the essentials. FLSAS has developed FOCUSED Foreign Language Learning, the practical approach.
When you learned your own language, as a child, you started with a few of the most important words; you increased your vocabulary as your world expanded. You used words to communicate your needs and wants.
When, as an executive or professional, you need to communicate with others in your field, the logical progression would be to concentrate on the vocabulary words, technical terms and “lingo” that are most important to you. At the beginning, it is not necessary to speak in perfect sentences. With vocabulary and body language, you will be able to communicate. As you use your vocabulary, and listen carefully to the conversations around you, the grammar will come. Yes, you should study grammar, but that should not be your primary focus.
Concentrate on what you need to know, on the “world around the professional you,” what vocabulary and special situations apply specifically to your profession or circumstances. Work on applying that to everyday conversation in a total language immersion environment.
