What Makes Us Special

Adults can learn a language at a very reasonable pace while enjoying life in Orange County, maintaining a job, and being involved in their family life. Just three major ingredients are needed: 1) an excellent teacher, 2) an excellent text, and 3) a class full of like-minded people. Success in learning a language here at the Orange County Lingual Institute can be achieved by attending an 80-minute class once a week, completing 10-15 minutes of homework each night, and being persistent.

The classes include elements of laughter, fun and camaraderie, making it a weekly event people really look forward to attending. People are taught steadily; as they are inspired and motivated to continue, they keep at it and become more advanced in their skills. As students progress, they continue to attend increasingly advanced classes, where they review, practice, increase their vocabulary and their speed, becoming more fluent. Learning a second language enriches the lives of the speakers and is an amazingly rewarding experience.

The real test is customer satisfaction. Our students return to us term after term because they see progress and their excitement is learning is sustained. They know they are gaining the skills and knowledge to truly communicate in another language rather than simply recite phrases. Our outstanding faculty, intimate classes and university curricula are worth the investment; our students see the value in their time spent and continue term after term. Learning can become a wonderful social habit.
