If you are studying live in-person in Jakarta, your tutorial sessions will be 90 minutes
and every 13th session of your Language Program will serve as an Assessment Checkpoint.

During these sessions, your Instructor will have you complete a number of specific tasks designed to establish your language proficiency. 

PRE-PROGRAM ASSESSMENT  (FOR NON-BEGINNERS)

This will enable us to make some advance determinations regarding your language competency

and not waste time covering material you have already mastered.

Once your Program has commenced, your progress will be assessed regularly

and your Program will be customised to meet your individual needs.

LSI'S COMMUNICATIVE APPROACH

washed out grey.png

Language is a resource for communication; it's NOT just a system of rules (as most of our secondary schools seemed to think). There is virtually no connection between knowing the rules of a language and being able to USE that language effectively and appropriately in daily communication.

With LSI's proven method,

there is no place for the outmoded  and ineffective "drilling methods" of the past.

How long you spend in a given Topic will depend entirely on your progress.

Modern educational research has shown us that you can only learn to communicate in a language by communicating in that language. With this in mind, LSI's Private Tutorial Sessions are designed with one singular goal:  to provide you an ongoing opportunity to develop true communication skills through genuine one-on-one interaction with your Instructor on a series of real-life Topics

 

For learners having no previous experience with Bahasa Indonesia, Topics may be as simple as "greeting strangers in a social or business situation" or "giving and receiving directions to a location." For learners with some experience, Topics such as "ecology," "security," "medicine" and "cultural norms" are available to be explored.

LSI's Private Tutorials are particularly beneficial for rapid language acquisition, as they allow a private Instructor who understands your individual needs to customise the training methods and materials to meet those specific needs, and to select Topics for your Tutorial Sessions which address your areas of immediate difficulty.

Whilst language learning can be a slow and arduous process in a general classroom setting, fluency can be attained relatively quickly with the undivided attention of a private Instructor who teaches to your needs alone.

The Topics explored during your Tutorial Sessions are neither

"Beginner," "Intermediate" or "Advanced."  They are simply "Topics."

And your Instructor will freely select Topics for your Tutorial Sessions 

based on your very specific needs.

Once you have demonstrated an ability to communicate effectively within the context of a particular Topic,

your Instructor will be ready to move on to another more-complex Topic.
