Course Description

Set in a series of stories, the lessons place you in everyday situations and daily activities of a family. Every story consists of ten lessons, each expanding on the previous all while having a tutor clarify grammar and idioms as needed. The whole learning process focuses on the family members’ casual conversations in their daily lives which progressively become more and more complex. This learning experience flows very naturally and it is meant to make you feel like you are a part of the story actively participating with the family, rather than simply studying words and phrases.

The BASIC program (Lessons A-J) covers the essential material needed when traveling. Level 1 (Lessons 1-100) is where complex stories involving the entire family takes place.

Instructor Biography

Story Time Language Learning, Paving the Path to Fluency

Story Time Language Learning came into existence due to the shortcomings in every language program that is currently in the market. These programs start you off at the very bottom but unfortunately leave you there since you do not develop ability to hold casual conversations.

As expected, the best way to master a language is by living abroad where you immerse yourself in the country’s native language through daily interactions with the locals. This gives you the ability to listen to, recognize, and speak an enormous amount of words and phrases. It is this experience that we strive to replicate.

We are NOT introducing another language program for beginners.

Story Time Language Learning is specifically designed for high school students or older who have already been exposed to the foreign language in school, college, or through another language program.

Our vision is to help pave the path to fluency for anyone struggling to learn a second language.
