Foreign Language Training Classes
South-North Language Arts runs a small group of "1-on-1 Language Training classes" at our classrooms in Springfield, Northern Virginia. These classes are taught in a relaxed study atmosphere by a team of very helpful, friendly and experienced native-language instructors who also have many years of experience as writers and translators in their languages of expertise.
Our 1-on-1 Language Training classes are all about the art of learning. An Introductory Session to your target language will help you, the learner, and your personal Instructor to plan the course of a focused target-driven journey of learning. Each of the personalized Courses takes into account the learner's current level of knowledge & proficiency and the target level they aim to achieve.
Arabic, Farsi, Urdu & Pashto.
Russia, Ukrainian & Eastern-European Languages.
Spanish, French, Italian & Western-European Languages.
Mandarin, Korean, Japanese & Far East Languages.
"Arabic Levels" is a tailored program of learning skills in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) or in regional variations (such as Egyptian, Levantine or North African Arabic).
"Pashto Levels" offers skills in the Standard Pashto language spoken widely in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
"Urdu Levels" Program focuses on the Standard Urdu language spoken widely in Pakistan and India, and understood in Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
All study courses conform to guidelines of proficiency levels such as the Inter-agency Language Roundtable (ILR), the American Council of Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) and the Educational Testing Service (ETS).
Our instructors use a variety of tested teaching methods, guided by "South-North Language Arts Set of Best Practices,” developed by our Advisory Panel of experts and by instructors' years of teaching experience.
Instructors also use original media materials produced for education, broadcast, radio and the web by our very own video production house.
