Language Instruction http://ilc-ny.com July 19, 2018 http://backend.userland.com/rss092 en Benefits of Learning a New Language People who are bilingual seem to suffer less mental decline as a result of ageing than those who speak one language, say researchers.

Abilities that depend on keeping one's attention focused on a task decline as people get older. But the study found that those who have been bilingual most of their life were better able to cope, according to the study published in the journal Psychology and Ageing.

Dr Ellen Bialystok, of York University, Toronto, and colleagues compared the performance of 104 monolingual and bilingual middle-aged (30-59 year olds) and 50 older adults (60-88 year olds) on the Simon Task, which measures aspects of cognitive processing that decline with age.

The bilingual group did better, responding more rapidly to conditions that placed greater demands on working memory, and they concluded that "bilingualism helps to offset age-related losses in certain executive processes".

Language Instruction Discover the pleasure of speaking a different language…

We offer language instruction in English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Arabic, Russian and many more.

Our courses are tailored to your needs and learning style and are structured to incorporate conversation (both speaking and listening), reading, writing and enhanced vocabulary. We offer instruction at all levels of proficiency, from beginner to advanced.

Private Instruction
Customized one-on-one instruction maximizes the learning experience and assures rapid progress. Teachers guide students to focus on areas that they need to work on allowing them to acquire a stronger, more expeditious command of the language.

Semi-Private Instruction
Two students are assigned to one teacher. The dynamic between the students, creates an atmosphere for quick absorption of the target language. Semi-private courses makes it easy to have a speaking partner of the same proficiency level.

Group Classes
Small group classes allow teachers to plan and execute activities and exercises that focus on student to student interaction with an emphasis on the immediate use of the language in a setting that is conversational and enjoyable.

Rapid Learning Program
This intensive program is designed for students needing to learn a language as quickly as possible. The Rapid Learning Program is ideal for those who are being sent abroad to work or those whose jobs require a second language (or in some cases, even a third). The duration of the program depends on the proficiency level the student enters with and needs to acquire. These classes are also great for students who will soon be traveling and want a grasp of the language before they leave.
