OUR PHILOSOPHY

It took me almost 30 years of teaching foreign languages to close the circle and combine experience with shortcuts learned in the classroom. The result is this method: An attempt to give our teaching spaces the authenticity they deserve and to provide our students with meaningful opportunities to acquire a second language in a dynamic and natural way.

TIM on the mat™ is based on the following principles:

  • Acquiring a language is a natural process

  • The brain seeks meaning

  • Emotions are critical to learning

  • Movement reduces stress and enhances learning

  • Learning another language promotes cultural awareness
