BACKGROUND

The idea originated from a major national and international experience of its founder and director Lic. Karina Barbalace, who has academic credentials and teaching experience in the USA and in the market of teaching English as a second language in Argentina for more than 10 years. She offers training courses, translation interpretation and consulting services in English and in Spanish.

My goal is for students to be motivated in the process of learning English or Spanish and thus manage to develop their linguistic and communicative competence, so that they can communicate fluently, with self-confidence, and professionalism; in the globalized English world and in different areas along with the new demands and the advance of technology, through the influence and use of media. The student's progress and the achievement of his/her linguistic and career goals is of high importance.

The latest teaching methodologies are used, such as: the Communicative Approach (CLT) and task based approach (TBLT). The Flow theory developed by the American psychologist Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, of optimal learning is also considered.

"The Most enjoyable activities are not natural; they demand an effort that initially one is reluctant to make. But once the interaction starts to provide feedback to the skills of a person, it usually begins to be intrinsically rewarding." ― Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience
