New Era Learning

Welcome To New Era Languages! We have been actively involved in the distribution and selling of the New Era Language courses for many years, and provided many Language courses to various people, who have succeeded in learning a language of their choice or need. We have a choice of 9 International and 5 Local African Language Courses, which provide language learning solutions to individual learners, Educational institutions, Governmental and Corporate markets.

Over many years Linguists have devised a Language Learning System, which was based on experience gained from the language by association methodology. A complex subject was simplified by adopting a natural approach, which we have all experienced in our earliest childhood. We have all learned to speak through a multi-sensory approach A.A.C. (Audio Active Comparative – seeing, hearing and repeating). Through this natural and highly effective method, we have all acquired the ability to speak our mother tongue. We acquired the ability to communicate effectively and with ease.

Because of the structure of the courses it is not necessary for a student to have any particular linguistic talent. They are suitable for children from about the age of 3 years (with parental guidance until they are able to do it on their own) and for students of average intelligence. The courses cover a large variety of topics, which range in content between one and three levels. (Advanced Levels to follow, for some Languages).

 

Methodology

There are only two ways to learn a new language:

  • Translation Method
  • Mother Tongue Method

The Translation Method teaches us to think in our mother tongue or home language and then translate into the new language. This I am sure you experienced in school. People take extremely long to learn to speak a language in a school environment. Some people never learn to speak at all with this method due to two factors, namely:

  • You do not learn to have self confidence in the Language
  • You do not learn to think in the Language you are learning

The Mother Tongue Method is the more natural way to learn. You will acquire a new language exactly as you did as a child. This will be achieved by use of the same multi-sensory approach (A.A.C.) Audio Active Comparative or Seeing, hearing and repeating, which you experienced as a child. It is a natural, simple, effective and proven method of acquiring a language.

With this method you automatically learn to think in the language and build self confidence due to the fact that you are purely immersed in the language of your choice. This is the methodology that New Era Languages uses.
