The Polis Method of Second Language Acquisition
The Polis Institute employs a unique method of language teaching – the Polis Method, which is primarily based on total immersion in the target language, but also adapts other principles such as Dynamic Language Development (DLD). Our method enables students to advance more holistically as compared to a strictly grammatical measure. In the process of learning to speak, students acquire an intuitive understanding of the language. Students also benefit from ongoing research at Polis. Old ideas are constantly challenged, while new ones are illuminated. Our classrooms are living laboratories in which to test the most promising techniques. Currently, our instructors are experimenting with Living Sequential Expression (LSE), a principle that was first conceived and developed at Polis and inspired by the work of François Gouin. The Polis Method is constantly being refined as we incorporate new insights into Second Language Acquisition.
