Our pronunciation learning method was developed in Los Angeles, California and designed especially for Japanese speakers by a bilingual team. It focuses on the mechanics of sound creation by defining the 8 mouth shapes and 8 tongue positions which are used to mimic and master natural English pronunciation. This also leads to improved listening skills which helps facilitate smoother communication with native speakers.
Students can record their pronunciation regularly to check where it is good or what needs to be corrected. We also offer Hummingbird CD and DVD materials for self-study at home. With continuous learning and practice, students can feel their progress and speak more and more confidently in English.
Through Link & Motivation’s core technology of Motivation Engineering, our student counselling team of Career Navigators work to understand each student’s goals as well as any frustrations affecting their motivation. They develop learning plans and habits with each student and, together with our teaching team, support them in truly making progress towards their goals for a more meaningful language learning experience.
Our team of bilingual instructors come from different backgrounds and we work together to deliver a great classroom experience to our students every day. Get to know some of our Hummingbird Facilitators below.
I was able to use my Japanese skills and got into a unique aspect of English teaching through Hummingbird. The “customer second” policy has enabled us employees to follow our dreams, and more often than not they can be fulfilled right here in this booming business. Ultimately, if you are there for RSLC, RSLC is there for you.
