Meaningful communication is the primary focus of instruction. Classes and materials are student centered and communication based. Oral communication for life situations is the foremost goal followed by correct grammar, spelling, and pronunciation. Curriculum is designed to be flexible based on individual needs. Teachers provide opportunities not only to learn from an instructor, but also for students to work together and find strength in each other and their experiences. Students work independently and interactively in pairs and small groups.
