At Lexica we are fascinated with the science behind learning languages. How does your brain want to learn? Which methods and technology are truly brain compatible? For over 20 years we have been driven to find the best ways to teach a language. Our program is the thrilling result of this journey.
How do you benefit?
The emphasis we put on the science of language acquisition and the immediate, practical application in the classroom of everything we teach produces the type of dynamic, effective teachers who are in high demand anywhere in the world. Our program will empower you to teach English (or any other language you know) with success!
What sets Lexica apart?
Over the last 22 years, in addition to teaching English and Spanish, our principal instructors, Jordan and Ruth Stackhouse, have conducted teacher training seminars with over 1000 students in 17 countries on five continents. Most of these trainees had learned English and other languages in an institution such as university or college with an average course duration of one year. They were all asked this question: “How many distinct methods did your teacher use to get you to speak the target language. Without fail, 99% replied: “two or three methods.” The vast majority expressed great dissatisfaction with their language learning experience. At Lexica Training Institute we teach our trainees at least thirty distinct methods that when consistently applied can elicit 1000 responses from their language students per hour. The top priority for language students is to speak and understand the language they are learning. Without neglecting reading and writing skills we focus our teacher training on the critical speaking and listening skills.
Whether you are just starting out or already have experience this program will renew, revitalize, indeed revolutionize your teaching and make you a most dynamic, productive teacher. We wholeheartedly invite you to join us on this exciting journey.
"What an amazing class to be a part of! It truly could have saved me from a lot of stress the last two years of teaching (trial and error) without having done this course. I definitely did things backwards. Take this class first is what I highly recommend!"
“The lectures were informative, demonstrations were effective, and even the jokes and personal experiences were a good break from an otherwise dry subject. The scientific material about neuroscience was also very helpful. Jordan is an excellent instructor with a relaxed manner of teaching.”
"I have had post secondary education relevant to this field of practice and have gone through various workshops, seminars, and programs and I have to say that this course was by far the best. The variety of methods, the hands on experience as both teachers and learners with all of the methods, and the knowledge of the teacher blew me away. I am telling all of my friends and colleagues about this program. I left this program excited to teach and confident in my abilities to do so. I cannot thank you enough for what you have given me and I hope I can give back as best I can."
“The dynamic way that the training was delivered and the wide range of techniques were demonstrated. Also the way the teaching practice sessions were set up with a view to mutual appraisal and encouragement from fellow students. So as a result I did not feel scrutinized or under pressure. Just loved the 360 degree experience! The training and support that I experienced from both Trainers and fellow students was invaluable and gave me the confidence that I need to start teaching. English! Thank you so much.
“The instructors were able to teach complex material in a way in which it was easy to digest and this meant I was able to learn while not being overwhelmed with information. The class was also extremely interactive and fun and the teaching practices also helped me be able to gain confidence in teaching.
"Amazing atmosphere, relaxed and positive approach to teaching. It was the very best training I’ve ever attended. I had no idea that teaching a language can be so rewarding. Thank you very much!"
