Innovating online language learning

During the last 5 years, Be Bilingual Inc. has been providing  online lessons to meet to meet client needs when traveling or vacationing. Therefore, our teachers have years of experience guiding students  in the classroom and online. In fact, Be Bilingual has used online teaching before it became popular.

FOREIGN LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION: Be Bilingual prepares students through one-on-one instruction customized to the students’ specific business or personal needs and schedule. While Be Bilingual has a niche in helping to prepare business professionals to communicate with their corporate partners and employees, we also provide individual, private instruction for ages 8 and up.

INSTRUCTORS: All Be Bilingual instructors are native speakers who pass a rigorous grammar exam before qualifying to be trained in Be Bilingual’s exclusive method.

IMMERSION: Be Bilingual designed the Immersion program for students wishing to increase their level of proficiency in English or Spanish. Our Immersion program is a week of intensive language classes. Students can opt for either a full day schedule, 6 hours per day/30 hours per week, or a half day schedule, 4 hours per day/20 hours per week. Students explore the depth of conversational skills through an intense schedule allowing them to establish fluency, and preparing them to communicate more effectively in business, travel or when relocating to a new country. Be Bilingual requires Immersion students to be at an advanced-beginner (or higher) level of fluency to be considered for the Immersion program. Be Bilingual customizes our immersion program to the student’s personal needs and at their learning pace, so every experience is unique. Our immersion training engages the spoken word at least 50% of the time, increases a student’s cultural knowledge and awareness, and can include an optional lunch with the instructor.

WRITTEN TRANSLATION: Be Bilingual offers Written Translation services in both English and Spanish.
