“Lorraine Way of the Language Way designs tailor-made language training programs that get the trainee speaking the new language immediately. Training focuses on the vocabulary, sentence structure and tenses needed by the trainee in their day to day work setting. Lorraine spends considerable time researching your sector and interviewing you ahead of time to understand the exact settings in which you need to speak and communicate in the foreign language. She continually adjusts, adds to and finds new materials to enrich the learning experience.
"I am a medical educator with responsibilities for medical students as well as post graduate trainees and practicing physicians. I am acutely aware of how adult education must be tailored to the needs and time constraints of each student. Serious, challenging content must be conveyed in a manner that both entertains and inspires. Lorraine is expert in both. She knows how to reinforce the student’s initiative and yet remain directive. She has a way of correcting my mistakes with humor and encouragement that keeps me eager to learn. We are a team and team work is a core concept of adult learning. When I express an interest in a particular topic she provides written or web-based materials to spur my curiosity. She constantly seeks new ways to engage my interest and challenge my intellect. Every avenue to speak, read or listen to Spanish beyond the confines of the classroom is explored. Given the competing demands on my time, her creativity is critical to my motivation. Before I met Lorraine I knew learning Spanish was important for my professional growth. But I had no idea how much fun it would be. I’m proud to say that “The Language Way” is my way." August 2010
