We understand that language is inherently interactive. So we’ve created industry-specific online communities just for that purpose.
The student workbook is packed full of interactive activities for the real world as well as the virtual world.
WLS has married the critical element of human interaction with today’s technology and convenience in our WLS Online Communities. Our communities are comprised of members of your industry who are also learning language for professional purposes. You will find that you have a lot in common with the other community members. You will make friends and learn to discuss topics in your industry in your target language.
Members also have e-mail, phone, and “Live Chat” access to a bilingual WLS Language Instructor, but many find that most of their questions can be answered by other WLS Online Community members. By blending our English students with our Spanish students, WLS has created a spirit of cooperative learning, encouragement, and empathy among its members. The WLS Online Community experience also serves as a “safe” practice opportunity for you to cross the language and culture barriers which sometimes intimidate us in face-to-face interactions.
However, because our primary goal at WLS is to get you functional at work in your target language, you will be given weekly WLS At-Work Challenges to complete as part of your WLS Self-Study Course. Your fellow community members are there to give you advice and encouragement, and your WLS Buddy will be there to help you and hold you accountable.
