Curriculum: the VivaLing study programme

The VivaLing approach at the heart of the language teaching programme

VivaLing has designed its own curriculum, based on two fundamental principles: positive pedagogy and neuroscience. Our educational programme enables learners to make consistent long-term progress.

The VivaLing approach revolves around three pillars

Our understanding of the learning process led to the creation of this new model. These three pillars make the learning journey unique and effective!

The VL learning journey is highly personalised and progress depends on many factors, such as frequency of classes, amount of homework completed and the learner’s ability.  Our coaches will adapt the structure of the course when they feel learners should be going faster or more slowly.  These numbers are indicative and based on an average of our current learners and the VL assessment system.
