    I find this to be a great method because we play games with other students, that’s really good and helps us progress quickly. I can’t wait to do it again, I really liked it.

Course Reviews

Still no reviews

Learning a new language can be a source of anxiety. The fear of expressing oneself in public or difficulties with understanding often result in a block that can begin at school and can be difficult to overcome. Elfe offers an innovative method with a "quantum leap" system.

 

In physics, a quantum leap is an abrupt change in the state of a system, in a virtually instantaneous way:  moving from one energy state to another energy state. Applied to language learning, it's about moving from a state in which we have often been for a long time with doubts about the possibility of progressing to a state where we can use the language in question in a fluent way and understand various spoken communication situations. It is also a leap that all students undergoing intensive learning can make in spoken communication and understanding from the end of A2 level (advanced beginner level).
