Students of our language learning program will speak with more confidence, fluidity and accuracy than students of any other language program.
We assist foreign language students in learning to speak their target language at high levels of excellence. We do this by developing and providing the absolute best tools available for learning to converse in foreign languages.
Scott Brians [master of science in engineering] has used different approaches to learning foreign languages: classroom, computer programs, workbooks, recorded lectures, trips to the countries, translation-based, etc. After those experiences, he believes the Foreign Service Institute's guided imitation method has proven itself to be the most effective tool in teaching how to converse. Scott is responsible for drill design, grammar notes, audio engineering, marketing and distribution channels.
Annette Brians [PhD in psychology], a native German, was sent to England and France by her parents at a young age to learn the respective languages.

Later on, Dr. Brians received the highest language learning certificates available for those languages from the University of Passau, Germany. Dr. Brians is responsible for editing and is the voice for the German and French audio courses.
