Why not provide fluency for your students?
Common English courses apply concepts which were created back in the 1960s that hinder fluency in the studied language. You will come to understand why Obvia will creates real value and change the way your students perceive your courses.
WE HAVE CONSIDERED OBVIOUS QUESTIONS ONE SHOULD ASK ABOUT LANGUAGE ACQUISITION WHEN DEVELOPING THE OBVIA METHOD.
Natural and intuitive
The OBVIA learning process is more natural and intuitive. As a result, students experience a five-fold increase in vocabulary and language structures in comparison to traditional methods.
JUST LIKE NATIVE LANGUAGE LEARNING
Just like in native language learning, through the Obvia Method, students learn how to speak before they learn how to read, write or have contact with grammar rules.
100% oral communication
The moment a student spends with his teacher is possibly the only moment he can speak the studied language. Dedicating this precious time to learning abilities that can be practiced outside class can be considered a waste of resources (time, money, etc.) Through Obvia, 100% of the class time is dedicated to conversation.
Promotes confidence and fluency
We all learn how to speak our native language naturally well before we get to know (become aware of)grammar rules. The Obvia Method enables / promotes the natural learning, and grammar studies can be postponed / delayed / out off to the moment when the student is already able to speak. It sounds obvious, but it is a great difference from all the other methods, since self confidence to speak the new language is enhanced enormously.
psychological mechanisms activate the sensation of pleasure in the student. Her Psychological are always satisfied.
The student is always active inside classroom as he is always in contact with intellectual and emotional stimulation.
Natural learning permits countless situations to recognize the evolution of the student because of two main aspects:
The student practices the new vocabulary and structure through conversations about his own life. Thus, a lot of recognition opportunities come up and the relationship student/teacher becomes much friendlier as well as the relationship with other classmates;
When we learn a language naturally, we learn what is right through examples. So, there is no need to point out mistakes. This creates a feeling of comfort and confidence. This is what our parents do, and is the exact reason why we are not afraid of exposing ourselves to our parents when we are learning how to speak our native language.
In reality, the Obvia Method focuses on practical and enjoyable learning, and this makes all the difference in the speed our students learn a new language. By prioritizing speaking ability inside the classroom, our students acquire new language proficiency much faster than they would in conventional courses.
OBVIA PUBLISHERS LTDA. BELONGS TO THE PARK GROUP, WHICH ALSO CONTROLS THE PARK IDIOMAS FRANCHISING NETWORK.
It all started in 1996...
Park Idiomas was founded in 1996, and between 1996 and 2000, the so-called Park Method was created and exhaustively tested. In October 2000, because of the discovery of the method’s effectiveness, Park Idiomas gave rise to its franchise network, which has been using Park Method ever since.
Park Idiomas has spread throughout Brazil. Park Idiomas network has more than 80 schools and has already made tens of thousands of adults and teenagers fluent in English and Spanish.
Work with a strong conceptual basis was triggered in order to create a name that could represent, in essence, what the method means. The name OBVIA was unveiled. It refers to the conceptual truism that underpins the method, : “It is obvious that the simplest way to learn any language is the way we learn how to speak our own native language.”
Also in 2018, in pursuit of the company’s vision, Park Idiomas shareholders founded Obvia Publisher Ltda., which assumed the responsibility to continue the development of the method and distribute the Obvious Method around the world. Thus, in 2019, the effective Obvia Method also became available to language schools and organizations that operate in markets where Park Idiomas does not operate, including elementary and high schools that have an English program of their own.
