Philosophy

Learner autonomy underpins the SALC philosophy. We define learner autonomy as a capacity to take charge of onefs own learning. An autonomous learner can make informed choices which requires a level of awareness and control of learning processes which is achieved through reflection. The SALC provides learners with the chance to choose when to study, what to study and how to study, so that learning is tailored to individual needs. We train learners in how to learn, and then support them in the unique opportunity to be able to develop their own personal curriculum. In doing so, we are ensuring that our learners have the life-long learning skills that are necessary for continued language development throughout their university careers and after graduation.
