Welcome to Language Schools in Albania 2018

Language Schools in Albania (LSIA) is the first and by far the largest non profit English language tuition provider in Albania.

University teachers and students gave their great contribution in April 1994 by founding LSIA and turning it into a Language School for Albanian public that have dominated the Albanian education for English teaching for almost 24 years.

We have since 1994 grown rapidly with support from diverse individuals and organizations in the UK, including the UK Supporters of LSIA. 

Over 23, 000 students have visited us so far in schools across Albania, Kosova and Macedonia, and over 5,000 students have received certificates from LSIA and gone on to work or study in Albania and throughout the world.

Our Partners are positioned around the glove, officially representing Universities, Colleges, and Language Schools in the UK, United States, and Canada.

Our Aim and goal is to continue teaching in high standards and meet our students needs, as well as grow bigger and continue being in the marketplace as leaders. Our services consist in teaching in a creative manner English and computer to students, by using the latest practical methods taught from University teachers and teachers with experiences in different group ages.

Language Schools in Albania is working on overcoming four major difficulties that students struggle when learning a new language:

 

 English Speaking Difficulty #1- Listening

Remember that when you’re having a conversation, you’re only talking about 50% the time – the other 50% is spent listening to theother person speak. If you don’t understand what the other person is saying, it’s difficult to reply.

Here are two simple solutions to this problem that LSIA is implementing in the lessons:First, practice some listening “Every Day”. All you need is 10-15 minutes per day to develop your listening skills.

 

 English Speaking Difficulty #2 – Vocabulary

Create conversations and write them down in your vocabulary notebook. This will help you learn useful words that are all related toeach other, so the next time you’re in a situation; you won’t have problems with missing vocabulary.

 

 English Speaking Difficulty #3 – Pronunciation

There are two things that can help you improve your English pronunciation. One way is to take a pronunciation course in our school.Another way to improve your pronunciation is to keep practicing you’re listening. The more you listen to English, the more your pronunciation will naturally get closer and closer to native pronunciation.

A good way to practice is to get an audio sample which our books offer. Listen to one or two sentences then pause the audio and tryto repeat the sentences exactly as the person said them. Practicing pronunciation like this will help you improve very fast; this methodis done at the Primary Level that our school offers.

 

 English Speaking Difficulty #4 – Confidence

First, don’t worry too much about grammar! Just do your best to communicate, and you’ll often be successful even if you do make asmall grammar mistake. Also, remember that the grammar of spoken English is often more “flexible” than the grammar of written English.

Second, keep a positive attitude. Think of yourself as an English speaker (because you are!) and focus on celebrating what you know, not being frustrated about what you don’t know.

Third, practice speaking English as much as possible in low-pressure situations which will make it easier to make any corrections. Here are two examples of low-pressure situations: Talk to your-self! It might feel ridiculous, but it really helps! Talk to your teacherand your friends in your English class. If you make a mistake, they can correct you.

It’s extremely important to practice in low pressure situations as much as possible to build your confidence so that you will be comfortable speaking English with others outsideof the classroom settings.
