Introduction to Hills Learning

Classroom Environment “Students Come First” (Principle #1):

Our classrooms are not like this:

Our group class sizes are limited, maximum 8 for beginner levels and 6 for upper levels (pre-intermediate and above). We keep the class sizes low to maximize speaking and listening time, and to encourage classes to be interactive. Our SWIRL® methodology focuses on the speaking and listening components of the language.

Our minimum number of students is 3 per group class. Yes, it’s that easy to start and continue a class at Hills Learning!

Quality Teachers “A Good Teacher is our Best Asset” (Principle #2)

All our teachers are:

– Native speakers of the language they teach

– Have at least three years teaching experience

– Developed and nurtured through our ongoing training, observation, and review programs

– Mature professionals, eager to share their language and cultures

– Employees (not Independent Contractors), meaning we invest time, energy and resources into our teaching staff
