An individualised educational project
Contrary to popular belief inherited from school years, it is not by mastering grammatical acuity or by a rich vocabulary that one will be best understood in the second language. The pace of speech encourages a paused pronunciation of each syllable, punctuated by a short expressive silence between the parts of a sentence : all are factors of a good speech.
The oratorical exercises that form the cornerstone of OISE pedagogy are invaluable support for the construction of sentences, capacity for forthright repartee in the second language, and the immediate reaction to the intervention of interlocutors.
The enormous advantage of residing for some time, no matter how short, in the country of the target language, is to be able to accustom one's ear to the language as it is pronounced and expressed by the local population; however the ear will be even more attentive when the training covers the different accents, different intonations and the contextual anticipation.
