The Foreign Service Institute method used for teaching a foreign language, which is included in all the courses at Loquella are popularly known as the ‘guided imitation’. In today’s world people often want to learn a foreign language which can be easily used for their everyday requirements or to successfully adapt themselves to a new situation or country. The FSI or the Foreign Service Institute introduced such methods help you to have expertise on the foreign language in almost all most situations.
Pronunciation is one of the most important parts that the method lays emphasis on. Learning the proper pronunciation makes the learner understand the language better. So it is very important to learn the pronunciation while learning the new language extensively. Thus Loquella has developed different options of learning a language. And all these options have the facility of listening to the audio files along with reading the text.

Loquella has also developed programs where the learner can download the complete lesson in the mp3 format and then play it to listen and understand the language as well as get the best of the pronunciation.
The Foreign Service Institute method has also introduced the basic dialogues in every course which serves as the foundation for every lesson it teaches. These dialogues are based on the day to day situation that the learner is likely to encounter. These basic dialogues include new vocabulary and grammar points, which are a must know for any language.
Different types of language drills are used in each lesson which provides a variation in the basic dialogues. These language drills and patterns help the learner to practice the sentences and phrases that he has already learnt. While practicing these drills the learners are given one sentence or dialogue and then he/she can practice the exercises which consist of various substitutions, vocabulary and grammars.
The Foreign Service Institute method focuses on standard methods of learning a language which involve the repetition and continuous practice of the language in order to have a good command over the language. This innovative method also enables the learner to memorize words and sentences easily and quickly.
With continuous listening and rigorous practice of the various drills in all the lessons, the learner can adequately equip themselves. In the audio files various dialogues and drills are pronounced to make the learner learn the pronunciations properly. It is very important to listen to the audio when the learner is taking lessons on the French language as it is a completely non phonetic language. Spanish is a phonetic language but there are several Spanish speaking countries in the world where dialects and pronunciation differs significantly. Thus the has developed the Spanish course on the basis of a mythical country called Surlandia which typically follows the Latin American accent and dialect.
The Foreign Service Institute has developed modern methods for learning a language. It has made learning of a new language enjoyable as well as simple for millions of those interested in the same.
