The Chattanooga School of Language (CSL), founded in the summer of 2011, offers access to more than 10 different languages. Unlike what you might find in other classroom settings, CSL teachers take a holistic approach to teaching, with interactive methods that focus on language acquisition and cultural understanding.
To truly understand a language, one must too understand the culture from which it comes. So the teachers at CSL provide a broader base for understanding these new languages by delving into cultural aspects, such as customs, food, music and film. This method is not only more engaging than bending over a textbook, but it also helps students really get in touch with a culture outside of their own. By actively growing our knowledge of language, we stand to gain a broader, more culture-rich worldview. So CSL exists to bridge cultural gaps, and it does so—one class at a time.
