Language Programs

Language courses for Independent Learners

The Experience Senegal Program© receives independent learners – students, researchers, development workers, missionaries and the military… – and increases their effectiveness by strengthening their communication skills as well as their cross-cultural sensitivity. Independent students cover the costs of travel, food and lodging as well as tuition. Our unique approach to language training is based on 25 years of experience teaching languages in Senegal. We focus on oral/aural language skills. Our main goal is to strengthen each student’s ability to speak and understand their target language. Reading and writing are included to support the development of speaking and listening skills.
