Program Description

Mission Leap Learning Systems is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to results-driven language and literacy development. Leap Learning Systemsâ?? programs are proven to accelerate self-confidence and fulfillment in children, parents and educators. Overview Perhaps Leap Learning Systemsâ?? best known program, Language for Scholars (LFS) uses an innovative approach to improve the speaking and writing skills of older students. Leapâ??s staff either delivers LFS directly to students, or trains educators to implement the program in their own classrooms. In this unique program, school age, high school and older students who are preparing for advanced education and entry into the workplace receive individualized coaching that targets some of the more nuanced â?? but very important â?? elements of speaking and writing. Each studentâ??s skills are professionally analyzed, and personal goals are then identified that guide participantsâ?? work over the course of the program. LFS offers an unparalleled opportunity for students to receive professional coaching on verbal presentation, writing style, Academic English, business etiquette and body language â?? skills that, while often taken for granted, are required to gain access to opportunities in the world at large. Why is this kind of coaching important? Leap Learning Systems understands that the ability to use Academic English can broaden social, educational, and economic opportunities by expanding young peopleâ??s verbal effectiveness and confidence beyond their immediate community. Knowing how and when to use Academic English can be the key that unlocks the door to broader educational and financial opportunities. Language for Scholars will: Improve studentsâ?? pronunciation and grammar Encourage polite conversation style and attitude Stress the correct use of nonverbal communication - including eye contact, body posture and mannerisms Promote the use of Academic English in business settings, while respecting all other social dialects Improve studentsâ?? writing skills and style How It Works LFS can be as intense as the recipient wants it to be â?? from a one-day intensive to a series of classes over six weeks. Like all of Leap Learning Systemsâ?? programs, LFS can be tailored to the specific needs of schools, students and teachers.
