Learn About blendTech from BRIC Language Systems

It sounds simple, yet no one else does it. At BRIC, unlike other online language learning programs, we don’t take a “one size fits all approach” to learning a language. We don’t use one method and apply it to all languages. We recognize that the best system for learning Spanish will not work for Mandarin Chinese, and that what works for learning Russian will not work if you want to learn Brazilian Portuguese. The languages are simply too different, each with its own unique features that need to be accounted for. Our online language courses, with teachers who are based in China, Brazil, and Mexico is your sure-fire way to learn a new language.

 

We teach languages as they are spoken today.

Other programs employ language teachers who live in the US, far removed from the country whose language they teach. If you want to learn Mandarin Chinese, for example, you don’t want to learn from someone who was born in Cleveland. They will likely teach you outdated words and phrases. BRIC takes the opposite approach, connecting you with the best Chinese teachers in China. We guarantee that our students will learn the most modern and useful content available, because our language guides teach from some of the world’s most vibrant business centers.

Cultural Competency

We have a responsibility to ensure that our students are never culturally out-of-step. Our language guides share with students, local perspectives, including helpful hints like these:

  • Never give a clock as a gift to your Chinese counterpart. Clocks are associated with death.
  • Invited to a colleague’s home in Mexico? Show up a few minutes late … arriving on time is considered inappropriate.
  • Avoid using the “OK” sign in Brazil … it’s a rude gesture here! “Thumbs up” is acceptable and means “good” or “positive”.

Because our language teachers are local, they not only know the language well but also the customs and etiquette of the local people.
