What sets the Fast Learning School apart from the competition is our focus on RESULTS.
Our aim is to make participants self-efficient in applying tools in accordance with their specific learning needs.
There are 4 stages in the learning process when people develop new skills:
- STAGE 1 – UNCONSCIOUS UNAWARENESS (e.g.: I don’t know thinking skills exist therefore I can’t use them)
- STAGE 2 – CONSCIOUS UNAWARENESS (e.g.: I know thinking skills exist, but still I can’t use them)
- STAGE 3 – CONSCIOUS AWARENESS (e.g.: I know thinking skills exist and I can use them, but still I’m not self-efficient in applying those tools to any kind of information/ materials/ situations. I need the supervision of an expert)
- STAGE 4 – UNCONSCIOUS AWARENESS (e.g.: I know thinking skills exist and I can master them spontaneously and with ease. I’m able to apply those tools to any kind of information/ materials/ situations).
Most of the courses we find on the Market are focused on bringing people to the 3rd stage.
People who want to learn reading or memory techniques, for instance, find courses lasting for 1 or 2 days. After 2 days participants “know” techniques, but they can’t really “master” them. Stage 3 is the most dangerous one as at that level people think they can master a method/ tool when actually they cannot.
Our aim is to bring people to the 4th stage of learning in order to make them self-efficient and to produce a real change in their learning habits.
In order to do that, our training offer has 3 distinguishing features:
- It is 100% customized
- It is focused on results
- It is innovative and playful.
1. 100% customized
Both one-to-one and group classes are focused on participant needs and interests. We adapt our training programs to the kind of materials/ contents/ learning they want to assimilate and become familiar with.
- Students in Law have to read and memorize codes and laws.
- Researchers in History have to read long texts and researches, they have to assimilate names, dates of events, concepts.
- Journalists usually read magazines and newspapers, they need to read quickly and grasp main information.
These are 3 examples of people having different learning needs.
2. Focused on results
We provide participants with both training and coaching to support them once they have learned the basics.
We not only provide participants with tools such as memory/ reading techniques to boost study, we also coach them in applying those tools to specific materials they have to study.
Training programs consist of both training (in order to learn basic tools) and coaching (in order to ensure students become self-sufficient in applying these tools).
3. Innovative and playful
Our didactics is based on the suggestopedic principles: recreational activities, games, drama, art and music are the tools we use to speed up memorisation and to ensure participants feel safe and confident while they are learning something new.
We develop games and playful exercises to help participants in retaining knowledge they need to assimilate (e.g.: foreign words for a student in Languages).
