Why not providing fluency to your students?
Common English courses apply concepts created back in the 1960s that hinder fluency in the studied language. You will understand why Obvia will create real value and change the way your students perceive your school.
We considered obvious questions one should make about language acquisition when developing Obvia Method.
Natural and intuitive
The learning process is more natural and intuitive. As a result, students experience a five-fold increase in vocabulary and language structures in comparison to traditional methods.
Just like the native language acquisition
Just like in the native language acquisition, through the Obvia Method, students learn how to speak before they learn how to read, write and have contact with grammar rules.
100% oral communication
The moment a student spends with his teacher is possibly the only moment he can speak the studied language. Dedicating this precious time to learning abilities that can be practiced outside class can be considered a waste of resources (time, money, etc.) Through Obvia, 100% of the class time is dedicated to conversation.
Promotes confidence and fluency
We all learn how to speak our native language naturally well before we get to know grammar rules. The Obvia Method enables the natural learning, and grammar studies can be postponed to the moment when the student is already able to speak. It sounds obvious, but it is a great difference from all the others, since self confidence to speak the new language is enormously enhanced.
psychological mechanisms activate the sensation of pleasure in the student. His Psychological hungers are always satiated.
The student is always active inside class as he always goes through intellectual and emotional stimulation.
Natural learning permits countless situations to recognize the evolution of the student because of two main aspects:
The student practices the new vocabulary and structure through conversations about his own life. Thus, a lot of recognition opportunities come up and the relationship student/teacher becomes much friendlier as well as the relationship with other classmates;
When we learn a language naturally, we learn what’s right through examples. So, there is no need to point out mistakes. That creates a feeling of comfort and confidence. That is what our parents do, and that is exactly why we are not afraid of exposing ourselves to our parents when we are learning how to speak our native language.
In reality, the Obvia Method focuses on practical and enjoyable learning, and that makes all the difference in the speed our students learn a new language. By prioritizing speaking ability inside the class, our students acquire the new language proficiency much faster than they would in conventional courses.
Obvia Publishers Ltda. belongs to Park Group, which also controls Park Idiomas Franchising network.
It all started in 1996...
Park Idiomas was founded in 1996, and between 1996 and 2000, the so-called Park Method was created and exhaustively tested. In October 2000, because of the discovery of the method’s effectiveness, Park Idiomas gave rise to its franchise network, which has been using Park Method ever since.
Park Idiomas is spread throughout Brazil. Park Idiomas network has more than 60 schools and has already made tens of thousands of adults and teenagers fluent in English and Spanish throughout Brazil.
A work with a strong conceptual basis was triggered in order to create a name that could represent, in essence, what the method means. The name OBVIA was unveiled. It refers to the conceptual truism that underpins the method, : “”It is obvious that the simplest way to learn any language is the way we learn how to speak our own native language.””
Also in 2018, in pursue of the company’s vision, Park Idiomas shareholders founded Obvia Publisher Ltda., which assumed the responsibility to continue the development of the method and distribute the Obvious Method around the world. Thus, in 2019, the effective Obvia Method became also available to language schools and organizations that operate in markets where Park Idiomas does not operate, including elementary and high schools that have an English program of their own.
Technology has exponentialized Obvia Method potential.
