What is the Accelerative Integrated Methodology?
AIM Language Learning is a language publishing and teacher development organization built around the Accelerative Integrated Methodology (AIM) developed by Wendy Maxwell, Master Teacher and Program Creator.

Workshop Facilitator: Robert Slabodnik
Workshop Facilitator: Magali Forte

AIM blends the best of language-acquisition theory and brain-based research with systematized and engaging classroom practice, creating astounding results. The use of high-frequency vocabulary – introduced with gestures and contextualized in stories, drama, songs and dance – allows students to rapidly achieve levels of oral and written fluency rarely seen with conventional methods. One significant difference is that AIM takes a story-based approach to language learning, rather than a thematic approach. AIM gives students a working fluency in the target language in less than 100 instructional hours using these key techniques:
  • Gestures are used to convey meaning to ensure a target-language only environment! Teachers do the gestures; students do thetalking.
  • Useful, key words are taught first. Don’t wait to teach high-frequency words because they are hard to conjugate!
  • Grammar raps are memorized to learn and use the rules.  Finally grammar is both cool and fun!
  • Songs, dances and plays engage students in an exciting classroom environment!
  • Cooperative activities get students working with each other speaking and writing creatively in the target language.
