“Madame McKinney, why can’t my child speak fluent French?
She’s been studying French at this school since she was 5…
she’s now in Grade 4 and can’t speak a word or understand a thing!”
Ever heard this before?

Welcome to AIM The Accelerative Integrated Methodology which is being used in over ten thousand schools around the world and has been referred to as a revolution for second language teaching and learning. The AIM is a unique program because it uses gestures, a specific researched ‘pared down’ language, stories and music to rapidly develop students’ fluency.

AIM turned my teaching practice upside-down and changed the second language learning experience for my students. The program is fun for everyone involved and covers the multiple intelligences, making the language accessible for all types of learners. The results I achieved in such a short space of time were truly compelling and I know it can do the same for you and your students.

Jen McKinney,
Director AIM Language Learning – Australia & New Zealand.
