Hey, if you want to bring your lunch, we have a full lounge and break room upstairs with a vending machine, microwave, tables, couches and a couple of tvs.
Rigor and Accomplishment as the Norm
The Common European Framework (CEF) standard that Language On adheres to means you have the peace of mind that comes with knowing our methods and materials for instruction are state-of-the-art. We employ the guidelines set by the standards-setting bodies of Europe that have been embraced across that continent.
Something Else You Might Like
In contrast to the rigor of the CEF curriculum, we offer a creative flair in the midst of our instruction. We bring variety and fun in the form of outside resources that are used to round-off the academic approach of the CEF-based work we do. Stimulating discussion that brings out personal experience, opinion and humor make the classroom a place not just for study but for building relationships that often last beyond your time in South Beach.
Accent Reduction and Pronunciation
For those who are already well on the road to fluency but would like to sound more English-savvy or perhaps correct habits that were acquired through your own self-study that are pretty good but not quite good enough for you, we offer instruction for pronunciation and accent reduction. Whether for business purposes or for the person who wishes to perform on stage without the distraction an accent may present, you will find a supportive and experienced staff ready to help you analyze and re-establish the sounds you hope to display when speaking English. We have a wide range of experience with speakers of Japanese, Russian, Spanish, French and a long list of other languages and we understand how to counsel you relative to the habits you have developed from speaking your own native tongue.
What you can do after your English classes in South Beach!
Regal South Beach and IMax Theaters
Movies are one way to enjoy South Beach and of course a great way to practice your English. All of the latest films can be seen in a modern comfortable setting. Combine that with the option of IMax and this theater complex rivals any you may frequent in your home city.
Books & Books
If you are the kind to take in a little light Nietzsche or a great novel such as “To Rise at a Decent Hour”, this bookstore might be the place for you when you are taking refuge from the sunny beach. Its cafe offers significant fare – not just a few muffins. There are regular visits and open discussion with the authors who write the books you find in stock. Open to 11 pm – for the night owls with big ideas and an appetite for even more exposure to English.
Art Deco Historic District
For those who find movies and books too plebeian, Miami Beach has an architectural gem in the form of the Art Deco District which was built between the two world wars at a time when the national mood was playful and upbeat. The Art Deco style of architecture originated in France around the time of World War I and was developed against the backdrop of industrialization in full swing. As such, it embraced modernity and technological development of that era and perpetuated a certain optimism by using bright pastel colors, shiny chrome-driven themes, intricately decorated surfaces and distinct right-angled structures. This area of Miami Beach is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and virtually every building of its 2-3 mile footprint has been renovated, making it a feature of Miami Beach that is not to be missed.
For the active side of the animal, check out Flamingo Park. Here you will find a football field, a soccer field, a swimming pool, Tennis courts, an eight-lane running track with lots of room for roller-blading and biking as well. As if that is not enough, there are handball, basketball and racquetball courts. For those more staid who have children exerting all the effort, there is a tots and bigger kids playground area, while you sprawl on nearby seating to look on.
Of course, a visit to South Beach is not complete without seeing Collins Avenue for the truly funky side of South Beach. Adult entertainment, dancing and music pours out onto the street after dark for those who are looking for a more intense party atmosphere. Young people from all over the world visit and mix to make this quarter a lively and exhilarating experience.

For about $15 one way from South Beach, you too can have a little bit of Cuba. You have not had Arroz Con Pollo until you have tried it in Little Havana in one the local establishments there. Come on a Thursday night and you can treat yourself to some of the best jazz in Miami at the Ball & Chain nightclub, beginning early – around 5pm. After several sets of blistering jazz, they switch over to a dance club setting, providing a little something for everyone of all ages and tastes. Need a hand-rolled cigar – look no further? Little Havana on Calle Ocho is the place.
