Our Philosophy:

Comprehensible Input answers the question of how the brain acquires language. At Elevate, we specialize in building a solid foundation for teachers in what CI is: the research behind it, why it matters, and how to master techniques that can be applied to a wide variety of CI strategies and approaches. This foundation is then supported to help teachers deepen their practice. All of it is within the framework of culturally responsive teaching as well.

Because we believe that anyone can learn a new language through comprehensible and communicatively embedded input, and that language teachers deserve solid, sustained support all year long, we provide an array of training opportunities and an online membership for teachers in the DC metro area and beyond.
