Lux Language strives to provide quality language learning for anyone who desires to improve their communication skills and confidence in their second language.
Lux Language is owned and directed by Amanda Iott, a 15-year resident of Jackson, a wife and a mother of three. She holds a bachelor's degree in Spanish and Biology and a master's in TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language). She has enjoyed teaching English, Spanish, and Latin to learners of all ages for more than 10 years.
Amanda uses a variety of methods to teach language depending on the students' levels, goals and target languages. For the most part, she focuses on the communicative approach with the natural approach and a little grammar-translation when needed. Spanish classes use Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling. TPRS is a unique and effective method of language learning that all ages enjoy. This is not a traditional language class of grammar and vocabulary drills, but instead uses stories for language acquisition. Students will be reading Spanish during their first class.
