Rennert International was founded in 1973 by César Rennert, a former faculty member at New York University. Mr. Rennert's mission was to create a high quality language school that offered small classes with a focus on conversational teaching methods.
"We wanted an alternative from the way languages were taught at the university level," Mr. Rennert says. "We were forced to teach lots of grammar there, there was very little conversation in class, and the large number of students in classes made learning a language difficult."
Rennert started with one classroom, one teacher and one language. Almost four decades later, César Rennert's small enterprise has grown into a hub of international education and communication in New York City and South Beach, Miami.
Rennert's business today encompasses English and foreign language instruction, a translation and interpretation services division, a Teen English program and an English as a Second Language teacher training program.
Quality teacher training and professional development to empower trainers, teachers and learners.
Our Guiding Principles
- Our trainings first and foremost focus on the process of learning. By understanding factors that affect learning among individuals, we believe teachers can make more effective decisions.
- We view teaching as a decision-making process in which teachers consider various options to facilitate the learning process. Rather than viewing teaching as a prescribed set of techniques, we see teaching as a dynamic engagement between individuals learners and teachers.
- An experiential hands-on approach
- Much of our approach is based on theories of experiential learning. In workshops, participants engage in activities and reflect on their own classroom experiences so as to develop their own theories. These ideas are then complemented by theory from experts in the field.
- Reflective practice
- Teachers learn by doing and reflecting upon their own experiences and beliefs about teaching and learning. Developing reflective skills enables teachers to make informed intelligent decisions for the classroom and empowers them as they work on their own practice.
