Ever wonder why only a minority of students reach a high level of proficiency in a foreign language, and, why do most of those students not pass Elementary levels showing more than a limited communicative capacity?
This simple question calls for reflection on the need to use educational methods which accelerate and enhance the learning process, giving everyone the opportunity to quickly reach significant linguistic mastery.
The Learning Code is a practical guide to teaching foreign languages, benefiting teachers, parents, students and professionals alike. Its unique method focuses on the concept that learning linguistic skills can be notably enhanced through the use of Visual, Auditory and kinesthetic systems.
The book’s innovation is the combination between the Total Physical Response, Storytelling, Role-playing and Simultation techniques which work together to speed up language acquisition times through a multisensory approach.
What does this mean?
Foreign language is most effectively learned when all five senses are engaged.
– Chapters one through seven address common obstacles students face while
learning a second language and provides strategies and possible solutions.
– Chapters eight and nine analyze the TPR method.
– Chapters ten and eleven offer a series of lessons for the first linguistic levels.
