PEDAGOGIC TECHNIQUES

The pedagogic learning of languages can be described as being similar to the initial native language acquisition process in children who acquire certain language elements at certain times according to a natural sequence that involves the language center of the brain. Speaking and listening are the skills acquired first with reading and writing skills that follow. Learning language in a more natural way has been proven to be more successful in much less time and with less stress and frustration for the student.

 

LANGUAGE LEARNING VERSES OTHER FORMS OF LEARNING

Language acquisition is unlike the learning of traditional academic subjects that require memorization of data or information, critical reasoning or interpretation. It does not involve the application of mathematical equations or tables of elements such as in chemistry. It does not require tactile skills or even precision. Language learning involves inherent cognitive skills that are enhanced through the pedagogic teaching techniques of repetition and word association. This is reinforced through assistance of the five senses; hearing, seeing, tasting, smelling and touch for reinforcement.
