About

Eureka! A great post on how to teach English naturally!


I usually don't write too much about the other things I read on the web. I find for the most part, a dearth of really good writing about language and especially teaching language. Not being elitist but most often the underlying ethos is focused on delivering lessons in a "studious" fashion where the teacher plays their role and the learner theirs and we go through the motions.

I believe that we all have a great capactiy to learn a language, even a second language, even those with learning disabilities or other factors impeding instruction and acquisition. An amazing capacity. However what happens is we abandon the model of our youth and how we learned our mother tongue - instead, we apply a very conscious and detached form of learning which ultimately makes things so much more difficult.

The Linguist on Language has written a Bang On , Eureka! kind of blog post on Teaching Language Naturally. I highly shout this out and it is great reading and essential advice to the language teacher. It might even transform HOW you teach. Please take a look....
