At QTalk, we believe that our adult minds are different from children’s but when it comes to learning we discover that children have a lot to teach us. They learn faster because they are not yet handicapped with the reflex of logic, wanting to assign information to different categories.
We're updating our website this month, it's provided a lot of discussion about what we do, and how a teacher needs to awaken the language learner within each student, before the student can become a true speaker of the new language, that is, produce spontaneous, meaningful expression without thinking.
Have you had this experience in your teaching? Are your students able to tap into their "inner language learner" in your classes?
