Noam Chomsky first identified the innate language-learning skill, this magic part of the brain he calls the language module. This neurological marvel allows children to process an enormous amount of random information and naturally store it in place holders (during their sleep mostly), just as if they had created a vast network of cubicles in their mind. Unfortunately, this module gradually goes dormant from the age of 7 as we acquire the main infrastructure of our language.

The challenges is - how can we wake up this dormant language module?

Have you heard of the QTalk method, or have you tried the QTalk method in your classroom? 
What other instructional methods or techniques are able to accomplish this instant awakening of language learning capacity?
