Talk:Language Learning

From OLPC

Jump to: navigation, search

hi i've done a lot of research into language learning and would like some ideas to be included on any "Language Learning" page

Colingo may also be of interest, but other than video i can't quite figure out what the pedagogy is is yet..

somewhere on this wiki someone wrote something like "trying to fit old ideas into this new system may not be successful".. i'd agree.. most foreign language teaching methods and tools serve a minority of learners.. most students who try end up learning they're "no good" at foreign language.. new tools are needed

most traction in language learning happens with interaction.. old tools like flashcards work with only the most motivated learners.. what we need to learn language is "comprehensible input" and "meaningful interaction" with good (native) speakers..
