Charting the Course of Teaching and Learning in a Networked World
Hi dear friends here
Can u see this group and add more useful suggestions 2 enhance it?
In childhood our brain has an ability to hear the speech sounds (phonemes) of all languages in our environment that is why children can easily learn one or a few languages and speak them without an accent.
Adults lose this ability; they see things through the lens of our native language, which results in subconscious cross-translation into native language of all information given in the course of learning a foreign language.
To become efficient learners of a foreign language adults need a new method of learning a foreign language as a skill on a subconscious and conscious levels that will automatically turn off cross-translation and will form the English speech center in the brain.
