A Natural Approach to Language
What is the natural approach?
Remember learning your first language? Probably not. It was a subconscious process! You were so focused on communicating (in order to get what you wanted) that you didn't notice all the work your brain was doing.
Refresh my memory.
Before you ever spoke your first word, you spent a significant amount of time hearing your first language spoken to you. You made associations between the words you heard and that gave them meaning. After you heard it enough, you formed your first words. The more you talked, the more accurate you got. As your vocabulary grew, so did your ability to communicate with others around you.
Learning a second, or a third, language is no different in concept.
The process is much faster because you already understand how language works. As a second language learner, you need to hear the language and understand it, and you really need to use it to communicate what you want.
What does this mean?
This means that instead of working through a textbook with grammar exercises and memorizing long lists of vocabulary, you learn by beginning to communicate in a meaningful way. Your vocabulary and grammar is acquired in context, and your teacher provides helpful explanations as reinforcement after you've already experienced the language for yourself!
The best part?
This natural language learning approach will get you thinking in the language - not about the language - right away in a stress-free acquisition process.
