What Do We Need to Learn and Acquire a Language?
Published: February 28, 2017
In Foundation Training, we spend the first morning developing an understanding of the process we all went through in learning our native tongue. GrapeSEED’s basis in the Theory of Natural Language Acquisition is fundamental in understanding how the program accomplishes its goal: helping students acquire and refine their language skills across all modalities of communication (reading, writing, speaking, listening) in a natural manner.
Make sure you’re providing your students with plenty of the following:
The recipe for language acquisition:
- Providing an environment for repeated exposure
- Ensuring time to absorb new sounds, patterns, words
- Developing the ability to think in the language
- Giving plenty of chances to speak using the language they’re learning
Feel free to contact your GrapeSEED trainer. They will be happy to help!
