Hamamatsu JALT:

Consciousness-Raising Activities

Date: Sunday, June 13th, 2004 Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Speaker: Dan Frost

The traditional approach to most teaching is to tell learners the rules first, after which students have to try and fit their conceptions within that rules-based framework. Mathematics is a good example, where formulas have been worked out in advance by the experts, and learners simply need to memorize the formulas. However, language is not so neat and consistent, and is notoriously resistant to rules, but language does reveal very interesting patterns, both in its grammar and its pronunciation. For learners to notice such patterns, on their own power, can make learning enjoyable and maybe more effective. In this session we will look at several ways this can be done, for both child and adult learners of English.
