Sendai JALT:

Desuggestopedia and Other Methods of Accelerating Language Learning

Date: Sunday, January 27th, 2002 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Charles Adamson

Want to increase your students' learning? Want to make your classes more fun and effective at the same time? This month's meeting will describe the latest advances in accelerated learning, with particular attention being paid to improvements to Suggestopedia (now called Desuggestopedia), a teaching method that accelerates learning by coordinating the suggestions that the student receives while learning. This is primarily accomplished by treating the pedagogic, the psychological, and astistic aspects as equals. In this presentation, Charles Adamson reports practial aspects of desuggestopedia gleaned from a conference entitled "The Next Frontier in Learning: Accelerated Learning" (Conference of the International Alliance of Learning, Jan 16-20, 2002). Adamson's report will focus on what teachers can bring into their classrooms.
To gain a more complete understanding of the themes that will be addressed by both the conference and this presentation, see the conference website at
