Neuroscience and teaching Japanese

In 2012 I went to a seminar taught by the director of CIE.ca (Canadian Institute of English), a PhD in Neuroscience.

The course taught laguage teachers a couple dozen methods of teaching.

These methods were based on neuroscience and how our brains learn.

LONG STORY SHORT

our brains learn when our bodies are active.

So,

sitting at a desk, in a classroom…. is THE worst environment for learning.

And,

boring lessons … are the worst way to teach anything.

 

with those thought in mind, I am posting thoughts on NeuroScience and teaching Japanese. Many more to come.
