01 Project Summary
This new attititude towards Grammar has helped me establish a real 'English-speaking' community based on acquisition-reach learning in a medium size town of Hungary near the Ukrainian border.I have the intention to learn my students before teaching them therefore it is my studens's need I focus on when selecting the material for the lessons. All the groups from the very beginning use only English in class as they feel safe.Slips,errors, and attempts are considered as opportunities to learn from instead of mistakes to get punished for. The linguistic analysis has no part in the classes as it is left for those who need the language for analytical purposes i.e. learning about it rather than actually learning it.
I agree from the bottom of my heart that person centered teaching is an art rather than a science and I feel closer to perform it with the approach gained from this project.
