Not sure how effective this way of teaching is, though you can't deny its influence on the communicative method of teaching. Certainly makes good food for thought.

Kassandra Saravia's curator insight, October 8, 2013 10:23 PM

This is a very good insight to one of the ways that different languages are taught, whether it is English or another language. Peronsally I don't feel that this quite works because it is feeding them the language and having them simply memorize words instead of having them understand it and think in the language which would then allow them to grow as well. It also doesn't seem very plausible to be done in school because it would take away from learning the lessons and not help develop their conversational skills in said language.
