For those of you teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language
For those of you learning English as your Second or a Foreign Language
consider these facts:
A language is a system of sounds to communicate meanings and ideas ...
These meanings and ideas we humans think about come from our culture ...
THEREFORE, WE CANNOT SEPARATE A LANGUAGE
FROM ITS CULTURE.
Now, think about how humans learn their first language and culture...
from the care-givers--their mothers.
(It's not a coincidence that our first language is called our mother
So, isn't it obvious, then,
that the best way to learn
another language is to learn it the way we learned our first language--
from the songs and stories of childhood.
