How Adults Learn



To learn a language, you must be exposed to it. Exposure is enough for learners to understand new words. Children and adults have the same learning conditions. Learning a language is an active, creative process. If you hear a new expression once, that’s enough.  You need to communicate in the language to learn it. Making mistakes is a problem when you’re learning. If I’m stressed, nervous or bored, I’ll take in less.

Learning Strengths and Preferences



People learn new things better when they can utilize their personal learning style preferences, e.g. visual, kinesthetic, etc. Learning Style Preferences can be a result of cultural factors, such as how a student learned at school, as well as the result of strengths and styles. In class, it’s important to present new language and ADAPT activities to accommodate a range of learning style preferences. In group classes, it’s essential that we include a RICH MIX of activities, to appeal to different students’ strengths and preferences. If students find particular activities difficult, we should avoid them
