Theories of comprehensible input argue that it is the key to acquiring language. The emphasis is on subconscious acquisition, which contrasts with the theory that we learn language through conscious learning, skills building, and the drilling of grammar. Follow these steps to incorporate this technique into your language learning, thus optimising the process.
I think you have great suggestions. I'm learning to do my beginner Spanish lessons this way. I'm a non-native speaker of Spanish who teaches it at the beginner level in public school. Once students "buy in" they can really learn a great deal, but it's tough to get some students on board. I think this guy is a fantastic example of how to do it: "Dreaming Spanish" on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCouyFdE9-Lrjo3M_2idKq1A/playlists
I like Martina Bex's materials as well. I have bought some of them from Teachers Pay Teachers. This is a great distance from how I learned Spanish, which is a VERY good thing, as I think it was very inefficient and boring, and I am probably the only person from those high school Spanish classes who continued on! I never want to be that teacher!!
Spot on! Great job! I just left a local Spanish course because it was teacher and worksheet focused. I tried to incorporate some of these ideas into our classes but the teacher wasn't having it! Good on ya for using critical thinking and active research in your language teaching and learning.
