So can adults or older children , they should learn the many ways of using early childhood ? It’s easier than you think. What’s more , I’ll tell you that you as an adult , it will be even easier to learn a foreign language , because you can build new knowledge on this already possessed , using the technique of associations. Remember, the more you know, the more you can learn - but more on that in another article .
Learning the language of the child is an example of the so-called non-formal learning. The child does not know that he learns and teaches the whole body , using all their senses : sight , hearing, touch, taste , smell in learning the language . Examples could be multiplied :
- Small Kazio runs ( motor experience ) somewhere carelessly , and my mom yells at him : “Do not Run ” - Kazik associate a particular movement with the word ” run “
- Little Maggie walks into the kitchen , where my dad was burnt scrambled eggs and awful smell ( olfactory sensation ) . Tata, opening the window shouting but the smell ! Gretel olfactory impression naturally associated with the word ” stink “
- Small Grześ grabbed the salt shaker contents , licked finger ( taste sensation ) and grimaced horribly . Mom said, ” and see how salty ? ” . Again, the impression of smell + the word ” salty “
And so on, children absorb the world : looking at things , touch them , hear , taste . The same with learning to communicate through language. Did your parents teach you in the way that sitting still in a chair telling you : how come Aunt Wiesia , say Kaz her “good morning” and ” my name is Kazik ” ? Or maybe it was different ? Wiesia aunt came and smiling broadly approached and reached out to Kazik in a gesture of greeting and said , “Good morning Kazik . I’m the aunt Wiesia ” . With mirror neurons ( this also in another article ) , if not the first repetition of the scene , it ‘s a second or subsequent Kazio already stretched out his hand and answered , “Good morning , I’m Kazik ” .
About all these principles are well aware and use them actors who learn by rote role. And, as you remember from visits to the theater , they are not text length ” Ode to Youth ,” which many generations of high school students had to cram , but much longer manuscripts .
Yes , the actors learn as children : in this context, visual, or auditory kinestetycznym in which new knowledge will be used . Do not sit in a chair and not wkuwają page after page of silent or quiet monotone voice , but changing tempo , tone of voice , whisper , shout , gesticulate , go to the stage , etc. But in the same context will recall from memory the text on the stage! Just actor tied to a chair and make him recite the role and forget most of the text !
And like most kids in school and adult classes learn languages ?
Vocabulary learning : The teacher writes on the tables and gives the translation of a word or students look up new words in the text of the printed and writes for a translation .
