I believe that children are equipped with an innate ability to learn languages naturally and subconsciously and that children learn better through play-based hands-on experiences because they can make sense of ideas from real life experience. I also believe that children develop greater fluency in a language when they are naturally exposed to the language they are learning.
I am a firm believer of Stephen Krashen’s natural approach to second language acquisition which states that children get the message, they listen and absorb, and when they feel safe, secure and motivated, it will just come out naturally. For this reason, my teaching approach focuses on language acquisition rather than language learning. Therefore, we focus on making learning a language natural, engaging and meaningful.
