And what is correctness?
Well, I really mean that nasty concept………..shhh!…..grammar!
There is one time, and one time only, to learn about grammar.
When everyone present is in powerful engaged dialogue.
Because at such times the our brains are optimally and maximally activated.
At these times our brain is fully focussed on what’s going on in the current conversation at that time.
The part of the brain needed for conversation is also the part of the brain needed for the goal of language-learning: conversation!
In other words the path and the goal truly are one.
The goal is conversation, so learn through conversation!
Only then can grammar land in fertile soil, meaning the parts of the brain involved in real-time dialogue.
We all know of people who have heard so much grammar in school, but who are unable to have a conversation.
In so many cases grammar lands in the recitation part of the brain, but not in the interactive conversational part of the brain.
The problem is that we then know a lot of grammar, but we can’t use it!
What’s the solution?
Keep grammar as part of a real conversation.
Then you can use it later during other real conversations!
