Abstract: >>>Check out the Tim Murphey Tips Playlist on YouTube (<<<
If we just depend on occasional lessons in schools, we are not realizing the potential of our everyday learning environments for allowing young learners to learn not only foreign languages but also “learning how to learn.” Parents and regular primary school teachers can help young learners learn and reinforce occasional lessons from language informants. When primary school teachers and parents model good learning strategies, they teach more valuable simply the language, they model “learning how to learn.”
