Join our LevelUp© courses if you are interested in “building” and not merely “reproducing” your new language.
Our main goal here at eMindSet is to help learners of all ages to develop their second language up to the level of the mother language, building the process together, giving each other the opportunity to adjust our tools to their best convenience.
Why not traditional classes?
The world has changed. A lot. And all institutions need update to new modes and models in order to cope with these events. Yes, also “education” needs to be re-thought. Traditional roles have been modified in the last decades, as a consequence of globalization and the development of new technologies, specially regarding media. All information is reachable now, with a simple click. Yet not everyone can have access to accurate ways of processing that info and making it useful. We need to access more than info. We need a full experience.
“If it’s not relevant, your brain will discard the information. If it matters to you…You will make it yours!”
Putting language in context.
The theory of Communicative Action (Jürgen Habermas, 1981) understands language as the foundational component of society. It is a point of view shared by many thinkers and researchers, in many different ways, all around the world. Language is basic for human development and society. And societies – whether large or minimal – are its place, its habitat. Therefore, nobody can learn a new language in an isolated process, in front of a machine or a book: We need relationships to develop our communication needs, we need backup and feedback from our fellow…we need the frame and the scaffolding for our #LanguageDevelopment. In “Action”.
“We needed a new approach for language learning, and we found the most ancient approach was the right one: As children, in our playroom, or as youngsters on the streets, as adults in a new job…Learning a new language goes beyond grammars and rules, it is a social experience!”
