In the 1980s Dr. Stephen Krashen made an announcement.
“Language acquisition does not happen by learning grammar rules.”
Oh, and he has a Ph.D in grammar.
Take a look.
Good news, right?
No more boring classrooms…
No more grammar drills…
No more torturing students while stealing their time and money!
Because nothing happend.
40 years later and the schools continue to ignore the reseearch.
Can you blame them?
According to the research firm Ambient Insights, in 2015 classroom and textbook English industry made $31.3 billion.
To the English schools, Krashen’s ideas are dangerous.
But now you know the truth.
What changes will you make?
