Information about Destrebecq

Educational Framework: I believe reading an average of 20 minutes a day in French because it significantly increases children`s speech, cognitive and comprehension skills. Furthermore, for me it is more important that the student UNDERSTANDS the material rather than perfectly memorizes rules or context. When learning a new language, memorization is where it can easily fail. Effective language education lies primarily on teaching the student the language in the very same manner he/she learned their first language. At first, there should be no writing, just listening and repetition. Engaging the student to participate, and in essence, fall in love with the language will prove greater success than a rigid, strict or dry teaching style. For example: (Don`t write this down, just say it with me.) "C`est" in French means "It is" in English. "la" means, "the". and "vie" means "life". Together, "C’est la vie", means "that is life". In English, words ending in -able are predominantly equal to their French counterparts. For example, "table" remains "table" but the ending "able" sound is the same. "Comfortable" becomes "confortable". With what we have learned above, can you tell me how you would say "the table"? .... Correct, "La table". Now, how would you say, "It is comfortable"? . . . Correct, "C`est confortable". When the pupil speaks the language, the information should come from knowledge and not memorization. That is achieved by teaching the language through dialogue and conversation with your pupil and creating memories from the information you have taught. This is my teaching style.
