experience is basic for the theory of the
"4 - Skills"
You can only recognize what you already know
2) To recognize something you know, you need to get only 25% of an information,
75% is completed by what is already stored in your brain.
is e.g. the reason, why we can read only very slow, starting to learn
a new language and why we can not understand somebody talking very quickly
in this new language. Our brain is not yet filled up with the new information.
Consequently teaching has to make it easy for students to get the necessary
information first. This exactly happens through
listening, speaking, reading & writing,
you will hardly forget anything you learned this way. You feel secure
about the new language. Every hour you learn more and more to build
up a strong basement. You can't loose it anymore and from a certain
point you are able to study the language on your own.
At least you can use your new language nearly
like your mothertoungue, cause you didn't learn it through translation.
