Desuggestopedia: Chapter 6 Desuggestopedia= Desuggest limitations on learning -Originator: Georgi Lozanov  Main idea: Help students eliminate the feeling that they cannot be successful and the negative associations they may have toward studying and thus help them to overcome the barriers to learning. o Stimulate mental reserves through integration of the fine arts o Positive approach  Classroom / Setting:  bright and colorful  cheerful/ positive environment  relaxed atmosphere  paintings  grammar posters: peripheral learning =absorb facts effortlessly Teacher:  teacher is the authority in the classroom  student must trust and respect him/ her  speaks confidently, gives students impression that learning target language is easy and enjoyable  positive suggestion: tells them that they will be successful =enhance students’ self- confidence  use pantomime to outline meaning Students:  get new identities: select target language names and choose new occupations  students’ feelings are in the center of this method  students should feel relaxed and confident so that they will not need to try hard to learn the language, but it will just come naturally and easily ... (p.79)  new identities should help them feel more secure and more open to learning Material:  texts / lengthy dialogues (that pertain to everyday life situations)  two columns: target language and native language  notes on vocabulary and grammar in boldface items in the dialogue  rhythmic instruments (songs)  using fine arts is important in Desuggestopedia classes Teaching/learning process: o Receptive phase: Teacher presents dialogue during two concerts (classical music) 1. Concert:  teacher reads dialogue (dramatic reading), matching voice to the rhythm and pitch of the music. o Ex: Mozart, Bach  students follow target language dialogue as the teacher reads it 2. Concert:  teacher reads dialogue in normal speed  students just listen and relax o Homework suggestion: read text again before sleeping and in the morning after waking up o Active phase  students engage in various activities designed to help them gain facility with the new material  Ex: games, songs, role plays, etc. Activities: Creative Adaptions= to learn new material and use it spontaneously o Such as:  dramatizations  role-plays  games  songs (with miming)  dancing  Question-and-answer exercises Language focus:  Vocabulary  Speaking communicatively (dialogues)  Grammar only minimally dealt with no formal tests o this would threaten the relaxed atmosphere  evaluation through students’ class performance  focus on communicative intent, no focus on linguistic form of linguistic message  Role of native language:  used in translation of dialogue to make the meaning clear  teacher uses native language in class if necessary  Errors:  Errors are corrected gently, using soft voice  Advantages:  relaxed atmosphere  nice environment  focus on communication  learning in playful manner  self-confidence of learners  Disadvantages:  Is grammar learnt when only being displayed on the wall -> written work?  difficult with a large number of students  preparation time–write texts(extra positive)–find music that goes with it=creativity  absence of test
