Angie Dodd has brought to our attention something that invites – if not demands -some kind of response. If not us, then who?
Hi Ben –
Should we respond to this somehow? It’s from a sales pitch for Middlebury Interactive Languages courses:
Learning a new language isn’t easy but that doesn’t mean instruction should be watered down. In fact, recent studies show that challenging students with rigorous curriculum and content that is just out of their grasp is critical to accelerating language learning. This pedagogical principle, known as comprehensible input, is woven into all Middlebury Interactive’s courses. While the students will not understand all of the vocabulary and grammar presented to them, this immersive technique will provide opportunities for students to use language appropriately beyond their current skill level
