I saw this on moretprs. A cambridge study saying that language learning is unconscious:
In other news, I went to a workshop today with Teri Wiechart. It was a session for teachers who are already using TPRS and it was, what she called, a “teacher talk” session where she answered questions about our problem areas or anything bothering us. It was great. I’ve had a lot of previous contact with her before and she asked me if I wanted to practice circling in front of everybody and get coached. I obliged. It’s scary to do that, especially with natives in the room, but I think I did okay, she was very complimentary and praising, it was nice. One of the best things about the workshop was I got to meet Jeff Brickler and Tamula Drumm of our PLC! They are great people and I was very happy to be able to meet them. Hopefully I’ll be able to meet more members of our PLC in the future. We talked up the PLC quite a bit (I felt comfortable doing so because there weren’t any teachers from my district) so you might see an influx of Ohioans.
Speaking of Ohio, has the regional coaching workshops with you, Bryce and Sabrina idea fallen through?
