Interesting article.Very interesting man. About learning language.

Quote:
Michel's rules contradict all you learnt at school. Number one is: "No memorising or rote learning," closely followed by "No taking notes", "No homework" and "No reviewing the lessons mentally at the end of day". It sounds a bit extreme, I observe - what's so terrible about notes?

"They don't work," he replies.
Enjoy the whole article:

Oh Cynthia what a delightful article! I'm sure he must be such an interesting man to meet.

another quote from the article to peek interest:

Quote:
He cites the commonest definition of a noun. "You have pupils saying: 'Ah yes, a noun is a person, place or thing.' Because that's what they learnt in school. And then I say, but what about 'happiness', is that a noun? And they stop dead. They say it might be an adjective, or whatever comes into their heads. And you get stuck."
thanks for sharing!
