Interesting article.Very interesting man. About learning language.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">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?<br><br>
"They don't work," he replies.</td>
</tr></table></div>
Enjoy the whole article:<br><a href="http://portal.telegraph.co.uk/global/main.jhtml?xml=%2Fglobal%2F2003%2F09%2F12%2Fedlearn11.xml" target="_blank">http://portal.telegraph.co.uk/global...Fedlearn11.xml</a><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Oh Cynthia what a delightful article! I'm sure he must be such an interesting man to meet.<br><br>
another quote from the article to peek interest:
<div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">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."</td>
</tr></table></div>
thanks for sharing!
