Transcript of Suggestopedia
Topic: Suggestopedia Key Elements of Suggestopedia Suggestopedia is a teaching method which is based on a modern understanding of how the human brain works and how we learn most effectively. It was developed by the Bulgarian doctor and psychotherapist Georgi Lozanov Results Realisation Some of the key elements of Suggestopedia include a rich sensory learning environment (pictures, colour, music, etc.), a positive expectation of success and the use of a varied range of methods: dramatised texts, music, active participation in songs and games, etc. Suggestopedia adopts a carefully structured approach, using four main stages as follows:
A preparatory stage in which students are helped to relax and move into a positive frame of mind, with the feeling that the learning is going to be easy and fun.
*First Concert - "Active Concert"
This involves the active presentation of the material to be learnt. For example, in a foreign language course there might be the dramatic reading of a piece of text, accompanied by classical music.
*Second Concert - "Passive Review"
The students are now invited to relax and listen to some Baroque music, with the text being read very quietly in the background. The music is specially selected to bring the students into the optimum mental state for the effortless acquisition of the material.
The use of a range of games, puzzles, etc. to review and consolidate the learning.
Theory of language -Lozanov assumes that the only major linguistic problems in the language classroom are memorization and integration.
-If the students remember the words and patterns of the language and integrate them into their personalities, the students have acquired the language and the teacher has done all that needs to be done.
-Lozanov emphasizes the importance of experiencing language material in “whole meaningful texts”
Types of learning and teaching activities Activities in the syllabus include imitation, question and answer, and role play
Activities more original to Suggestopedia are the listening activities, which concern the text and text vocabulary of each unit
The students first look at and discuss a new text with the teacher. In the second reading, students relax and listen to the teacher read the text in a certain way.
