2) Acquiring habits of speech

8

Six theoretical components of Suggestopedia

Authority
Infantilization
Double-planedness
Intonation
Rhythm
Concert pseudp-passiveness

10

Authority

People remember best and are most influenced by info coming from an authoritative source.

11

Infantilization (Parent-Child)

The learner takes part in role playing, games and songs

12

Double-planedness

The learner learns from the environment in which the instruction takes place and from the effect of direct instruction

13

Intonation, Rhythm and Concert pseudo-passiveness

Induced a relaxed attitude in the learner

14

Suggestopedia Objectives (2)

1) Deliver advanced conversational proficiency quickly
2) Suggest students that they set such goals for themselves

15

Suggestopedia Syllabus (3)

1) 30 days / 10 units of study / 4 hours / 1200 words
2) Students are expected to speak extempore rather than from memorized lines
3) Written tests

16

Parts of the Class in Suggestopedia

1) Oral review section
2) New material is presented and discussed
3) Séance and concert session

17

Suggestopedia Activities (4)

Listening activities
Imitation
Question and answer
Role play

18

Learner's Role (2)

Maintain a pseudo-passive state
Immerse themselves in the procedures of the method

19

Teacher's Role (3)

3) Create situations in which the learner is most suggestible and to present linguistic material in a way most likely to encourage positive reception and retention by the learner
2) Show absolute confidence in the method
3) Display fastidious conduct in manners and dress

20

Suggestopedia Procedure

1) Previously learned material is used as basis for discussion
2) New material is presented and discussed
3) Concert pseudo-passiveness

21

Micro-studies

Focused on grammar, vocabulary and precise questions and answers.
Example: What should one do in a hotel room if you get stuck in the bathroom?

22

Macro-studies

emphasis on role playing and wider-ranging language. Example: Describe what jotería is

23

New material is presented and discussed

1) Looking over a new dialogue and its native language translation to discuss issues of important grammar/vocabulary/content
2) Conducted in the target language but students can answer in whatever language they feel comfortable with
3) Students view it as interesting and undemanding

24

Concert pseudo-passiveness

1) Music is played in a quiet room. Teacher enters into the mood of the music and reads a text as students read along.
2) Music is played and the teacher reads again, this time the students just listen

25

Suggestopedia Conclusion

1)There are techniques and procedures in Suggestopedia that may prove useful in a foreign language classroom
2) The art of language teaching will benefit very little from the pseudo-science of Suggestology
3) Suggestive-desuggestive ritual placebo-system
