When we were growing up and learning our first language, we listened and watched for a year or two, then spoke then began to look at words, trying to get the hang of reading, then tried to write our names and other words. Those are the four basic skills but it helps if you are good at mime too!
I am interested in how we learn as adults, whether the model above is still the best way to learn. Some adults have come to rely mostly on writing things down in order to remember them. Many adults don´t have enough fun when they set out to learn new things. These are ideas we can explore in the coming weeks.
