THE OLD HABIT OF TEACHING THE LISTEN AND REPEAT METHOD

You need to resist the traditional academic "language learning" model, and put all the emphasis on feeling sounds. I know that too many teachers just fall into their habits of teaching the Listen and Repeat method, ie. "pronunciation", and that is simply a waste of time. 


All the emphasis must be on feeling it in the body and making a permanant change in speaking. So it becomes automatic and natural. Because of students too are so locked into the old ways of learning, ie. "thinking too much instead of just doing". Teaching the traditional boring pronunciation, or teach languge, you will get minimal results. it is challenge to break away from old traditional Listen and Repeat methodology - it is much easier for lazy teachers to reach that way, but it wastes so much time getting accomplished.
