[3] Grammar Study Really Isn't Necessary

Most language education is completely <span style={{textDecoration: underline}}>backward.

In this episode, I talk about the why a grammar-first approach is totally unnatural and ineffective. You don’t need to study grammar in order to speak a foreign language.

Liberate yourself from outdated methods and start enjoying language learning.

Summary:

  • Children don’t study grammar or literacy until long after they’re already fluent speakers.
  • The idea that we can’t adopt strategies from kids is nonsense.
  • I cover exactly how you can learn a language without getting bogged by grammar books.
  • I go into what 'language chunking' is.
