Acquiring a language involves the entire process of listening, speaking, reading, and writing, and its purpose is to communicate with the other person in a seamless manner. In this process, children can be very active participants, and the Active Learners at Active Learning Center learn and acquire languages expressed in letters that seem challenging, sometimes through the body movement strategy, and sometimes through the story-telling strategy.
Children’s native tongues vary from Korean, English, to other languages. However, the language acquisition strategy learned by body movements or story-telling is one of the main learning strategies at our Active Learning Program developed based on psycho-educational clinical research for children who have difficulty in language development, and is proven to be very effective in acquiring their mother tongue or second language.
The Active Learning Center uses a variety of language acquisition strategies to suit a child’s needs; a case study of Working Memory Training, its another language acquisition strategy, can be found at the following link!
