A Neurobiological Theory and Method of Language Acquisition

Daniel S. Janik
Intercultural Communications College, Honolulu

This monograph is NOT about teaching - it’s about EFFECTIVE LEARNING from a perspective that leads to an entirely new form of learning and language acquistion involving transformational discovery, mentorship and interpretation.
Its roots are as old as Socrates. Linguists, biologists, anatomists, physiologists, psychologists, sociologists and physicians in the tradition of the "German School" of learning have contributed over the centuries to what is now nothing less than a revolution in learning, and the “business of teaching.”
In this seminal work, the author has drawn from contemporary clinical and experimental data beginning with effective traumatic learning to develop a Neurobiological theory of learning, including methodology and tenets. When applied in a traditional language classroom setting, the results have been nothing short of astounding.
With its focus on language acquisition and learning, this monograph is a treasure-trove of new information for educators, linguists, "teachers," tutors, psychologists, physicians and researchers interested in transforming a field that has remained in the "dark ages" for too long.
