Do you remember how you learned your native language? Of course not! But we bet it wasn't by suffering long hours of boring grammar lessons... and yet is the language you know best so far!
The thing is, that you learned your language from interaction. Your correct sentences and vocabulary today are a result of the complex interplay between your uniquely human characteristics and the environment in which you grew up.
We follow a method that emphasize interaction as both the means and the ultimate goal of learning a language and are equipping our students with tools for generating unrehearsed language performance 'out there' when they leave the womb of our classrooms. We are concerned with how to facilitate lifelong language learning among our students, not just with the immediate classroom task. And what is very important for our method is that we experience the learning process as a “construction” at both sides, we are looking at learners as partners in a cooperative venture. Always taking into account the learner’s own personal experiences as important contributing elements to classroom learning.
We also attempt to link classroom language learning with language activities outside the classroom making use of real-life situations that necessitate communication. The teacher sets up a situation that students are likely to encounter in real life. We teach through meaningful ways about meaningful topics, as students' motivation to learn comes from their desire to communicate.
At COINED we look at the use (function) of language in context, both its linguistic context and its social, or situational, context (who is speaking, what their social roles are, why they have come together to speak).
