It took me almost 30 years of teaching foreign languages to close the circle and combine experience with shortcuts learned in the classroom. The result is this method: An attempt to give our teaching spaces the authenticity they deserve and to provide our students with meaningful opportunities to acquire a second language dynamically and naturally.
TIMonthemat™ is based on the following principles:
1. Our brains are programmed to acquire language.
2. Our brains seek meaning.
3. Positive emotions enhance learning.
4. Movement facilitates connections and keeps us engaged.
5. Language immersion promotes cultural awareness.
