Second Language Acquisition - Integration of Self and Awareness - Intrinsic motivation - Flow - Energetic investment - Universal human being - Teaching - Learning.
The successful acquisition of a second or foreign language requires focus, motivation, and positive feedback. This case study of French adult students of English illustrates that Gattegno's Silent Way is more than a teaching methodology. It is a science of education that integrates the self and awareness in the learning and teaching processes. This integration facilitates the personal evolution of Gattegno's 'pre-human' to the 'universal human' who is permanently aware of his/her awareness. The resulting experience of 'flow' leads to a positive feedback loop that in turn contributes to the student's enjoyment of acquiring a second language.
