This picks up on Jake’s comment:
We cannot state enough that comprehension-based teaching is 100% different from other ways of teaching languages. It is different from what form-focused language teaching does.
Focusing on form exercises our brains. It is conscious learning, much like memorizing vocabulary or conducting an experiment in science class or learning the reasons for the American Revolution in social studies.
Focusing on meaning via NTCI (non-targeted input) using artwork to express that meaning happens best in what is more like a workshop setting, such as in a drama or a music or an art class.
