  1. How fascinating is Ben’s relation, almost equation, of learning to orally comprehend with learning how to read:
    “When the bricks are presented from the beginning of the program of study via sound and thus as integrated and contiguous pieces of the overall house, as the learner’s mind points to each brick countless times in countless arrangements of words (we call that reading), then the student enjoys inhaling the language without even being consciously aware of it. The kids are happy because they can actually see the image of the house, the language always conveying meaning, coming a bit more into focus each day.

    Along these lines, I have come across a brief reference to some recent research that shows many dyslexic students also have problems with aural comprehension. Such problems would seem to precede the dyslexia. Good skills in auditory imaging tied to flexible anticipatory sense of overall oral gist prepare the way for skill in reading. And a bit later, vice versa.

    Which is why the John Piazza thread on getting Latin students to hear the language is so important. Thanks, Frank.
    And welcome back from Greece et al and Robert welcome back from Germany when that happens in August. And Drew you are back as well? I think about your experience in that German classroom last month and then think of Robert’s questions – it kind of makes me laugh when I think about it. YOU should have been teaching the class to those fuddy duddies. I think I’ll go make Robert’s comments a regular blog entry, with his questions and answers so we would only have to search his name to find it.
