Language Activity Facilitators 2

Jim, in a different comment than the one mentioned above, posted the following blockbuster comment here yesterday morning:
…after about 3 weeks of [spending class time occasionally doing grammar], I got the impression from them that it was not helping them. My brightest student said to me “I can’t write and speak as fluently because I’m starting to think about how to say things exactly correctly… it’s slowing me down”….
Here we see a four percenter clearly stating that grammar instruction doesn’t work for him, because he experienced compelling comprehensible input delivered by Jim first.
