(This item cannot be returned.)
This book illustrates that Gattegno's Silent Way integrates the self and awareness in the learning and teaching process. It encourages silent focus, intrinsic motivation, and ongoing curiosity. 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.
