Learn these and your ability to express yourself quickly and easily will grow exponentially. That's why it's a great place for language beginners to start.
A Study of The Power of Games to Motivate Learners Teaching languages is no easy task We have a lot of empathy with language teachers. MFL is, without doubt, a difficult subject to teach - more difficult than most. Teachers need to somehow motivate students to learn lots of data (words) which are also annoyingly fiddly and work to some arcane grammatical rules. That would be OK if every student in the class was a model student and prepared to knuckle under...but that's not the universe we live in. In reality many students tune out as soon as the tough stuff comes long. [...]
When you use the power of Discovery Learning coupled with placing words in context and then wrapping the whole experience in a game - a strange thing happens. Picking up words becomes automatic and almost effortless.
We learned in a natural way - picking up the words we wanted to know, when we wanted to know them. It's called Discovery Learning and it's the most powerful way to learn a language.
Learning a language can harness the brain's joy of learning new things, but leave you with something of permanent value, in a way that neither drugs nor video games ever could.
The unique aspect of KLOO is that even absolute beginners can play and instantly start making sentences up to 10 words long. No study, no grammar, no work - they'll learn how to make thousands of sentences in seconds.

This is form of learning is called Discovery Learning and it is the natural way we built our vocabulary when we were small. [...]
Pay Attention. The White Board is centre stage in most classrooms. MFL Resources for the classroom People of a certain age (alas this includes me) are always impressed by the technology in today's classrooms, especially the ubiquitous interactive white board. The nearest I came to hi-tech teacher resources in my day was an overhead projector! Are they used anymore? Smart phones are the norm As impressed as I am, I know a large group of important people who are not impressed......children. White boards are all they have ever known and when I asked [...]
