Second Language Acquisition in 5 Minutes

Over at the Minnesota Literacy Council’s Tutor Tips Blog, they posted a fabulous video by fabulous Susan!

In less than five minutes, Susan walks us through the process for learning the grammar involved in saying, “I don’t speak English.”

It’s nearly jargon-free and is a really powerful way to understand why learning correct grammar takes so long and why skills can appear to regress at times.

PS – I’d like to point out that this video is on YouTube.  This is just one example of why it’s absolutely ridiculous to block YouTube in schools and other places of learning.
