Intuitive Thinking in Foreign Language Learning.
Varela-Ibara, Jose L.
Hawaii Language Teacher, v13 n1 p4-14 Feb 1971
Linguistic and psychological factors which bear on the concept of "intuitive thinking" are analyzed with respect to second language learning. Analytical thinking is considered as being logical, cognitive, and objective while intuitive thinking is considered to be creative, constructive, and non-analytical. Following a brief discussion of Piaget's theories concerning language and thought, the author comments on the relationship of intuitive thinking and prior knowledge. Concluding remarks emphasize the intimate relationship of thought and language. (RL)
