Hypnosis and Language Learning.
Hammerman, Myrna Lynn
A thorough investiqation is attempted of efforts to apply hypnosis and suggestive learning techniques to education in general and specifically to second language learning. Hypnosis is discussed in terms of its dangers, its definition, and its application. Included in this discussion is a comparison of auto- and hetero-hypnosis, an overview of the suggestibility factor, and a discussion of Dale's nine possible uses of hypnosis and suggestion in education, with reference to current educational and psychological research and second language learning. The Lozanov method of suggestopedia is summarized as an example of suggestive learning techniques specifically used for teaching a second lanquage. There is also a synopsis of up-to-date research in hypnosis and education, and a review of current experimentation with hypnotic and suggestopedic teaching techniques in the West today. After a thorough examination of the material presented and the resulting implications, it is concluded that hypnosis of a light plane, and particularly hypnotic technique, can be a valuable tool for educational purposes and for language learning.
