Intensive Methods of Language Teaching. Reports from the Language Centre for Finnish Universities No. 33.
This publication discusses the use of intensive teaching methods for language instruction, also known as suggestopedia ("suggestopaedy"). The theory of suggestopedia, various methods developed from the theory, and their applications are described. A description of Lozanov's suggestopedic method precedes a discussion about the various directions intensive teaching based on suggestopedia has taken in different countries. A more detailed discussion of recent developments in intensive teaching in the Soviet Union follows and includes: the psychological theory of activity, the speech activity theory, the theory of the psychology of the collective, and the principles of pedagogical communication. Finally, the psychological and methodological principles and the instructional process of the activation method are considered. A seven-page bibliography is supplied. The appendixes provide guidance in setting up an intensive course in Russian, as well as a sample unit: "Let's Get Acquainted!"--Language Centre Materials No. 39. (MSE)
