Methodology : The Neurolinguistic Approach (NLA)

L’Approche Neurolinguistique (ANL)

A must for all second or foreign language teachers!

Indispensable reading and reference work for all practitioners of the Neurolinguistic Approach (NLA), this book by Claude Germain, co-founder of the NLA, answers most of the questions that FSL / FLE teachers are asking about this approach.

The Neurolinguistic Approach(NLA), known in Canada as Intensive French, celebrates its 20th anniversary. In order to mark this special event, Dr Claude Germain, author of NLA with Dr Joan Netten, publishes a popular scientific work in which he presents the founding principles of a new paradigm, which already has an important impact on second language education. It is geared towards actual and future second or foreign language teachers, and specialists in second language education. The book is written in a FAQ format in order to answer the most frequently asked questions in NLA teacher training sessions.

Already adopted in several countries in Asia, Europe and America, the ANL, thanks to its foundations in cognitive neurosciences, constitutes a major contribution to the evolution of language learning / teaching.
