Actually immersion language teaching is not new to the world,but was new to me.
I came up with an idea of creating an immersion teaching center in NC several weeks ago and time flies and i finally scrapped my initial plan.
And then i came across an institution called "RISE Immersion Subject English Training Center" in Hengmao international mansion in downtown NC,I was totally immersed in the story.
What at bottom is immersion teaching?While the superficial understanding of the difference of the immersion teaching between the traditional language teaching methodology is that instead that the later concentrates students attention on the target language itself,the former put their target language as their instruction language officially.Every course,including maths/art/society/science/history or sth is taught in their target language.So that student would "immerse in"the language and would invariably rise up their language level and at the same time gain all sorts of knowledges and will surely catch up with and overperform their monolingual peers.
Okay,that sounds perfectly good,but what's deeper in it is a life style.Not only does immersion teaching bring us language learning methodology or grasp on it,it is actually a life style preaching.Instead of letting students bluffing that they "know" what a word means or how should they properly translate a sentence,immersion teaching tell them that a language is a language as a "tool" which is dedicated to usage and daily communication.Only in this way can we let those student from toddlers to adults who have the passion for bettering their language level better their language level eventually.And why?I think the reason is so simple that I don't really have to explain.Because what makes people learn in a  fastest pace is that the target knowledge has been gradually involved in learner's own lives.Evidences are clear.Why would NC people mostly can speak a very fluent NC dialect?Why would an nanny could cook a very delicious delicacy?Why would people walk on two legs,not four?Why?Cuz all of those knowledges are on of their life styles and they would play with it and sleep with it and eat with it.
And the market on it?Haha,it just makes me drooling.^^
