All our methods of teaching have been derived from the insights that we have generated through lively interactions with children, observations and simple experiments. We would all agree that children learn by feeling things, throwing them, banging them, observing them, by asking questions, by listening to others, by experimenting, by narrating, etc. While doing all this, they are constantly connecting to their previous experiences and building on it. Thus, the education processes in our schools are geared towards providing opportunities to children where they learn by connecting to their previous knowledge and achieve understanding in the desired domain (at least we advocate it through our curriculum documents!).

Note: Published twice a year in January and July, Language and Language Teaching (LLT) reaches out to language teachers, researchers and teacher educators on issues and practices relevant to language teaching. The primary focus of the publication is language pedagogy in elementary schools. LLT proposes to establish a dialogue between theory and practice so that practice contributes to theory as much as theory informs practice. The purpose is to make new ideas and insights from research on language and its pedagogy accessible to practitioners while at the same time inform theorists about the constraints of implementation of new ideas.
