Child’s Play - english learners

Why is it that everyone tries to teach English to adults with books filled with grammar rules and endless vocabulary?

With all of the research, one piece of information stood out from all the others: children learn to speak any language without textbooks, vocabulary lists, or grammar rules. They all learn by conversation and very specific methods.

Children have always been the best English learners

When taught correctly, English grammar is easy. But the correct way is not by studying grammar books. Grammar can be easy and effortless but you must learn like children do.

“If you want to become like a native speaker,
you don’t need to learn when you are a child.
You need to use the same methods as a child.”
Dr. J. Marvin Brown
