I spoke with A at work recently about how it would be to simply use our creativity to simply teach—to just do and develop what works best. Instead, within an educational institution there’re so many requirements to meet and boxes to fill. We agreed that any great innovative leap was unlikely to a) happen, and b) survive. Even in Science, the eureka moment happens outside its sphere of influence. Only afterwards is it worked toward to join-the-dots.
And that all may mean that my new approach to language acquisition will need to establish its roots in its own hothouse.
