What is Suggestopedia?Suggestopedia is a language learningmethod which concerns more about thephysical environment in which learnerstake place.The more comfortable and relax studentis the more effective language learning is.( Introduced by Georgi Lozanov )
Typical Techniques ( Larsen- Freeman.1986.”Techniques and Principles in Language Teaching”. p84-86.)a. Classroom set-up The classroom has to be designed not like a ‘normal’ classroom, rather it should be as comfort as possible for the students.b. Peripheral learning Ss can absorb the information ‘effortlessly’ as it is received as a part of the environment rather than as a material ‘to be attended to’.
c. Positive Suggestion Teacher appeal to students’ consciousness and subconscious to orchestrate the ‘suggestive’ factors involved in learning.d. Visualization Ss are asked to close their eyes and visualize scenes and events to help them relax and encourage their creativity.e. Choose a new identity Ss select a target language name and/or occupation that places them inside the language they are learning.
f. Role-play Ss pretend temporarily that they are someone else and perform their role using target language.g. First concert T does a slow, dramatic reading of the dialog synchronized in intonation with classical music.h. Second concert Ss put aside their scripts and T reads at normal speed according to the content with no accompanying of Baroque music.
i. Primary activation Ss ‘playfully’ reread the target language out loud.j. Secondary activation Ss engage in various activities designed to help Ss learn the material and use it more spontaneously. The activities include singing, dramatizations, and games.
Suggestopedia is a language learning method whichfocuses on emotional factor of students. It believes that the students will success on learning if they feel encouraged and relaxed in learning process. However, the effectiveness of this method is still questionable. But there are still some basic principles that can be applied such as the use of music , visualization, etc.
