Suggestopaedic teaching methods (in foreign languages and other school disciplines) are completely different from all other methods of teaching. After continuous research twenty UNESCO experts from different countries came to the following conclusions: (Published in the USA: The Journal of the Society for Accelerative Learning and Teaching, volume 3, issue 3, Fall, 1978, p.211)
“1. There is consensus that Suggestopedia is a generally superior teaching method for many subjects and for many types of students, compared with traditional methods.………………………………
2. Suggestopaedic teacher training should be started as soon as possible.
We should never ever forget that in this world of incredibly rapid implementation of innovations in all spheres of science we should not keep to the level of the pseudo morality of past epochs but the morality should make a decisive step forward unless we want to tragically devastate our children and ourselves.
The best way to liquidate something very good is not to reject it, but – to accept it and, notqualified, to imitate it.
We wouldn’t advise you to try any of the methods described here without consulting atrainer certified by Dr.G. Lozanov. Many things cannot be described on paper. Theyhave to be seen and experienced, for example, the intonation of the voice of the teacherall through the whole process of teaching not only during the concert session, or how theteaching process should oscillate, or how to use peripheral perceptions which areextremely important for acquisition etc. You should require a signed and stampedcertificate from the trainer.
