LAUGHING AND LEARNING
Scientific research shows that laughing continuously, for a period of time, strengthens your immune system, producing endorphins and helping to fight off diseases. In addition, it reduces stress and gets the blood circulating around the body, increasing your capacity to learn.
Humour is also a great stimulus for memory, as well as helping to keep your students attention and concentration. When students try to record the information they have studied, remembering the funny moments often takes little effort. This humour then linked to a particular language structure or activity acts as an aid to the students memory.
Contrary to popular belief, learning is not best done sitting down for hours on end and listening passively to a teacher mumbling on, but by actively participating in the learning process.
Laughing and learning go hand in hand. If you are doing something you enjoy, whatever it may be, you do it with more energy and enthusiasm and it becomes more beneficial.
In the group sessions, I use specific activities to create harmony and ensure a good, strong rapport among members. I personally, participate in some of the activities and see my role as that of a conductor in an orchestra. The participants are learning more than just a few English expressions. They are learning how to get on with people, work together in a team, how to listen to others in a receptive and not a passive way, how to express themselves confidently and how to eliminate the negative vibes which are often present in other group courses.
