The Right Way to Flip Your Language Learning Classroom

Studies have shown that when it comes to learning foreign languages, combining technology and human instruction is more powerful than either computer learning or human instruction alone. This approach is at the core of Declaratively Accelerated Blended Learning (DABL).

In this follow-up to our DABL overview white paper, we will show you how to apply the DABL flipped classroom method to language instruction. Three detailed sample lesson plans are included to help get you started. We also include details on how to execute DABL in our own Transparent Language Online programs, but the core principles are easily applied to whatever curriculum you choose.

Studies have shown that when it comes to learning foreign languages, combining technology and human instruction is more powerful than either computer learning or human instruction alone. This approach is at the core of Declaratively Accelerated Blended Learning (DABL). In this white paper, we explain how educators can best combine technology and classroom time for the strongest possible learning outcome, including a case study where DABL has been successfully applied with significant positive results.

Create a Communicative Classroom

But it takes time and creativity to create a successful communicative classroom. This method requires spontaneity and a variety of engaging activities and exercises. In this eBook, we'll walk you through some of our favorite communicative activities for reading, writing, listening, and speaking, tested and perfected by a 20-year language teaching veteran!
