The Declarative Method: Informed by Research

The Declarative Method: Informed by Research

The long-held assumption about learning a second language is that grammar is more important than vocabulary. Second language instruction has traditionally focused on teaching grammatical knowledge: sentence construction, verb conjugations, singular and plural forms, noun-adjective agreements, verb tenses, etc.

Transparent Language emphasizes a "declarative first" approach to language learning. Our approach, the Declarative Method, is based on research about how the brain functions, and how best to take advantage of that when learning a new language.

In this white paper, we will dive into the best strategy for any language learner to quickly memorize a large number of frequently-used words, stock phrases, and common expressions – all backed by research.
