Tadoku.org に Kaufmannさんと酒井先生の対話がのっていました。
(I'm a frequent reader of Tadokul.org site. The owner of site is Prof. Sakai and he's an advocate of a new approach of language learning called Tadoku in Japan.
Today's blog topic was about a discussion between Mr. Kaufmann and Mr. Sakai.)
Discussion: a welcome change to English learning in Japan
(I'm quite pleased to see Tadoku has started to be known to the wider world by now, but...)
(I'd been following Mr. Kufmann's site for some time once.
Then, I don't know why Mr. Sakai thought there was something to do with their approaches.
I think their approaches toward acquiring languages are quite different, almost opposite.)
(In my opinion,)
Tadoku の真価がわかるのは、”learner であることやめた時”
(Tadoku, in a way, tells you to "relax and stop being an intensive learner, and you'll come to grab the misty of language acquisition.)
でも、Kaufmannさんが提唱しているは、”よき ｌearner たれ！”みたいな・・・
(On the other hand, my understanding of Mr. Kaufmann's approach is that "Always strive to be a good learner.)
((I'm not saying learning is no good, but I believe learning should come naturally and eventually along with your motivation, interests and needs. When you need to encourage yourself consciously to be a good learner, then you are not learning at its best.)
