A KINAESTHETIC APPROACH TO TEACH VERB TENSES
María Marta Suárez has developed a system of movements to facilitate her students the understanding and use of the whole verb tense system of English in a short time. She has been inspired by the belief that the understanding of wholes rather than the parts helps to accelerate learning. María Marta and her team have tested this multisensory approach with success with pre-adolescents, adolescents and adults. In this synchronic on-line session that will be contacted via zoom, you will explore this approach that can help you remove the cannot-learn-verb tense syndrome many students have.
