Eine Sprache lernt man nicht nur, sondern man lebt sie. Benny Lewis ist Autodidakt und hat im Laufe der Zeit herausgefunden, worum es tatsächlich beim Lernen einer Sprache geht. In diesem Buch erklärt er, was es wirklich braucht, damit man jede Sprache in kürzester Zeit erlernt. Unerlässlich ist eine enorm hohe Motivation für das Erlernen der Sprache, und man muss sich trauen, die Sprache auch zu sprechen. Sei es durch eine persönliche Reise in das entsprechende Land, übers Internet oder durch einen Tandempartner. Darüber hinaus sollte man möglichst alles in der Fremdsprache tun, was Praxis bringt: Fernsehen schauen, Musik hören und lesen. Mit diesem Buch gibt der Autor Tipps für Eselsbrücken, um Vokabeln und die Grammatik einfacher zu erlernen, und er hilft dabei, die Herangehensweise an das Lernen so zu optimieren, dass es zu einem Kinderspiel wird. Sein Erfolg spiegelt sich im weltweit größten Sprachlernblog wider, mit dem er bereits Millionen Menschen dabei geholfen hat, eine neue Sprache zu erlernen.

Now adopted by over 40 states, the Common Core State Standards provide a clear and consistent framework for public school systems as they develop student learning goals that define the path to readiness for college, careers, and informed citizenship. While each state is developing its own procedures for adoption of the Standards, individual teachers will continue to hold the ultimate responsibility for devising lesson plans and tailoring instruction to meet these benchmarks. Making Language Matter will help prospective and practicing teachers develop lessons to meet the benchmarks enumerated in the Standards for the English Language Arts categories: language, speaking and listening, writing, and reading. A timely text for literacy education courses, it explores language topics within these categories and suggests pedagogical approaches and activities for use in 9-12 language arts classrooms. Using a linguistics approach to unify the study of all the language arts, it engages readers in learning how to help students make purposeful language choices essential for both academic and workplace success.
