The GPA method divides language learning into 6 phases. In the first phase, the student (“growing participator”) and instructor (“nurturer”) interact with various objects and verbs, stimulating instant communication and enabling the student to develop familiarity with hundreds of new words. The later phases see a shift towards more abstract elements, communicating through pictures, drawings and stories.
HERE AND NOW
Relearn the physical world around you, as though through the eyes of a child. Your instructor will help you collect the most necessary vocabulary through an interactive approach of seeing and doing; using toys, actions and pictures. You will learn to understand around 1200 words and several grammar structures. Students slowly learn to speak in the sessions and develop an understanding of complex speech in the present tense, alongside various standard expressions.
Further enhance your ability to talk and understand, learning to construct simple stories through the use of pictures. The focus continues to be on the here and now, and another 1200 words are added to your vocabulary.
Begin to experience the world through an interactive introduction to local situations. We start to listen to classic stories like Little Red Riding Hood, as well as local stories like Juha. Students and their instructors also engage in ‘shared experiences,’ where students are introduced to daily life in Jordan through outside excursions, such as a trip to the supermarket. Students are also shown wordless cartoons and discuss them with their instructors.
DEEP LIFE SHARING
Encounter deep events in the lives of your instructors. Students develop their conversational ability alongside an enhanced capacity to narrate with higher levels of articulation. Students and instructors engage in life interviews and conversations discussing local social situations, sharing views and experiences and forming a deeper level of friendship.
NATIVE TO NATIVE DISCOURSE
Develop your ability to understand local speech, listening to native-to-native conversation and learning about such content with your instructor. You will learn to converse in Arabic on a local level, listening to radio and Arabic dialogue so to enhance your ability to sound like a native speaker.
SELF SUSTAINING GROWTH IN COMMUNITY
You now understand most of what you hear around you. Continue to build your vocabulary and develop your language, as you immerse yourself in the local community and engage with the people around you.
