This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
In 1960, issues of language acquisition were addressed. Paul Broca, a French neurologist and Karl Wernicke, a German neurologist, developed theories of brain lateralization. They proved that there are major areas in the left hemisphere of the brain responsible for language. Humans have a natural foundation to acquire language, a genetically determined capacity. In 1969 there was a critical period in the assumption that there is a biologically determined time in which humans are able to acquire language more easily. Researchers determined that after the age of 12 the critical time for acquiring language ends, while others believe it is at the much younger age of 5. Evidence in neurological research that as the human brain matures, certain functions are assigned or lateralized to the left hemisphere of the brain, such as logical, intellectual and analytical functions. Language function appears to be largely controlled in the left hemisphere as well. Questions for second language researchers have been centered on when lateralization occurs and how the process affects language acquisition. During the time the child is neurologically assigning functions to one side of the brain or the other, it has been found that children up to the age of puberty
