PART 5 CHAPTER 2 “A good way to learn a new language”.
I think the content-based approach is a good way to learn the Arabic language. According to Jensen, the human brain needs to solve challenging problem. With the content based approach, students learn a language by reading the article in a small group. After that, they need to do exercises related to the article. Lastly, they need to discuss the article by using the target language awkward in a group. Sometime, they had misunderstanding about the article after they read, but is not a problem. The goal is to help the students in reading, writing, communicate with group members and learn how to take notes efficiently about the article that they had read.
