What is a condition-oriented language learning theory?

 

Definition
 

Condition-oriented language learning theories emphasize the human and physical context in which language learning takes place.

Examples
 

Charles Curran's Counseling- learning theory focuses primarily on the conditions necessary for learning, as does the theory behind Gattegno's Silent Way. (both described in Stevick,1980 and Stevick, 1990)
