Welcome to the Natural Approach Web Site!
The Natural Approach (NA) is a method of foreign language
teaching which aims to apply the principles of natural
language acquisition into classroom context. The language
acquisition theory underlying NA suggests that we acquire any
new language in an amazingly simple way: by "understanding
messages" in the target language. So one need not to imitate
all aspects of natural setting of language acquisition, but to
provide crucial ingredient of naturalistic acquisition:
comprehensible input (CI). Provided that learners are exposed
to ample amount of CI, they can acquire a new language not
only in the artificial context of classroom but even on Mars.
