"

languages ​​in one group certainly interference occurs, at which the rules and regulations of one language unnoticed influence on the second target language.Excluding this factor, you can completely change the brain and minimize the like

Recording starts only the first words in the second year, the study of grammar - 3 year training."Why so long?" Often are asking parents, giving his crumbs into the hands of the teacher.The fact is that the specificity of age does not allow to study grammar before, because the baby is not formed grammatical concepts mother tongue.

Each lesson is introduced at least 30 new words.A lot of?Yes, it's a lot, but effective.Of all the lexical array group accounts for 8-12 words of nouns, adjectives - 5-8, verbs - 4-6 numerals - 2-3 and not more than two types of phrases.
