Anyone have first hand experience with Paderborn Method (which I understand if teaching Esperanto in preparation for world language study)? Am interested in putting together 6-8 week curriculum for middle school age children at an international school. Thanks.

Sorry I can't help you with your question, but I thought this might interest you: http://www.springboard2languages.org/ It sounds like they'd be happy to chat to you, and you may well find they know something about Paderborn in addition to their own program.

Hi there.

I taught the Springboard to Languages programme in the UK for a number of years, and did a TEDx talk about it: http://on.ted.com/Morley

In such a short time, I'd suggest not spending a great deal of time on acquiring vocabulary, but spending more time on the mechanics of the language, e.g. generative word formation, tense formation, possibly even complex tense formation if you can. If someone can get a feeling for why "estis manĝanta" = "was eating", while "estas manĝinta" = "has eaten", they'll always have a frame of reference for working out the tenses of new languages. (That may be a tall order in 8 weeks, but good luck with it!)

Thanks for this - totally agree on deemphasizing vocab and going for structure. Nice. Thanks for the TEDx link.

I will put your video as a topic. And I must say that I enjoy reading the subtitles in Esperanto. Nice talk.
