Why are numbers in the middle of a language course and not the beginning?
Why are numbers in the middle of a language course and not the beginning? It just seems like that numbers would be one of the first things to learn.
Learning the numbers does not help you learn how the language your using works.The numbers are rote memorization that some find boring. That being said very few things in a language you can memorize come up more often in real life than numbers.Point being I think for speed in learning the language the current set up is best. If some one wishes to learn the numbers separate for use in real world function there are plenty of sources... perhaps we could have a open numbers lesson box?
