The intuitively learnable ABC is here
after eight years of clockwork between scientists, artists and schools in twelve European countries.
Materials for activities from age 1 to 9 for language development, literacy, foreign language immersion and musical activities
as well as a certified further training.
Is there the need for a new literacy approach?
Brain research enables to understand, why reinforcing the measures increases the problem. Because the line between what supports and what impedes brain development runs during childhood between the concrete and the abstract world. The shape of a letter is abstract. Even if it’s a toy letter you can touch and take, it has no function like a spoon and a fork have. In order to make practical use of the new research results and to develop an ABCDirect key that corresponds to the child's brain, scientists and schools in more than 10 European countries have been consulted over the course of a decade.
What's different about ABCDirekt?
Clapping, dancing, speaking, listening, painting, drawing and learning with all the senses: an adventure journey, where adults and children uncover potential together.
The choice of words provides the receptionist of the brain, the hippocampus, with the necessary pinch of surprises that this Novelty-Detector needs to stay on the ball and not to switch to stand-by mode. Gently embedded in the soundful lyrics, also new terms are quickly remembered and complete the vocabulary.
Themes from the world of children's experiences awaken social awareness and the feeling "I have already experienced that, the is exciting, the is important for me!"
Three and four-year-olds already internalize the alphabet enthusiastically within days.
