The Secrecy Underlying Young Language Learners- Learning

Authors: Nima Shakouri Masouleh, Razieh Bahraminezhad Jooneghani


The study investigated the educational implications that can be derived from the work of a variety of celebrated figures such as Piaget, Vygotsky, and Bruner that will be helpful in the field of language learning. However, the writer believed these views were previously expressed not full–fledged by Comenius who has been described by Howatt (1984) as a genius–the one that the history of language teaching can claim. And we owe to him more than anyone.
