Georgi Lozanov (Bulgarian: Георги Лозанов) known as 'the father of accelerated learning', was a Bulgarian scientist, neurologist, psychiatrist, psychologist and. THE LOZANOV METHOD/ACCELERATED LEARNING AND TOTAL IMMERSION To Alison Miller, a Lozanov trained Master Teacher for her.

Only freedom of personality, inner freedom. The only cause were the feelings and ideas of the people who deal with this term. The task of desuggestopedia is to help students to eliminate negative feelings.

They do not have to be afraid of answering questions or being unsuccessful. Moreover, they should feel free in the whole learning process. I agree with the opinion of this method that the reduction of mental barriers causes a strengthened self-confidence and prevents students from thinking about the fear of failure and this leads to a better attitude for learning. This is one of the most important principles of the Desuggestopedia method. It can be seen in the whole structure of the method and the attitude of the teacher.

The result was that students not only had fun learning, but that they also absorbed subject matter at greatly increased rates.

In fact, the results were phenomenal. Suggestopedia Comes to North America Georgi Lozanov's remarkable success with the teaching of foreign languages soon drew international attention.

In Dr. Donald Schuster and Dr. As a result, the movement in the United States became known as either Accelerative or Accelerated Learning.

Suggestology and outlines of suggestopedy

The organization experienced great success as it began teaching educators how to apply suggestion, relaxation and music to the learning process. It also readily absorbed new knowledge from cognitive scientists and pioneering educators.

The Principles Expand As Dr.

Lozanov was developing his methodology in Bulgaria, cognitive scientists and pioneering educators in America were also making great strides in understanding how the brain learns. Antonio Damasio demonstrated how critical emotions are to learning, and University of California linguist John Grinder, in conjunction with psychology student Richard Bandler, began laying the foundation for Neuro-Linguistic Programming NLP.

As a result, the Accelerated Learning movement in the United States embraced these new learnings and incorporated them into their best practices in teaching, training and development.

In several years of research Lozanov worked on the question in how far the memory capacity of the human brain could be enlarged by information which is received unconsciously.

In his research he found out that it was possible to increase the output of the learning process by using suggestive methods[5]. The nowadays known version of Suggestopedia is the result of several tests with different combinations of methods and learning processes.

The basic principles which have to be fulfilled when starting a successful suggestopedic learning unit are:[6] - a relaxed learning atmosphere, - exploitation of the interplay of conscious and unconscious perception, - construction of a positive and self-conscious attitude towards the process. As the teacher can transfer positive suggestions towards his pupils, the last point of this list results in an increase of the learning output. All these principles are related to the teacher, his attitude and relationship towards his pupils and the methods used in the process of teaching.

However, there are as well other principles which do not depend on the individual teacher. One of these principles is the enlargement of the amount the pupils learn. An example which can demonstrate this principle is the following. The aim of an intensive language course about lessons in a month might be to make the pupils learn lexical units.

Already at the very beginning of the course they are confronted with a large amount of unknown words and structures at about unknown lexical units. The number of unknown units per lesson rises during the course in the last lesson the pupils can learn up to new units.

As every school lessen should be divided into these phases.

This principle does not seem to be new at first sight. However it is the specific succession of the different phases that is important in the suggestopedic approach. As this principle is very important it will be discussed in the following paragraph in more detail.

Stages of the Suggestopedic Approach A suggestopedic lesson follows, as mentioned above, a specific principle and has specific scheme, as a result of which it is divided into different phases. The total number of the phases amounts to four.

Desuggestopedia - The Reduction of Psychological Barriers

The reception of the language takes place in three presentation phases[8]. The presentation phases are called decoding, active and passive concert.

Another phase, which succeeds the presentation phases, is the so called phase of activation.

The contents of the different phases should be explained in this chapter. Very often the suggestopedic lessons are started with some kind of meditation to create a natural and relaxed learning atmosphere.


This relaxation period is followed by the introduction phase which is as well called the decoding phase. During this phase the teacher explains his pupils what will be the topic of the lesson, so that the students know what to expect of the lesson. This is very unusual for pupils, as teachers in school very often do not tell what the aim of the lesson is.

However it is an important change to treat the pupils as thinking and acting beings who should know what they can expect. Furthermore in this phase it should be made clear, that every pupil understands the topic of the lesson so that everybody is able to contribute to the topic and to benefit from the lesson.Normal hearing ability was confirmed for all subjects using standard audiometry.

Language learning especially learning a second language, L2 has been shown to benefit from music listening during learning or when the learning material has been transformed into sung melodies [ 4 ]. Change should not only be pretended or take only place at the surface but also on the basis of the assumptions concerning learning[1].

Donald Schuster and Dr. It might be possible that background music exerts its negative or positive influence at different stages of learning. In some way this finding supports the wealth of studies supporting the view that background music mostly acts as a distraction to the primary tasks [ 10 , 11 ].
