Luqman’s Dyslexia Weblog: Studying is unnatural


Here’s a
put up on LinkedIn by Jennifer Knopf from Orlando that included the above picture.

Jennifer is the President
and Founding Director @ REED Charitable Basis

Her put up was
reposted by 13 LinkedIn members. I commented on one of many reposts and had a
dialogue/debate with somebody. A day later all our (hers, one other member and
mine) feedback has disappeared. Why members do that is past me.

Here’s what
Jennifer Knopf stated in her unique put up.

That is so
vital to know. Most of us assume that studying ought to come naturally
if uncovered to it at school and at dwelling. Science has confirmed that is NOT true. The
largest mistake we might ever make is letting beliefs and assumptions drive
selections on how we train youngsters. We have to let science and reality drive

My remark:

Jennifer Knopf who’s letting her beliefs and assumptions drive selections on
tips on how to train youngsters.

She, like
Pamela Snow of La Trobe College copy-paste what has been stated/written by
somebody. They are saying that studying to talk is pure however not studying to learn.
They are saying that it is because studying is simply about 6,000 years outdated.

In a Weblog
Put up, Pamela Snow wrote the next:

Spoken language is a college people have developed over
tens of millions of years of evolution, such that the human mind devotes important
quantities of its actual property to producing and understanding language.

Studying and writing, however, have solely existed for
5-6000 years – a mere blink in evolutionary phrases.

Pamela Snow, is belittling the facility of the mind. She is among the many ladies who blocked me on Twitter for asking her questions that she couldn’t reply. I questioned her on the identical matter within the clip above again in 2018. She didn’t reply. LINK

If studying
to talk is pure, then studying to learn can be pure.

After we
converse to a baby in any language the kid slowly learns to talk. If
we converse in Tamil, the kid will begin talking in Tamil and inside a couple of
years will be capable of converse primary Tamil. Nonetheless, the kid is not going to converse a
phrase of English or another language. It’s because the kid will not be uncovered to English or another languages.

As soon as a baby
is aware of his alphabet, we are able to sit him beside us and skim easy books in Malay to
him and ask him to learn after us sentence by sentence and in about 3 months of
half an hour of studying the kid will be capable of learn something in Malay. The
solely rationalization that could be wanted is to let the kid know that the letter E
in Malay represents 2 sounds.

Pamela Snow, Stanislas Dehaene and Jennifer Knopf to say that studying will not be
pure? Are any of them saying that Malay will not be a language?

I look ahead to Jennifer Knopf and any of these LinkedIn members who reposted the put up by Jennifer to remark and hope to have a dialogue/debate on this matter in order that others might profit from our dialogue.
