A quiet revolution is gathering momentum in the way we learn. In the last decade or so psychologists
have begun to discover more of how the brain really works and how facts can be rapidly and deeply fixed
in the memory. It's on these discoveries that Accelerated Learning is based.
Historically, most teaching has been undertaken by those who were the best at the subject - the person
who was "best at French", became the French teacher. But that person was not necessarily the most
skilled at the principles of teaching. You employ an architect to design your house, because his speciality
is the principle of construction but a builder to actually carry out the plans, because he is adept at the
In a similar way psychologists have begun to define the principles behind learning, and these findings
have led to a quite different approach to learning.
Conventional teaching has assumed that learning should involve determined concentration and frequent
repetition. We now know that this style of learning is not efficient, because it causes unnecessary tension
and it tends to involve just one half of the brain.
Accelerated Learning, in contrast, teaches y
