Learning Theories and Language Learning

This post is in response to an M. A. ELT student's question:

Here is a site which discusses learning theories:


I think you already have enough information about learning theories. What you need to do now is to think of how these theories are useful for us to learn a language. (as you rightly say "theories is useful in your own learning of English"}

If you go to google.com and search for "learning theories" + "language teaching" you will get a lot of sites with useful information.

For example have a look at this page: http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient-ff&ie=UTF-8&rls=GGGL,GGGL:2006-18,GGGL:en&q=%22learning+theories%22+%2B+%22language+teaching%22

There is a PowerPoint Presentation on this page which discusses different learning theories.


If you download the PPT file and watch the Presentation you will get the gist of each learning theory.

For example you will get to know that

1. doing a language drill in the class is based on behaviouristic learning theory

2. giving a problem solving task for students is based on cognitive learning theory

3. asking the students to talk about their own likes and dislikes is based on affective learning theory.

Find some classroom activities to supplement the theoretical aspects you have discussed in your paper.

For example:

Please go to this site:

Please go to this site: http://teachingstylesonline.com/simple_activities_for_present_perfect.html

You will find some simple activities for teaching the Present Perfect Tense in class.

For each activity you can try to find out the learning theory it is based on.

You can also take a multilingual activity like the one given in this site: http://teachingstylesonline.com/sample_multilingual_activity_type_1.html

You can try to identify the learning theory that is the basis for each activity.

All the best for your assignment Megha.

Keep in touch and let me know how it develops.

Information about H. M. Patel, the Ex. Finance Minister, Ex. Chairman of Charutar Vidya Mandal, Founder of H. M. Patel Institute of English Training and Research and Sardar Patel University.

Strange disappearances at sea

Of all the strange disappearances at sea, the most bizaare is that of Mary celeste.

More than a century ago, the ship was found floating in the Atlantic ocean. The captain and the crew were all missing. What happened to them remains a mystery even to-day.

The ship was initially named Amazon. Following an accident, the ship was reconditioned and named Mary Celeste.

On November 7, 1872 the ship loaded with alcohol and wine left New York port and set sail for Genova in Italy.

It had a crew of seven in addition to the captain Benjamin Briggs, his wife and their young daughter. The whereabouts of the ship afterwards became unknown until December 4, 1872.

On December 4th, 1872, the ship Dei Gratia found Mary celeste which was floating 700 miles of the coast of Gibraltar. A rescue party from Dei Gratia boarded the ship. They found everything was o.k. including the cargo and the ship’s money box. However the ship’s paper and chronometer were missing. The last entry in the captain’s log book contained nothing unusual. There was no anticipation of any danger. Well then what happened to the crew and captain and his family. There are several conflicting versions as to what the rescue party found in the ship. There was blood in the ship and also some weapons lying about. Another version has it that they abandoned playing cards in progress, a half eaten breakfast and shaving razor with soap on brush.

About the fate of the persons on board here also several theories have been put forward.

1) The ship was attacked by pirates

2) An abandoned ship can be claimed as a booty by the finder. On this basis people have theorized that captain of Dei Gratia (which found the abandoned ship) had earlier planted some of his men as crew of Mary Celeste. At the appointed time, they revolted, killed everybody and waited for Dei Gratia to arrive and claim it as booty.

3) A scientific explanation has been offered also. The Mary Celeste was carrying large quantity of alcohol in casks . The movement of the ship would have resulted in alcohol rubbing against the surface and produced static electricity. A ship crew with a cigarette in his mouth might have opened one of the casks. The result would have been a minor explosion.

On hearing the noise, the captain and the crew might have panicked and feared that the ship might explode. They might have decided to temporarily abandon the ship. For this purpose, it is likely they untied the life boat from the ship and got into it. We can only surmise that due to some unforeseen weather conditions, the rope connecting ship to the life boat might have snapped. The result would have been that the life boat was tossed about in the sea and everyone perished.

This may satisfactory explain the abandon card game, the half finished meal on a plate and the open razor.

While we can only guess what actually happened to the captain and the crew remains a complete mystery even after 100 years.

What Are You Doing Summer 2006

Mike Mograbi of IMNewswatch writes practical down-to-earth articles. I love his principle of Win-Win policy whether it is to do with VIP Profit Zone, IMNewswatch or any other venture.

I have reprinted Mike Mograbi's article here. Read Mograbi's article and you can see for yourself what I mean to say.


This is Mike Mograbi.

I wanted to ask you a question.

What are you doing this summer? What are you doing summer 2006?

I know what I am going to be doing. I'm going to be studying internet marketing. re-studying I.M. basics. Back to basics. Copywriting basics, PPC/AdSense basics, viral marketing basics,
and so on. If you stick to basics, there is no way in the world you can go wrong and NOT make $ online.

I have many quality books, ebooks, courses (DVD) that I haven't studied yet, and doing (not doing) so would make a difference in my online success in 2007.

I'm also going to be following up on several projects I'm currently working on. I'm even going to travel to my team of developers to do that.

So where's the fun part of summer 2006? :)

This is the fun part for me. In fact, when I study internet marketing, travel to meet developers, work hard for my online success, I am 'living' my dreams in my mind/imagination.

I mean, I'm not studying internet marketing for the sake of internet marketing. I'm studying it for what it will get me. It will make my dreams come true.

By the way, I'm already making five figures a month easily every month, so it's not that I'm starting out now. And I just launched one of the most successful websites on the web; IMNewswatch.

Internet Marketing Newswatch hit #1 Alexa Movers & Shakers only 9 days after launch, going up 17,000%. I love this website, people love it and I plan on growing and enriching this site also, during summer.

Here's what I have in mind: summer 2007, I want to go to these islands with my wife and children: http://www.imnewswatch.com/boraboraisland.htm

Beautiful isn't it? :)

Yes, I could go this summer to b.b.islands. But, I'm going to make it a "reward" for making six figures per month, and with a lot of hard work, effort, dedication and perseverance, I hope to attain this goal before summer 2007.

Ok, what about you? What will your financial situation be like summer 2007?

I can answer that. Just tell me what "seeds" you're going to sow summer 2006.

Let me give you a piece of advice: Go out and have some fun in the sun, but do sow some seeds for summer 2007 too, ok?

As Yanik Silver once put it (and I still keep his email sent on Monday July 4, 2005):

"So what can you do to achieve your independence?

I'll give you a couple things to take to heart. I can't remember the author who said this but he said if you show me what a man does in his spare time I'll show you the type of man he'll become. What are doing with your spare time?

- Watching TV or reading?

- Napping or practicing your copywriting?

- Yakking to your friends or studying direct marketing?

It all comes down to the choices we make every single day. In fact, you shouldn't let one day go by without making sure you are taking at least one proactive step towards your own independence. Just because the thought of you doing what you want when you want may seem so far away - don't let that stop you from taking those baby steps each and every day. That's one of my rules and I hope you'll adopt it."

I hope my message to you will push you a step closer towards achieving your dreams, whatever they may be.

Wishing you all the best.

Mike Mograbi

How to Build a Website Without Being a Programmer

Yes, many of you have said you want to build your own website and earn money.

Many of you have no knowledge of programming.

Some of you have very little experience of using the internet.

No Problems.

I am just like one of you and I am earning well through my websites now.

I didn't join a fashion designing course to fill my wardrobe with the latest designs.

I didn't join a cookery class to heat up and serve ready to eat stuffs.

Website building can be as easy as cooking 2 minute noodles if you have the right software.

Is that possible? Really? check it out for yourself.


Many of you have also asked me, "Rangoo, what do I do with a website when I have no content to put in?".

I have not written all the articles on my websites.

There are ways of getting articles. All you do is copy and paste.

Interested? Check it out.


Want to Build Your Own Website and Earn Money?

Hey everyone!

It's finally here--the software you were waiting
for. The professional, yet easy to use website
builder that will help you create websites in
a jiffy.

If you are in a hurry, you can go directly to:

But do you want to know what makes this software
so special? I had it custom made based on the
problems I had while creating websites, and also
from the feedback that I got from my students of
web design.

Earlier, if you had to create a website, you had
to learn HTML. And that was pretty tedious! You
had to work on a text editor, and then you had to
preview in a browser to see if everything was turning
out the way you wanted and so on and so forth.

Want a sneak peek to the super software?

Next, came the mega website editors - Frontpage and
Dreamweaver. Every professional used to use it and
hey, they were popular. In fact, the most requested
tutorial at my site http://www.coursesuseek.com
is the Dreamweaver and Frontpage tutorials.

But, they still had limitations. They worked when
you had to create one page sites, but not when you
had to create a website that had 10-15 pages. Because
when you made a change in one page, you had to go
and change the menu titles and the links in all
pages! Gosh was that tedious.

So then I decided, how about I create a software
that has all the necessary features that one needs
to create a professional website -- and that does
not cost the earth!

And that's how you got:

I keep on talking about how this software creates
a navigational menu for your site and how easy it is
to add and edit pages. Why would that be important?
Because a good menu is one of the most important
things you need to get top search engine rankings!

If your pages are not linked together properly,
then the search engine crawler cannot find your
pages and it cannot index them.

Before I go rambing on, check out the software
for yourself at:

Don't forget to grab your copy now, because I
am going to send the first 50 customers some
special tutorials and tips and tricks on how
to create websites and set them up to start
making money for you.


Distance Learning and Distance Learning Online

Distance learning has become extremely appealing and widely attended because of the many educational options it offers through an educational format that caters to students who require flexibility in pursuing a degree. If you have decided that you need to jump-start your flagging career, want to change careers, or reach higher for an education that can increase your earning potential, then a distance learning online school is for you!

Anything from the traditional undergraduate and graduate degrees to certificates, diplomas and other certification is available in the wide world of distance learning. If you plan to study business, education, religion, math or any of the other traditional educational disciplines, you can find a distance learning online school offering exactly what you need. If you prefer a vocational education such as computer technology, culinary arts, mechanics or fashion design from an accredited certificate or diploma program, then you will find an abundance of options through the distance learning school format.

Some distance learning schools can be completed in as little as a few months in order to be qualified for the career you choose and some will require as much as 3 to 4 years if enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program. The options are limitless as to the profession or skill that a distance learning school may offer providing you a chance to find the dream job or satisfying career you have always wanted. With the flexible distance learning online format, a distance learning school provides you with all the instructional materials you will need to study in the comfort of your own home and around your own work schedule. Unlike traditional on-campus studies, distance learning schools are more likely to attract those that are already in jobs and have settled in particular locales with a family. The distance learning online school format usually draws more 'mature' students and some distance learning schools have a required age limit to whom they will offer their services especially among the university educational community. Personal accountability and motivation are imperative to the learner's success in a distance learning school even with all the instructional monitoring provided by the schools.

If you are interested in exploring a distance learning online school education, a wide array of choices can be found throughout the Internet with informative sites on every imaginable interest. Decide what amount of time that you can devote to studies, how much financially you can invest in a new skill or degree and what format of distance learning you prefer. Some distance learning online schools offer curriculum mostly by video instruction, others use a totally computer-based format, and still others instruct completely by mail. Many art instruction schools use the correspondence by mail format while some technical schools offer total computer-based instruction. Thoroughly investigate the distance learning online school of your choice as to its instruction format, distance learning policies, financial aid, and accreditation status. If you can imagine it, you can find it through distance learning online educational websites!

Environmental Trends In Elearning Reviewed

Twenty years ago a typical college classroom had very little technology. Maybe there were a few computers, but for the most part students turned in assignments written from a typewriter. Ten years ago technology began to seep into the college academic setting. For example, Professors started simple WebPages containing course information and perhaps links to reference resources.

In the late 1990's, however, college academia took a giant step forward in elearning by introducing courses that could be taken entirely online. The environmental trends in elearning have changed dramatically from the infrequent use of the Internet and elearning to relying on the elearning for an entire course.

This environmental trend in elearning opened up the opportunity to study at the college level to many more students. Technical colleges, for example, are home to many nontraditional older students. These students have full time jobs, families, and little free time. It is difficult to miss work to attend class during the day. Night classes are possible, but that means less time with family. That is when an online course can save the day and allow these types of students to work on their degree.

Online courses are available at many four-year and two-year colleges and universities. In the last few years, online colleges have emerged that offer an entire degree program online. These comprehensive courses of study allow a more diverse student population to have access to the education they seek.

Another environmental trend in elearning is the way classes are conducted. Classes are administered through software programs such as Blackboard and WebCT. These web-based programs allow students to login to a virtual classroom. They can access course materials such as lecture notes, assignments, and tests. They can communicate with the instructor and other classmates through email messages and a class message forum.

Professors, teachers, and instructors also have an array of options. There are calendar, email, and syllabus tools. Electronic grade books are a nice feature of elearning software programs. Electronic grade books are more than just a repository of grades. They can actually calculate final grades based on specific classroom grading criteria and policies. This is a welcome addition for many teachers that are technologically savvy. Plus students can view their grades online throughout the semester and track their progress.

As technology progresses so will the elearning environment. The academic options are far different from what they were even ten years ago. Imagine what the options will entail ten years from now.

Homeschooling — Can I Do It?

Many parents would like to homeschool their children but are afraid they don’t have the training or ability to be their children’s teacher. This is certainly understandable, because many parents never had any formal training to be a teacher. However, most parents don’t have to worry about this issue.

There is literally a supermarket of education resources available for parents to choose from to help them homeschool their children. These include low-cost Internet private schools that take most of the homeschooling burden off parents’ backs. There are also hundreds of low-cost instruction books on how to teach your child reading, math, and many other subjects. These are available in most libraries and great book stores like Barnes & Noble and Borders. There are also thousands of computer software programs that will help you teach your child reading, math, and many other subjects. Also, the Internet is a vast source of information both for you and your children. All these sources are geared towards average parents

Remember also that over a million average parents like yourself already successfully homeschool their kids. One study has shown that over half of homeschooling parents only have high-school diplomas. Also, millions of parents in this country taught their kids the basics at home for over 200 years before we ever had public schools, which first started in the 1850’s. Also, these parents did not have bookstores, Internet private schools, computer software, or all the other education resources you have available today.

Second, if you research and use the many free-market educational resources described in my book, “Public Schools, Public Menace,” it will be hard for you to fail. You can choose from a wide variety of quality Internet private schools, learn-to-read (and math) books and computer learning software, and home-schooling resources to teach your children. Also, Internet education sites are always there, always ready to coach your child, twenty-four hours a day.

These education alternatives are relatively inexpensive, yet offer high-quality instruction. Your job as a parent is to commit some time and energy to find the right education resources for your children, then help and encourage them to learn.

Also, like most kids, your children want to learn when they study subjects that interest them. When learning becomes fun, your kids can become your best home-schooling partner and help you succeed. Your kids may enjoy home-schooling so much that you may soon have to drag them away from their books or the computer for lunch. But isn’t that great? Wouldn’t you like to see your kids totally engrossed with their studies, improving their reading skills rapidly, and finding joy in learning?

Here’s the beauty of homeschooling — if one math or reading book, software program, or Internet school doesn’t excite your children or provide satisfactory results, there are many more to choose from. If you find home-schooling difficult in the beginning, use all the resources described in “Public Schools, Public Menace” to find books, Internet schools and tutors, teaching materials, home-schooling organizations, and other home-schooling parents you can network with. Almost a million parents just like you already teach their children at home.

While no one can guarantee you success, like anything else in life, if you keep trying, you will probably succeed in giving your kids a great education at home. If you say to yourself, “I will make this work, for my child’s sake,” you’ll be surprised at what you can accomplish. Tell yourself what Gene Kranz, actor Ed Harris’s character in the movie Apollo 13, said to his Houston crew about rescuing the astronauts in trouble: “Failure is not an option.” If you say this and mean it, you’re halfway to success for yourself and your child.

Dieting While Partying!

It's really difficult for a person to socialise if he is on a Diet. Totally ignoring parties and invitation is definitely not a solution.You have to strike a balance between your diet and social parties which, trust me, isn't easy at all. But we can always take necesaary precautions so as to avoid overeating.

Here is some valuable tips to keep everyone happy.

a) Try eating light snacks aroung 6 PM before leaving for the party. The problem with late night parties is that dinner isnt served before 11 and by that time rats are running in everyones stomach , so people end up eating a lot which they shouldnt.

b) At dinner, try eating vegetables only along with some fat free yogurt. If you cant resist non-veg, go in for grilled chicken.

c) Caution : Do not drink soups at parties as they have cornflour which is by any means not good for people who are on diet.

d) Avoid unhealthy food like white bread, deep fried foods and oily vegetables.

e) Choose salads with combination of chicken and and greens with marinated vegetables. Chinese greens are great choice anyday.

f) Eat your food slowly and cherish it to the fullest.

Few more veryday Diet Tips for everyone:

a) If you prefer non-vegetarian food, eat more fish and lesser red meat. Infact one should avoid Red Meat. It not only increase Cholestrol but also makes you more susceptible to heart attack and other heart related diseases.

b) Your Diet should have less sodium and more fibre . Fibre improves your digestion and keeps your stomach in good shape.

c) People with cholestrol problem should not eat york at all.Keep them for kids.

d) Get into the habbit of eating fruits as desserts instead of high calorie ice creams and puddings.

What do you think about Baby Shoes?

Should babies wear shoes? There are many countries where babies don't wear shoes because the people think that it will not be good for the babies feet.

There are other countries where babies start wearing shoes even before they start walking and the society takes pride in the beautiful small feet.

How would this baby elephant feel when you put on shoes on all the four legs? Especially since it has to learn walking in the forests, wouldn't it feel better with soft, spongy shoes?

I think it might enjoy glowing, squeaky baby shoes. What do you say?

Find some information about Baby Shoes and decide when your baby should start wearing shoes.

Have you heard about teaching carpets?

Do you know there are carpets which can teach your children letters, numbers, shape and pattern recognition?

There are carpets which are good for teaching color recognition, visual discrimination, phonics rules, math facts and come with a teacher's manual.

Many carpets now come with stain protectors.

Dhruti has a Question on English in India

Dhruti Vaghela has sent this question:

Dear Madam,

At present I am serving as a visitor lecturer at Halol Arts College, Gujarat University. I have to have a Paper-reading on ‘Importance of English as an International Language’. For this purpose I am in need of information regarding ‘The role of English language in India’. I searched a lot to get information from books and Websites but the result is zero. So, now you are the only person who can help me in this matter.

Dhruti please check out this link for points which you can expand.

English in India

At the end of the write-up there are links which you can explore for further information. The idea, Dhruti, is not to give you the whole presentation but to help you learn how to search for and gather information.

You have said you did not get any information on this topic. When I did a Google Search for "The role of English in India", I got about 116 results. This is limited because I had used the quotes and very few reports would have used these words, in this order and in this manner. When I searched for "English in India", within quotes, I got 41, 400 links. Without quotes, just the words, English in India, resulted in 81,000,000 sites. But the first few results had most of the information I have included in the write-up.

When you do a Google Search, if you look at the websites listed and read a couple of sentences given below the link, you can quickly identify if that site has the information you need. For example, have a look at this link:
English in India
english has official status of assistant language in india.The british introduced
english in india for official purposes. many indians speak and write ...
adaniel.tripod.com/Languages3.htm - 9k - Cached - Similar pages

The sentences below the link makes it clear, this is related to what you are looking for. If you look at the description the words English and India are bold, they are highlighted.

By putting the words in quotation you can limit your search and avoid those sites where the words are not used in the same order. Whenever you try a search and you are not able to get the desired result for a string of words in quotations, remove the quotation marks and try the search again. Or think of other words which may be related to the information you seek and try a search with those words.

If you have more questions or comments, click on comments here and post them. All the best for your presentation.

I Want to Sell an Antique Diamond Ring

I got a call from ebay yesterday. I have registered at ebay but I have still not learnt how to sell things there.

Yesterday I got a call and a lady with a soft voice told me she could give me a 15 minute training online if I want to sell something in ebay. I said ok I will be online for 15 minutes tomorrow.

She said get a photo of what you want to sell and I will call you tomorrow. I first thought I wanted to sell some electronic goods. Later I felt why not sell my diamond ring and get some money for the home mortgage.

So I have taken a photo of the diamond ring, my daughter helped me do it. I will learn how to sell and check out if I can use ebay for future buyings and sellings.

The diamond ring I have is ages old, it is very precious, has a beautiful design and is 'Anamol' (that which cannot be valued in terms of money). I have read a lot about antiques.

Have you checked this site? If you are interested in antiques you should.


And if you are buying an antique ring for your fiance' do not forget to send her some flowers. In the same site you will find some online florists.
