NLP For Teachers
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is an approach to language teaching which is claimed to help achieve excellence in learner performance.
Neuro-linguistic programming or NLP has been seen recently as one of the resources to enhance effectiveness of language instruction. It has been well established in the framework of humanistic psychology since 1971. NLP claims to help achieve excellence of performance in language teaching and learning, improve classroom communication, optimize learner attitudes and motivation, raise self-esteem, facilitate personal growth in students, and even change their attitude to life.
NLP techniques such as establishing a rapport with students, calibrating, keeping pace with, and leading the learner, re-framing classroom procedures, as well as anchoring success, were described as enabling the learners, generating more chances, and helping with programming success. Excessive focus on eliciting output, the continuous filtering of correct and incorrect knowledge, and the modelling of learner strategies in the top-down way were found to be associated with less teacher–learner congruence, and fewer chances for successful teacher–learner interaction.
