Research Touts the Effects of Language Immersion
Ivrit B’Ivrit (literally "Hebrew in Hebrew“) is a method of teaching Hebrew using principles of language immersion. This is the building block upon which “Harmony of Hebrew” was created.
Studies have shown that the brain waves of students who learn a language through immersion are similar to those of native speakers of that language. Furthermore, the neural processing of teachers who trained with the language immersion method also developed native-like qualities.
Research indicates that it takes 480 hours to reach basic fluency (in group 1 languages), If we are able to put in 5 hours a day to learn a language, then basic fluency in the easy languages should take 96 days.
Language immersion is effective because it is the way you learn your own language. Research suggests immersion learning may be more effective than only learning with more traditional classroom methods because of how our brains process grammar.
