From frustration to satisfaction : using NLP to improve self-expression
Winch, Stacey (2005) From frustration to satisfaction : using NLP to improve self-expression. In EA Education Conference, English Australia, Mercure Hotel, Brisbane, QLD.
How often do students tell us they are frustrated at being unable to express themselves, and more specifically, their true, deep and complex thoughts? We reassure them that language learning takes time, and that, with concerted effort, they will learn English. And mostly they do, but being able to fulfil various forms of academic assessment does not necessarily mean that non-native speakers can express, to their complete satisfaction, the depth and subtleties of their true thoughts and feelings such as is possible in their own language.
Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is making an impact on English language teaching, and may just offer one solution to this problem. By drawing upon the notion of preferred representational systems, this paper suggests that expressing oneself with satisfaction may be as simple as understanding how one processes and stores information.
