‘World Language’ is a method developed by Laura Groebbé (2007) to help children and teenagers to map their learning and thinking experience in a constructive way.
World language is based on the theory developed by Robert Sternberg (1996) how to be ‘successful intelligent’: create a solid balance between intellectual, creative and practical intelligence. World Language also taps into Dabrowski’s Theory of Positive Disintegration (1970).
Multi Applicable MethodWorld Language is an internal and external communication method that is multi applicable, it can be used in the classroom, in smaller groups, within families and in coaching.
Constructive CommunicationWorld Language makes children aware when they use their intellectual, creative or practical intelligence and they learn to evaluate if their choice and behaviour was the most conducive choice and the practice adds towards the balance between intellectual, creative and practical intelligence.
World language provides a way of communication for children that makes them aware of their different ways of approaching challenges and gives the children and teenagers grip on their intellectual, creative and practical development.
World Language helps children and teenagers to communicate constructively with themselves and with others.
No Language NeededOne of the strong points of world language is that children who are not yet capable of expressing themselves in English are capable to communicate through this method constructively with others, which can be an advantage for children whose first language isn’t English. ‘World Language’ permits them to communicate internal processes in an easy and understandable manner from a young age on and teaches them to be self directed in problem solving.
