everyday lifeworld and language learning.

We can determine that language pedagogy is a flux between language centered and learning centered approaches, but even then we would be missing the significance of human learning, and the significance of learning other languages in their contexts. While as educators we may be ultimately concerned with what takes place in the classroom, what takes place in everyday circumstances, is of greater concern. That area, which is regarded as the life-world is of greater importance that what takes place in the classroom.

A classroom is an individual’s extended environment that reflects a persons life-world.  A persons life must be in order before classroom learning takes place.  The persons life directly affects their experience in the classroom.

Just as physicists examine the world of particles, we scientist/educators examine the life-world of classroom participants.
