The Karadi Path methodology is an award-winning innovation in education that creates an immersive English language environment in classrooms. Its non-linear and non-instructional approach allows children to learn English by discovery, by intuition, and by sensory engagement. Children derive English the same way they pick up their mother tongue or any other language from the environment. For this to happen, stimulating story-based and functional contexts are created in the classroom.
The Karadi Path method can be described as:
Intuitive: Uses intuitive intelligence (right-brain oriented) over logical intelligence (left-brain oriented) – the intelligence with which we learn to walk, learn our mother tongue and learn to sing.
Immersive: Creates a rich immersive language environment in the classroom through various modes.
Non-linear: Provides multiple paths to the goal of language learning allowing every individual learner to use his or her preferred way of learning.
Non-instructional: All learning is delivered experientially without any instructions and without explaining meanings of words or phrases.
Multi-sensorial: Learning language through listening, seeing and doing with a high focus on listening.
Multi-modal: Learning language through multiple modes such as physical activity, music and stories.
The Karadi Path methodology comprises of four modules, Action, Music, Reading and Story and integrates features of theatre to capture the elements of natural language acquisition
