Accelrated Learning

At Chris Lonsdale and Associates we make wide use of accelerated learning approaches in the design and delivery of all our training programmes.

What is accelerated learning? Essentially, it is the practical application of psychological research to assist individuals access the enormous potential that they have to learn new things rapidly and easily. The two central principles of Accelerated Learning are:

Material is presented in such a way that visual, auditory and physical senses are engaged to enhance the learning experience.

Left and right halves of the brain are engaged, as well as the emotional area, so that learning is more effective, faster and more fun.

Using this methodology, you can learn things very quickly. For instance, using this approach you can learn the basics of a new language in just weeks!
