    Well thank you for that. I would add that "Jungle" teachers prefer the inductive method: like "hard immersion" in language studies. "Zoo" teachers prefer the deductive method--traditional grammar and vocabulary drilling in language learning. Of course, we need both to be competent.

    I tend to be a jungle guy, but then I get scared and run to the zoo.

    I like Berkman. The stuff that needs to be in there is in there.

    i think a bit of zoo can help, but I do think the jungle has to be the primary driver of learning.

    otherwise you get this thing where people feel they have to learn all the theory before they attempt to play with other people, and end up never doing it.

    but I’ve always been quite a hands-on oriented learner, probably to a fault
