Students of all levels have an inherent need to actively engage with the material presented; for both young and old learners this can be an extremely involved experience, capitalizing on each of the 7 types of learning, especially auditory learning
The Importance of Listening
According to Snow (1996) in More than a Native Speaker; many language programs devote more attention to speaking rather than to listening
Additionally classroom exercises with listening components often consists of “slow, clear classroom practice”
“A student who is a good listener can generally keep a conversation going by being a good listener and occasionally responding with simple questions, short answers, or even grunts and nods”
Listening exercises encourage students to develop a range of cultural background knowledge that helps them predict what they might hear in order to comprehend a message

Benefits Assessment: SEASSI Methodology
First the SEASSI learning method is simply faster, while the Lexical Approach is excellent for a six-month curriculum, it does not suit the needs of teachers and students in four week intensives sessions
Placing multiple levels of learners in a single classroom has its
By ensuring that the students are learning simple tunes, this creates an association between auditory and visual memory in the mind of the students
This can be particularly helpful when studying a tonal language
Furthermore, in the SEASSI methodology we see that the cultural context of the language experience really comes alive
