The following link leads to an article which presents a critical study regarding the results of learning via Kindle- or other spoon-fed type reading system. According to the study, such an easy-to-follow delivery makes learning more of a snooze; more difficult through which to retain information.
What do you make of the study?
If you have glanced inside many of the books in the corner bookshelf in Classroom 209, you'll find much of the them are printed in a Suetterlin Script, a script introduced in 1915, and eventually taught in all German schools by 1935. After 1941 under Adolf Hitler, schools streamlined once again, and began teaching the current script we read easily today.
However students of German in the USA continued to learn the language from books printed in Suetterlin Script for many years. --> Do you think such a script would be a set-back in our quest to learn German?
--> How much of the above text can you decipher?
--> According to the study above, changing away from the less legible Suetterlin Script was a setback. Do you agree?
