Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1977 
14 p. 

This issue presents an English translation and the original French version of the text of a speech delivered by Dr. Georgui Lozanov at the First International Congress of Hypnopaedia and Suggesto-hypnopaedia in Paris on May 29-30, 1976. The paper is entitled "A General Theory of Suggestion in the Communications Process and the Activation of the Total Reserves of the Learner's Personality." The paper discusses research into psychotherapeutic and hypnopaedic methods which seem to indicate that "miraculous" curative and educational results are directly related to suggestion. This research led to the development of the suggestopaedic system of study, which can be applied to anyone and which activates the total reserves of the personality. This method is based on the principles of: (1) joy and absence of tension; (2) oneness of the conscious and unconscious; and (3) suggestive interaction. This method also calls for training of teachers in certain areas of psychotherapy. In experimental schools in Bulgaria, 2,000 students are learning under this system, which is now being applied not only to second language learning but to most school subjects. The system is also being tested in other countries. This text is followed by an annotated list of the papers on suggestopaedia presented at the Moscow Intensive Second Language Learning Methods Congress in January 1974. A short bibliography completes the issue. (AM)
