Emotional approach, attention to student and fast overcoming the barriers: the Creator of a revolutionary method of learning foreign languages Igor Shechter turned 100 years old. Thanks to its unique pedagogical invention to learn a foreign dialect becomes several times easier. Indeed, based on the illusion of total immersion in the language environment.

— Cogito ergo sum — I think, therefore I exist.

Quotes Descartes, fluent in German and French: in its 100-year anniversary of Igor Shechter, a legendary linguist who never ceases to work. The work of his whole life — his own method of teaching foreign languages.

"A person expresses themselves, their actualization in the moment when he speaks. That said, he puts himself," he says.

The method of Schechter — emotional-sense, revolutionary in the 70-ies and is widely recognized as nowadays. The center for the study — not the object itself, a strict teacher, assessment and the rules, and the student. Playing between the scenes of ordinary lives, the students begin to speak in a foreign language from the first class — intuitively, even with errors. But most importantly — immediately overcome the language barrier.

"A lot of attention to the psychological side of the learning process. This applies to any system of education, training, but language is extremely important," says linguist Dmitry Petrov.

The academic community recognize this approach immediately. But Igor is a veteran of the great Patriotic war, reached almost to Berlin — and science is always at the forefront. A fighter, an innovator, an author of many scientific papers and books, and in his 100 years, he continues to keep up with the times.

"He is interested in everything that happens in the world, it is always in the thick of things, always familiar with all that is progressive that is new," says Director, DLO "School Schechter "Living language" Irina Aleksandrova.

Three schools in Moscow, dozens in the regions. Thousands of students who know the language of Shakespeare, Goethe and Montesquieu.

Among them are people known all over the country. Hero of the Soviet Union, pilot-cosmonaut Georgy Grechko, the President of the Pushkin Museum Irina Antonova. The effectiveness of the method shahterskoe she had to check almost immediately.

"She went to the Biennale in Los Angeles. The next day all the Newspapers of Los Angeles wrote: "What a brilliant candidate for Chairman was proposed — she perfectly spoke English!" says Schechter.

The secret of success of the technique as the secret of longevity, Igor explains simply: work should be fun. Here in the centenary, he is not detached from their work — preparing all the gift of a new book.
