  Power-Glide Foreign Language Courses
While we're focusing on natural language acquisition (trying to mimic how children learn) and trying to instill the same fascination in the new language that they had for their first language, classrooms are reversing the process--teaching all the rules and memorizing words and, in our opinion, stifling any possibility of real communication.
In the classroom, they will necessarily focus on discrete parts of the language and mechanics, simply because these are the objective aspects of language and the tests are more immediate (and therefore treated with greater importance) than the overall goal.
Language is the only way we have of communicating with the world around us.

  Glide language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The development of the language, both in the real world and in its fictional setting, reflects Slattery's own theories on the role of consciousness and the origin of language (and vice versa) as well as the theories of Terence McKenna regarding the link between entheogenic plants and the roots of language (see psychedelic glossolalia hypothesis).
In the novel, the Glide language was originally taught to human slaves by a hallucinogenic species of lily as a gestured language, allowing them to communicate secrets that would not be known by their masters.
The interactive areas on the Glide Project website allow real world use of the Glide language through an editor called the Collabyrinth, a "performance" area where the Glide symbols can be manipulated in real-time as three-dimensional objects, and an oracle program that uses Glide symbols in a similar fashion to the trigrams of the I-Ching.

 WannaLearn: Power-Glide Review
The vast majority of language courses we have encountered are eerily similar in their composition and organization.
A fundamental flaw in the design of most popular language courses is that they are primarily developed from and structured around the grammar of the language.
The course designers are aware that language use will be awkward and clumsy at first, and that it is far more important that students get over any inhibitions in actually using the language rather than being correct.
