Learning a language - what's the recipe?

Is there a recipe for learning a language? For neurolinguits Lance Knowles, there is. And it boils dwon to three key elements:

- Listening

- Speaking

- Minimal exposure to text (this unnecesarily distracts the brain)

Is it that simple? That means we'll have to change the way we do things in a classroom.
