Community Language Learning (CLL) is a teaching method developed byCharles Curran, a professor of psychology and a counsellor.
Essentially, the method consists of using psychological counselling
techniques in the language classroom. The teacher is referred to as the 'knower'. The knower's
role is to assist the learners to articulate what they want to say in
L2. When an individual student is ready to say something, s/he says it
to the knower in L1 and the knower translates the message into L2.
