TESOL2 - Technological Language Immersion

TESOL2 is:

- The advancement in educational technology that will allow individuals to effortlessly learn languages and communicate.

- A new paradigm for linguistic teachers, teaching, and learning, through human-computer symbiosis.

TESOL2 is accomplishable using a brain-computer interface (BCI), sometimes called a direct neural interface or a brain-machine interface, and is a direct communication pathway between the brain and an external device. BCI implants in humans now exist, designed to restore damaged hearing, sight, and movement. The similarity throughout the research is the remarkable cortical plasticity of the brain, which often adapts to BCIs, treating prostheses controlled by implants as natural limbs. With current and future advances in technology, scientist could now conceivably produce BCIs that would translate speech for  second language communication, acquisition, or treatment of disease where an individual requires the regeneration of speech.

Update: Communication via Brain Computer Interface - Machine Translates Thoughts into Speech in Real Time

TESOL2 is accomplishable using nanotechnology. Translation via cochlear hair cell-nanobots allows vibrational processing and feedback for language comprehension, or environmental vibration sound analysis. Cochlear hair cell-nanobots allow comprehension of foreign languages, and the ability to receive alerts of environmental vibration stimuli.
