It’s about communication, over.

Instruction and much of what is important in life is about communicating effectively with others.  In search and rescue training we talk about the importance of closed loop communication.  As with many other important life lessons, “The Family Guy” provides a fine example.

Another thought regarding communication; if we accept that people have multiple intelligences or different cognitive strengths (e.g. linguistic, logical-mathmatical, spatial, musical, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal and naturalistic) and possess differing learning styles or preferences (e.g. visual, auditory, kinesthetic) it is only logical that our instructional communications will be more effective when we address them in their own language.
