Abstract

In this article, we reviewed the previous literature about Suggestopedia and its derived theories and examined its main features in order to develop the Program “Studying Abroad: Erasmus,” implemented in the Royal Conservatory of Music of Granada “Victoria Eugenia,” and the results obtained were analyzed. From the program created, we have designed a holistic methodology called “Learn English to the Rhythm of Bach,” a multifaceted approach involving Suggestopedia and the CRAFT Program and based on Yoga, Mindfulness, Emotional Intelligence and Positive Psychology.
