The article discusses the degree in which a commonsensical approach to L2 lessons in early education complies with what relevant literature and research stipulate in this respect. Thus understood compliance is addressed on four levels: with reference to a general approach, affective aspects, cognition and behaviour. On each level substantial “seamlessness” is noted, i.e. a high level of common sense – science concordance. The text has been prompted by a never-ending search of many for a wonders-making method, with the belief in such a magical key to foreign languages being argued here to be an erroneous and misleading assumption. The article closes with a reflection on the transferability of common sense to higher levels of L2 education and several commonsensical implications for language teachers to follow.
