Summary/Abstract: In a previous publication we discussed the basic concepts and principles of suggestopedia from the point of view of a holistic approach to personality and the process of foreign language teaching and learning. The present article enriches the theoretical review by adding the three fundamental pillars formulated by Lozanov, namely love, freedom and prestige, and by interpreting them in a linguistic-pedagogical context. It also introduces the three groups of methods used in suggestopedia and the way they are closely related to the main principles. The interrelation of methods and principles results in the accelerated development of communicatively oriented language knowledge and skills which are manifested in the “suggestopedic reserve complex”. Finally, the article discusses how the specific communicative and linguistic reserves in suggestopedia are complemented by the revealed psychological, psychological-physiological and social potential of learners which guarantees the unity of learning and personality development.
