Summary: <br> <br> <br> <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><br> </a><br> <a href=""></a><br> <br> <br> <br> Episode description<br> In this episode, I’d like to talk about how using stories can make memorizing words easier.  When adults try to learn a new language, they usually just try to learn words without context. Have you ever tried to memorize a long list of words? If so, then you are likely guilty of this as well. I know I am certainly guilty of this as well. So instead of studying a new word and learning its meaning in your native language, I suggest using context.<br> <br> <br> Key points covered in this lesson:<br> <br> <br> <br> * Children learn a lot from repetitive reading of stories.<br> * Words that repeat stick out to them and are easy to learn as a result.<br> * The pictures in the book give the child context and make learning possible.<br> * When adults learn a new language, they usually try to learn words without context.<br> * Audio, visual, tactile, and kinesthetic information help make the memory of a word or phrase much stronger and therefore, easier to recall when the word is needed.<br> <br> <br> <br> Copyright: <a href=""></a><br> For more information about this episode, visit<br>
