Jeremy’s English Tips Episode #18: Using Stories to Make Memorizing Words Easier

Episode description

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.

Key points covered in this lesson:

  • Children learn a lot from repetitive reading of stories.
  • Words that repeat stick out to them and are easy to learn as a result.
  • The pictures in the book give the child context and make learning possible.
  • When adults learn a new language, they usually try to learn words without context.
  • 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.
