Music and Video
The fun way of learning a language
Any ideas
According to BPS Research Digest, as sighted in the May 2008 addition of PSYCHOLOGIES Magazine
the answer to the age old question of learning a language...
"might lie in a song...The researchers concluded that we find it easier to remember words if they're set to music, partly because it's more emotionally engaging, ...
but also because the words are structured in a way that makes it easier for us to 'segment' the information and store it in our memories".
So... let's get started
1. Choose the right song!
2. Listen to the song... just listen to it!
4. Go on the internet and find the lyrics... Utube it's a great source
5. Download the lyrics or print them and...
3. Listen and take notes... words, phrases, whatever you understand
6. Now, sing along!
7. Now, give it a shot! Do it without the lyrics... try it.
8. It's not the last, but from this step, it's up to you!
Vocabulary, Expressions, Idioms, Grammar, Phonics, Fluency, Pronunciation... endless fun!
A bit more difficult
other examples... just for fun!
but, what if I find "dirty" language or inappropriate vocabulary?
mmm, let's take a break! Then we'll work on clips, videos, pod casts, movies...
BPS: British Psychological Society
and, what are podcasts?
Podcasts may be subscribed to and downloaded automatically when new content is added.
and what about sitcoms and TV Shows?
and our famous lady...
our beloved dog
can you guess any?
also in the 60's
and my favorite!
the 70's... do you remember them?
then came the 80's
can you guess what Alf and his friend are saying?
and a quick (I promise!) view @ the 90's and the recent ones...
the CARTOONS are fun, easier to understand ... and useful material to practice... short videos
and many more!
let's see how much you can understand
List of my favorite Movies:
The Remains of the day
Sex and the City
The Lion King
and last but not least...
thank you for being here!

a little gift... since you like it so much
What does it mean to learn a language?
How much of the process are Language Schools responsible for?
10 - 20 %... tops!
So, what else can I do to learn a language or to make the process faster???

1.Having an obligation to do something as part of a job or role.
2.Being the primary cause of something and so able to be blamed or credited for it.
The Flintstones
Flintstones. Meet the Flintstones.
They're the modern stone age family.
From the town of Bedrock,
They're a page right out of history.

Let's ride with the family down the street.
Through the courtesy of Fred's two feet.

When you're with the Flintstones
you'll have a yabba dabba doo time.
A dabba doo time.
You'll have a gay old time.
And... how do I use Videos and Movies?
The same process we did with the songs!
Any ideas???
1. Choose the right one
2. Watch it ones... if it's a movie, every 15 minutes... tops!
3. Watch it again with CC (Close Caption)
4. Now, do it again... really, at least twice!
Now, if you want, look up new vocabulary, idioms, etc...
Finally, watch it again without Subtitles or Close Caption!
