Bilingual brains are better

There is so much research to support language learning because it improves brain function. particularly the development of the hippocampus which encourages higher level thinking. I shared a video on how music engages all parts of the brain and that was in the form of an informative cartoon. This video on languages is someone talking. Since we use technology , we have a way of supplying content in different ways to encourage learning. There are quite a few videos on language learning and brain development. There are so many videos to choose from . Some use cartoons, some use graphical images of the brain and how it works, some use text and images. Think of your lesson as a meal. A short video or set of images can be the entrée and prepare the brain for learning. Know your audience. Some students respond better to cartoons, others like things which are upbeat with music and then others like a cheerful person talking them through the information. The video needs to be short and  look at key issues you want to tackle in your teaching. It needs to have things which students can think about and follow up with their own research. The video also needs to have audience appeal or it won’t work as a hook into your lesson and content. In a short space of time DNews provides a lot of information and things to think about language learning. You then think about how you will supply your information and then how you will finish it so you are creating a learning story and journey. We have a wealth of resources now we can access and we also have the means to make our own so we can tailor and customise according to our immediate needs. End your lesson on dessert…a little video , image or song which will create a good feeling about what they have learnt.
