Grammar from the start

VisualUse colour coded background to support gender acquisition when teaching and practising new nouns in any topic.

AuditoryUse music and rhythm to teach and practise key structures and vocabulary

Collective memory

VKS

KinaestheticUse gesture (and miming) as strategies when introducing new language and later when eliciting it from students. Gestures are powerful ‘fixing’ agents in memory.

NB: At the point where students want to know WHY they are doing something, don’t forget to tell them why you are asking them to act, gesture, sing, mouth, use colour etc..
