    Snack-Sized Language Episode 31: Mnemonic Mastery

    Snack-Sized Language Episode 31: Mnemonic Mastery

    In this episode of the podcast, we talk about mnemonics and how to use them to help you with your language studies.

    Want to keep learning with us? Join Language Conqueror.

    In This Lesson, You Learned:

    Five of types of mnemonics you can use:

    Acronym mnemonics: you might have learned ROYGBIV in school to memorize the colors of the rainbow, this is a great example of a spelling mnemonic.

    Spelling mnemonics: this is when you create sentence to help you remember how to spell a word. For example: merci in French, this could be my energetic rabbit chews ice. It's best if you create these yourself to make them more memorable.

    Order mnemonics: this is to help remember the order of something, like the planets or the notes of a music scale. "Every good boy deserves fun" is often used to help students remember the notes on the staff lines.

    Rhyme mnemonics: An example of this is: thirty days have September, April, June and November...

    Visual mnemonics: This is when you use a visual aid as a way to recall information and it's a very popular method used for language learning specifically.

    Featured Trade Secret:

    Try Drops! It uses visual mnemonics to help you memorize new vocabulary. It's one of my favorite tools because it's beautiful, fun, and there are tons of well-curated word lists available to you.

    Snack-Sized Language Episode 29: Power of Play

    Snack-Sized Language Episode 29: Power of Play

    In this episode of the podcast, we talk about the power of play and how to learn like kids to boost your language learning.

    Want to keep learning with us? Join Language Conqueror.

    In This Lesson, You Learned:

    As a parent, I've had firsthand experience seeing how kids learn languages. And I've been involved in supporting my children becoming multilingual.

    One of the best strategies I've both observed and tried personally is that of play.

    Play isn't all just fun and games. In fact, it's an effect way to learn, explore, process, and start to grasp new things — including language.

    Are you playing in your language?

    If not, it's something you should aim to implement.

    Think about ways you enjoy playing in your native language — whether it's board games, mobile games, video games or something else. Try doing a bit of it in your target language.

    Play is engaging, it's explorative, and it's fun. And it's so much more than that. All of this makes it an incredible learning tool.

    Featured Trade Secret:

    It's often said that kids are better language learners than adults.

    I don't agree.

    As adults, there are a lot of external influences and internal influences that "block" us from learning languages like children.

    The first is that kids don't yet see mistakes as a "big deal". As adults, mistakes are terrifying. We have a greater awareness of ourselves and what we think other people think about us.

    The other way kids are better language learners than us is that they have more free time. As adults, we have jobs, bills, hobbies, responsibilities, and other things that require our time. Kids have a lot more free time and don't feel the time pressures we feel as adults.

    By rethinking how you handle mistakes and time restrictions, you can liberate many of the mental barriers you build up around language learning.
