As an adult trying to master a second language, I can tell you that grammar books and vocabulary lists just don’t cut it. Sure, they have their place and can be valuable for quick references during or after a conversation, but I have had more success getting to the next level by employing more “outside-of-the-box” techniques. Fun and creativity in learning makes stronger connections than merely studying a book or listening to a CD.
Creativity is a process where we see familiar things in a new way and with a fresh eye; the same thing that is happening when someone learns a new language. We are creating new memories and merging our experiences with different phrases and vocabulary. Engaging our imagination in the learning process guarantees that we will create stronger connections, and truly enjoy the process.
