Hello English speakers who want to Learn French 🙂 !
In this article I share with you Why audiobooks is effective to improve a language ?
Listening to audiobooks is a efficient way to improve a foreign language.
I share that with you in this article.
Improving a foreign language by listening to audiobooks is effective because :
You can choose funny stories, stories that make you laugh, it stimulates the pleasure of learning, at that time learning is no longer boring but becomes a source of pleasure.
This stimulates the creation of dopamine (this neurotransmitter directly influences the behavior). Dopamine enhances usually beneficial actions such as eating a healthy food by providing pleasure by activating some sort of “reward system”. It is also involved in some “non-corporeal” pleasures like listening to music.
This requires the use of different types of memory :
- Visual memory : for example, it is possible to read the story before listening to it, in this way I use only one memory, the visual memory. This makes it possible to see information for the first time, not to create cognitive overload (which is the case if I use visual and auditory memory at the same time).
- Auditory memory : then I can read and listen at the same time (the cognitive load will be less strong than if I used these two types of memories from the first listening (or listen only) .The memory works a lot by association, use the memory auditory at the same time as visual memory allows the brain to make associations and thus memorize vocabulary words or sentence structures more efficiently.
- Kinesthetic memory (the memory of the body): to associate words, expressions with movements of the body. For example, I can associate the action of driving a car, making the gesture of driving. It’s very effective! The brain makes the link between the image and the motor action.
I do it for English and it made me want to do it for French.
This is the method I want to create!
