Immersive Language Learning: Options and Considerations
Memories made in meaningful places go deeper, last longer and build better connections with other memories. Our minds are spatial by nature, but often we learn languages in places that have not relation to where we hope to use that language. What if you could learn to order a coffee in a coffee shop; check into a hotel at reception; describe a picture at the museum; make a friend at an actual event? Now we can add locations to our language teaching tool box... and that's just the start. But how do you get started and what should you consider as your approach these new tools?
