Learning with all the senses: Movement, images facilitate vocabulary learning

Learning with all the senses: Movement, images facilitate vocabulary learning | Process Drama in language learning | Scoop.it
"Atesi" -- what sounds like a word from the Elven language of Lord of the Rings is actually a Vimmish word meaning "thought". Scientists have used Vimmish, an artificial language specifically developed for scientific research, to study how people can best memorize foreign-language terms. According to the researchers, it is easier to learn vocabulary if the brain can link a given word with different sensory perceptions.
Holly Dilatush's insight:

Love that we're seeing more and more validation for 'connecting' with language in meaningful ways...      even if folks are avoiding the use of the word 'drama'
