Why pleasurable listening works so well in language learning.

An interesting article that further supports the idea that listening, lots of pleasurable listening to interesting content, is effective in language learning.

A couple of comments from the article.

“Just perception – listening – is helpful. Our volunteers didn’t repeat the words.”

“Dr Shtyrov’s method struck a chord with Paul Noble, a language teacher whose gets pupils to “forget” what they have just learned.

He thought repetition was the key – but the brain learned best when it was relaxed and not trying to remember anything at all.”
