When you are studying English or any new skill for that matter, it has been proven in many studies that when you have good feelings while learning then the lesson is remembered for longer. You can recall the skill taught and use it more quickly when you can remember it. The brain can find it when you need the information.
When you study and it is no FUN or is boring, then the lesson is forgotten as soon as it is over. The brain has no attachment to the skill and it is lost in the vast information processed in the brain. Maybe you will find it again with revision of the lesson and further inputs to attach the lesson and information. This is why when we cram for a test and study the night before to pass the test, the information is present. But in a week or a month it is very difficult for the brain to access this information again. The emotional tags were not made with good feelings and the brain stored them in a distant place in the memory bank as “UNIMPORTANT”.
So when learning your teacher should incorporate FUN and energy to ensure the student can remember the lesson for a long time. The lessons are always more available to the memory banks and to the front of our brain’s filing system marked “IMPORTANT”. This attachment made with good feeling has a stronger tie to it and will be remembered fondly at a later time. These lessons are creating the good feeling now and good feelings later.
Laughter while learning not only stimulates your brain but your whole body also and produces good feeling now and good feels later also. The LEARNING is attached in the brain’s filing system with the emotional label to assist with recall and use of the skill needed to fulfill the task at hand. This important way to develop lessons around the end result for the students learning for high retention and information built around the good feelings while LEARNING English.
ENJOY LEARNING TODAY. Laugh and have FUN.
