Why learn with short-story books?
- Our brain is not designed to memorize words in isolation. We need to relate a new input (a word, a grammar pattern, a sentence) to an image.
- Stories will provide you with visuals to relate to the new words and sentences you encounter while reading.
- When you try to use a new word or sentence, remembering the visual provided by story will help you.
- You'll absorb naturally the main principles of Italian sentence building (how to connect words and grammar together).
Serena’s storytelling method is the result of over a decade of experience teaching Italian to English native speakers in conversation-based classes.
What other readers have said:
Serena Capilli' Le Avventure di Paul a Roma is just challenging enough for someone at the A1 (beginner to A2 level while also being encouraging to the learner that they know more then they thought the did.
Using stories to learn is a great way to learn everyday phrases - often used strings of words - rather than individual vocabulary words. It really speeds up the ability of a learner to speak in public.
