Akita JALT:

Effective Language Learning Strategies and Techniques

Date: Saturday, June 22nd, 2002 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Dave Ragan

The presenter believes that every language learner needs a portable recorder to collect and review her target language. Come to this workshop to find out why and how.
We will learn about the STARS vocabulary study system, the review cycle, and flashing all using the old fashion vocabulary cards. The presenter will introduce very basic mind mapping and some other useful techniques and skills. Prticipants are requested to bring a portable recorder such as a cassette recorder or MD recorder or one of the newer IC chip recorders. These relatively cheap devices can greatly enhance your language learning if used correctly.
About the speaker: Jarrett Dave Ragan Jr. is an Assistant Professor of ESL at MSUA. He has been interested in how people learn since 1975 when he first successfully learned Spanish. This interest led him to teaching English in 1978 and to brain compatible learning and teaching in 1993.
