How we teach words using stories
The best way to explain how we teach new words using stories is with an example. Our way of teaching words involves stories, high comprehension and high repetition. If we wanted to teach you a new word, let’s call it word X, this is how we would do it:
1) We write a collection of stories.
2) We ensure that your comprehension of each of the stories is over 90%.
3) We ensure that word X appears in the stories and repeats across the stories at a high rate. Something like in the table below:
To learn word X, all you have to do is read (or listen) to the stories and you will learn word X. You understand over 90% of each story and word X repeats so much that you don’t need to write it down nor revise it separately.
Ok, that’s how it works with one word. The process is the same with two words. If we wanted to teach you word X and word Y we would do the same thing. Stories, high comprehension and high repetition. The repetition table would look something like the table below:
The tables above are just examples. For the actual repetition tables of the words in our stories, check out the video below. The video shows the repetition table of French Stage 3, 4 and 5.
