As a foreign language teacher, I always use drawing to help students learn the language. Students love drawing and it is a very motivating tool that I enjoy using every day.
I have most of my students draw pictures in their notebooks beside newly acquired vocabulary.
I also have them do so on their worksheets, copybooks etc
When children “draw”, I can see them concentrate and relax at the same time.The mind opens up and language can “pour” in. It really can.
I assume my children are highly creative (they are!) and I treat them as such.And even if I don’t feel creative one day, you know the saying—“Fake it till you make it.”
Connection is the key.
