Becky: Alright, Peter. Let’s talk about the one thing our listeners love- learning tactics!
Peter: Becky, I love this topic too. So, let’s get into it!
Becky: Why is reading along while listening or watching a lesson so powerful?
Peter: Well, picture this. You’re listening in on a REAL conversation... in the language you’re learning. This is the first time you’re hearing it outside of your study materials.
Becky: Hmm. I don’t think I’d understand it. Maybe I’d recognize 1 or 2 words!
Peter: Listeners, have you heard the language you’re learning spoken in real life?
Becky: Was it too fast? Did you have trouble understanding everything? It’s common for beginners to struggle with understanding actual conversation. Let us know.
Peter: Now, imagine you’re hearing the conversation.
Becky: Okay.
Peter: But... you can read along. The transcript of what’s being sand and the translations are right in front of you.
Becky: If I can read along... I can pick out every single word. If there’s a translation, I know what the words mean instantly.
Peter: And here’s why that works so well. When you’re learning something new...
Becky: ...such as a new conversation...
Peter: Your brain looks for old information to connect it to, to make sense of it.
Becky: Ah, I see.
Peter: And if there’s nothing to connect it to, it’s really hard to learn it. You have no idea what you’ve heard. You easily forget about it.
Becky: So, by reading along, I can instantly connect what I hear to what I read!
Peter: Exactly. You have something to connect it to- an instant translation.
Becky: Right.
Peter: Also, by reading it in the target language as you listen, you’ll learn the proper pronunciation....
Becky: ...so if you hear that phrase again, you’ll instantly recognize it!
Peter: Exactly. And when you hear it spoken, you can visualize it.
Becky: So that means you improve your listening and can remember words.
Peter: It’s also extra reading practice so you’ll be reading faster...
Becky: ...and if you read out loud, you’ll be speaking faster!
Peter: Now you’re getting it Becky. Finally, you stay laser focused by doing this.
Becky: Really? How so?
Peter: Well, picture you’re reading a regular textbook. Think about how easy it is to get distracted.
Becky: Oh, that’s very easy, I think!
Peter: Now, if you’re listening and following along visually, word for word...
Becky: ...you’re combining both senses, sight and sound…
Peter: ...and staying focused while you learn is that much easier!
Becky: Alright, how can our listeners do this on our site?
Peter: Listeners, here are the 3 ways you can apply this tactic to our learning system...
Becky: The first one is Lesson Transcripts.
Peter: Listeners, this a simple but extremely powerful tool. Lesson transcripts simply give you the full transcript of the lesson...
Becky: That is, every single word our teachers say....
Peter: ...so you don’t have to just listen or watch.
Becky: You can read along and never miss a word or a grammar rule.
Peter: Lesson Transcripts are available for every single lesson.
Becky: And that goes for both Audio and Video lessons.
Peter: Just look for “Download PDFs” on any lesson page to download the Lesson Transcript.
Becky: Or tap on Lesson Transcripts if you’re using the Innovative Language 101 App.
Peter: Just play a lesson, and read along to master everything you hear.
Becky: Number two- Lesson Notes. You can find them in the same spot, “Download PDFs.”
Peter: ...or look for the “Lesson Notes” icon on the app.
Becky: So if you’re wondering what Lesson Notes are...
Peter: These are in-depth lesson notes about the lesson.
Becky: You can read the target conversation of the lesson...
Peter: ...so you can instantly understand the meaning of what you hear.
Becky: And of course, they include bonus material on grammar, vocab, and cultural insights.
Peter: Read along with a lesson, review after you’re done...
Becky: ...and you can even print the Notes out!
Peter: Number three- If you’re a Premium user, take advantage of the Line-by-Line Audio.
Becky: This tool is meant to perfect your pronunciation and sharpen your listening...
Peter: ...through hearing the lines again and again...
Becky: ...and by recording your voice and comparing it with native speakers.
Peter: But listeners, you can also read with it.
Becky: Line by Line comes with the conversation script...
Becky: ...and the translation, so you instantly know the meaning as you read.
Peter: Find it on the lesson page, under Learning Materials, or inside the App.
Becky: So listeners, all of these features let you instantly make the connections...
Peter: ...between what you hear and the meanings...
Becky: ...so that you learn faster, stay focused and learn twice as fast.
Peter: And remember, if you want to unlock these features and...
