Stories make lasting memories

Here is a comment from Laura Lane. I got it from Ben Slavic’s blog.

I am convinced, more and more, that teaching students to develop an ear for the language, within a caring environment in which language is acquired through stories, rather than through the memorizing of rules, is the key to success in WL classrooms. Grammar rules will soon be forgotten; stories create memories that last a lifetime.

I especially like the last sentence where she talks about the power of stories making a lasting impact. How true it is! I hope that I can develop this skill. I know that it is what is best for the students.
