In order to retain vocabulary, learners need to be provided with opportunities to process it, manipulate it, and use it in meaningful contexts. Using pictures and text is a great way to introduce vocabulary. It draws from the learner's background knowledge, has the potential of depicting real cultural information, and helps the teacher stay in the target language. Eventually, as the learner gets more familiar with the vocabulary, the text can be removed from the pictures. Although the free Spanish dialogues do not contain pictures, they now have a more interactive format. Students can listen and fill in the blanks, as well as use a dictionary provided to create more opportunities for incidental vocabulary acquisition to occur. Enjoy!
