This is a very interesting training session recorded and shared on ELT Ireland Youtube channel. The presenter talked a the way that is very fascinating and brain-friendly. That means, she practices what she preaches. She gave a quick overview of how brain works, then showed the participants how to use the connection for better memorization of vocabulary.
