I’ve just found the perfect dictionary for my classes. It’s been love at first sight!!!
Did you know that we learn 10% of what we read; 20% of what we hear; 30% of what we see ???Oh my goodness ! and I wonder why my students seem to have forgotten everything they have learned during the whole year over their summer holidays!
The good news is that the combination of what we read,hear, see and discuss reaches 70% and that’s my point with this dictionary. Shahi is a cool visual dictionary. You just type the word you need to know and Shahi combines the definition for that word with images from Flikr, Google or Yahoo on the side bar. No more struggling when trying to explain what a rattlesnake or an anteater is, just show them!!!.
And remember ” A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words”
