Memory Activities for Language Learning explores the cognitive processes of memory and provides a bank of activities to facilitate their development. This book will help teachers discover what makes language memorable, as well as how to optimize learners language memory by engaging and developing their abilities to recognize, notice, store, retrieve and reactivate language.
