What Does Confucious and Linse Say?

Dear All,

Here's an interesting contrast that I got as a combination of TWO profound quotations:

1) Confucius said (or something like this):

Tell me and I will forget
Show me and I might remember
Involve me and I will understand

2) Caroline Linse said

You need to hear a word before you can say it
You need to say a word before you can read it
You need to read a word before you can write it

Linse, C (2005) Young Learners. New York:McGraw Hill

Have a good day teaching!

  1. Hi Rodney,
    Just dropping by to say hi. I attended your Melodrama workshop during ICELT (I was the "cat"..meoow) and I think it was brilliantly done. Kudos! The Pizza Hut voucher was a purr-fect gift!Hope to catch you in other conferences in near future. Keep up the good work!

  2. Hi Nor Fadzleen,

    Thank you for visiting my blog & for attending my workshop. I'm glad you have really enjoyed yourself. Thanks for playing the role of the "cat".

    Hope the drama ideas that I've presented would be a starting point in developing your own materials.

    See you at other conferences. I'll usually present at MICELT & MELTA COnferences.
