One of the most important ideas for me is to have students come in contact with culture. It helps them learn. For one class, we made tortilla — a traditional Spanish potato omelet — in my home. There were 12 students in my little kitchen. I explained what needed to happen and they got right into it. If I attach an experience to the meaning of vocabulary words, they will remember the words forever.
