Why learn new vocabulary with pictures?

There are several good reasons to learn new English vocabulary through pictures:

  • It is one of the most effective ways of ensuring the newly acquired English words are placed
    into your longterm memory.
  • It helps you think in English rather than translate words from your native language.
  • It is fun and entertaining since the pictures teach you about the cultures where English is spoken.
