Picture Dictionary
« on: January 02, 2010, 04:46:42 pm »
I'm not really an artist, but I found drawing pictures helps me remember words a lot quicker than if I was just memorizing straight from a dictionary. Under the same theory that Rosetta Stone uses it's a lot better to try and learn a language through direct association rather through translation.

I'll be sure to put some of my pictures up on the sight once I finish them, but it would be much better if one of the artists on the sites worked on their own version. Maybe the same person we get for our version of Rosetta Stone.

Ugh, this is reminding me of how horrible of an artist I really am...Just trying to draw a drum to illustrate 'ekong (beat) is a crap load of effort and looks like crap...

maybe you don't have to draw it. You can find a picture online and use that or just try to copy the picture as best as you can.  8)

Yeah but it's the actual act of drawing that really drills the word in, the entire time I think 'ekong, 'ekong, 'ekong. It really makes it stick.

Yeah I suggest trying it out yourself! Even just little doodles that remind you of the word make a big difference.

The difficult part comes with the more abstract words and the smaller words like we, they ect.

Hmmm.....You could draw a group of stick figures with one saying we. I don't know. Do you have anything better in mind?

Well I was think for we you have one group of people with a circle around it and a person standing alone near them to show the difference. For the word they you would do the exact opposite or something...though that would translate more as "us" and "them"

That could work. Are you planning on making these drawings into flash cards or something?

Yeah something like that. I may put them on the site, but they're very crappy so people may not know what the heck they are! I'm a skxawng when it comes to art...

No, you are a skxawng for thinking like that.  :) Keep your chin up and don't insult yourself. Just suggesting the fact that drawing the pictures to help memorize the words is good enough. People can draw their own pictures.  :)

That's what I figured, though it would be nice to be good enough that I could help others with it. Oh well, maybe an awesome artist will read this and get inspired! Or after I post a few of my own they will know it is their artistic duty to make better ones, heh.
