In the lyrics of my DiscoTense song - Don't get tense about English tense! - I rap, 'Whatever it is you love, if you love cooking read cooking books in English, if you love watching sport - then watch sport in English.' By doing this you are able to use a subject that you already like and know all about in your own language to help make the learning process even more enjoyable. This in turn means that the meanings of words and sense of what is being spoken or written about in English will be more readily assimilated. See link to the song at the end of this article.

I look forward to learning more about this subject as I think there could be a lot said for the use of an audio version of popular books in language learning.
As always, may all your good times be present continuous and future perfect!
