香港——《江南Style》已经成了本年度最热门的音乐和舞蹈,这还是保守的说法,搞不好几周之后的中国共产党全国代表大会上都会爆出一个政治局版本的模仿视频。

这首由韩国说唱歌手Psy演唱的古怪、欢乐的小曲,一路“快马高歌”,跃至美国、英国、澳大利亚和加拿大的流行歌曲排行榜榜首。这首歌的官方视频在YouTube上的观看次数已经超过了3.5亿次,在该网站所有音乐的播放次数中排名第五。

Psy的原名叫朴载相(Park Jae-sang),今年34岁,有一对双胞胎女儿。他出生在汉城的富人区“江南区”(Gangnam district),曾就读于美国波士顿的伯克利(Berklee)音乐学院;2001年他发行了首张专辑,里面都是说唱歌曲。他原本星途平平,今年夏天突然蹿红;他不是韩国乐坛流行的那种身材劲爆、大批量克隆出来的明星。

不是每个人都欣赏他的这首歌曲。 Read more…

Learning Styles: Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic

October 19th, 2012 No comments

What is your learning style?

Helping the Auditory Learner at Home

  • Auditory learners enjoy having all the facts, hearing details, and having facts vocalized.
  • They may prefer memorizing math facts in their head, putting them to music or figuring out the answers by talking them over with you.

Helping the Visual Learner at Home

  • Visual learners are often the “why?” people.
  • They want to see the information, read about it, study the pictures and graphs.
  • They will prefer to work out their math problems on paper.
  • They are often better at understanding word problems.

Helping the Kinesthetic Learner at Home

  • If kinesthetic learners aren’t able to use their bodies somehow in the learning process, they’re going to get frustrated.
  • They like to know how things work.
  • If you can involve movement as they listen to and see the information, they’ll have a better chance of understanding and remembering what they learn.
  • When learning letter sounds, try creating a hopscotch grid outdoors, using letters instead of numbers. As they land on each letter, have them shout the sound the letter makes.
  • When practicing math, use counters such as beans, toothpicks, tiddlywinks or pennies that they can move around as you solve a number problem.
