Multisensory Learning

What is Multisensory Learning?

Multisensory learning helps students better process and retain information. Instruction or “input” that engages multiple senses — visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile — opens multiple neural pathways in the brain that promote language development and long-term memory. Multisensory input is instruction that engages the senses, which engages the brain.

This neuroscience-based approach overcomes the “in one ear and out the other syndrome" that sometimes happens with single-modality instruction. Language Tree Online employs a variety of sensory modalities in our hybrid program to support English language acquisition.
