This is interesting and inspiring, thank you so much!

I'm trudging through a Tefl course - it's much harder going than I expected - and this technique is fun and obviously effective.

I'm going to try this with my four year old niece - her L1 is Spanish, which I'm learning, so excellent for both of us.

OMG! Thank you so much. This is a game changer! My Ukrainian pre-beginner learners have really been struggling with vocabulary and I can’t wait to try this method. I just used ChatGPT to create a short story about making borsch.

Only one question: I could not prevent the chat bot from inserting the English translation of the Ukrainian food words parenthetically after each lexical item. This is not how you describe the procedure, and I am curious about your thoughts on having translations embedded in the story.
