I’m not a fan of multi-tasking bar one exception. It involves language acquisition.

When you listen and read (ListenRead) this is a form of multi-tasking. But I want to describe something a little different.

Recently I scanned my (HP) book for sample sentences. At the same time I listened. However, since I scanned much more quickly than the narrator spoke, the text did not match. I discovered myself working on different chapters.

This helped me! My attention could drift between reading and listening; I felt no pressure to keep up or concentrate. I had an excuse to relax. I learned.
