My First English Poem Course: https://languagewithlisa.com/first-english-poem/
In this video I outline 4 reasons and the benefits of using poetry to learn English.
1. Stories: When we read and discuss poems, we learn about stories and this is an excellent topic of conversation. It will inspire us to think of our own stories and therefore to practice conversation using a range of vocabulary related to all the stories we have to tell.
2. Language accuracy: This is finding the right and most accurate words to say or convey exactly what you mean. Reading and writing poetry helps us practice this skill. It requires us to be very careful about the verbs, adjectives and nouns we choose. This skill is very useful for interviews and presentations or if you want a high level of English.
3. New vocabulary: When we read and discuss poetry, especially contemporary poetry, we learn lots of new relevant vocabulary that we might normally not read in other texts.
4. Creativity: It's good to use our creative minds regularly and reading and writing poetry helps us do exactly that. Language is an art so we need to think about it in creative terms.
