She could associate vocabulary items with images as babies could. Imagine you were just a baby.

She suggested a useful way of learning the language. She put mind maps on the walls. Then she could refer to them when she wanted to.

If you want to learn English well, you could follow the same methods. Leaning a new kind of language could be painful as in Sullivan's case of learning French (at university), as she described. Try different methods. One of the methods may suit your learning style.

如果你想學好英語,可依循相同的方法。學習新語言可能如 Sullivan 所述,學習法語一樣千辛萬苦。試著不同的方法。眾多方法的一個,可能適合你的學習風格。
