Task description & scene summary

Task description:
Listen and Tap game: ESL / EFL students will tap each of the 10 words on the screen whenever they hear each one for the very first time.
Scene summary:
Think back to a really vivid memory. Got it? Now try to remember what you had for lunch three weeks ago. That second memory probably isn’t as strong—but why not? Why do we remember some things, and not others? And why do memories eventually fade? Catharine Young gives the basics on memory and memory loss.
