In my opinion, teaching by word webs or mindmeister maps is very useful to allow students to understand all topics concerning linguistics, eg. the development from indieuropean to germamic languages relating to phonetics, morphology and lexicon. In the same way, students may find easier to get fond of old germanic literatures, as Gothic literary production (Ulphila’s Bible translation), Anglo-Saxon poetry and prose together with Old/Low high German literary production. Moreover, a great help is represented in learning Old Norse literature, too. Finally this method is good in learning medieval history, in which students find a good system to remember dates of historical events.
