The study was executed in spring semester of the academic year of 2010-2011, with 30 students studying at primary school in 3rd, 5th and 7th grade. The students who participated in the study were elected randomly. 15 students elected (Control group) were given the phrases verbally and 15 students (Experiment group) were given as visualized and the students were made to talk about those phrases. Qualitative method was used in the study. The data of the study were collected using semi-structured interview technique. The data obtained were analyzed using the method of content analysis. As a result of the research a meaningful difference was found between the experiment and control groups in terms of contribution of the visualized phrases on the number of words used during the speech to the advantage of the experiment group. Although very little difference was observed among the 3rd, 5th and 7th grade students in terms of the words they used about the verbal phrases, it was observed that they used more words during the speeches related to the visualized phrases.
