Look Say Cover Write Check

This technique is really simple and it works for language learning and any fact and information learning.  The brain loves it!

1  Clear your mind.  No music or distractions.

2  Read and say key info out ALOUD.

3  Say it several times.

4  Vary the speed at which you say it.

5  Vary the volume at which you say it.

6  COVER or LOOK AWAY

7  Write what you have now nearly learnt.

8  Check.

Force yourself not to take a sneaky look!  It has to be a little struggle for your brain to retain.  There’s no cheating or ‘saying it in your head instead’ or skipping steps.  You may not like this – but it works.  Don’t listen to anyone who tells you there are any easy answers to learning and revising.  No pain: no gain!
