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.
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!
