Short vocabulary is an eternal problem for those who study foreign languages. We at oxbridgemind.co.uk here share proven ways to memorize new words.
The human brain saves effort (some will call it laziness): if there is a chance to simplify the process somehow, it will definitely take advantage of it. Our cunning "processor" admits new foreign words to the chamber of long-term memory far from immediately; first, they have to serve their time in a kind of waiting room - in short-term memory. If a new piece of knowledge is not accessed (i.e., used) often enough, it will be forgotten – such is the core of the brain's optimization process. However, if you repeat the memorized word often enough, even at strictly set intervals, you will quickly shove it into long-term memory. What are the secrets of correct ......read more
