Have you ever had this: you want to express your thought in English, but you cannot remember the right words? This happens to everyone who learns a language, because vocabulary acquisition is a difficult task. English contains many expressions with different meanings. Below is an unusual way to help you memorize English vocabulary effectively.
How to do it?
The most effective way is to see words within a certain context, using them constantly. What if you need to memorize a large set of new vocabulary?
Many people use flashcards to study. But even safer is to keep a catalog of such cards in your head. This is called the “loci method ”. Recall the British television series "Sherlock": when a detective wanted to remember important information, he mentally moved to his "mind palace". It was also called “the palace of the mind”.
How it works?
L oki is Latin for " place " or " location ", which we use to memorize new words.
Walk around the apartment (or another place that you know well) in a specific order, number each object that comes your way. Remember this list. You will get from 10 to 20 words - they will become key, you will use them to memorize others.
For example, your words are: table, door, mirror ( table, door, mirror ), but you need to remember the list of products that should be purchased in the store: bread, milk, eggs ( bread, milk, eggs ). Associate each item to be remembered with an item on the key list. Try to present it vividly and in detail. The effectiveness of this method has been confirmed at the research level.
We hope this unusual way will help you in learning English!
