About this Episode

In today's episode I discuss the question of how to have the best memory possible for learning a langauge. There are a bunch of rules of thumb to help you work out if memorizing can help you progress from where you are right now.

Speaking requires quick recall, agile thinking. Writing requires attention to detail.

Rule of Thumb: Understand the concept, learn details on a need-to-know basis.

Rule of Memorizing: Know the difference between cramming and acquiring.

Rule of Thumb for Learning a Language: Aim to make mistakes and be understood, not to be perfect and silent.

Press play and have a listen to the show for more detailed advice about memorizing, plus my personal declaration of love for post-it notes.

Thank you to Owain for this episode introduction.
