How to quickly memorize foreign words?
Many of those who want to learn a foreign language are constantly asking questions – how to memorize new words to old not off the heads? However, not everyone goes to learn the words successfully. Our team has made some exciting tips that will help you remember new words more efficiently.
The brain is the Central nervous system of animals, usually located at the head (front) section of the body and is a compact cluster of nerve cells and their processes-dendrites. Many animals also contains glial cells, may be surrounded by a sheath of connective tissue. In vertebrates (including humans) distinguish brain placed in the cavity of the skull, and the spinal cord located in the spinal canal.
The first thing worth noting is the desire of the person. The more a person wants to achieve the goal, the greater the likelihood that he will not leave it half way.
The human brain is arranged so that, when we read, it converts the text in the images into our emotions and feelings, and then formed a link between new and old information.
Imagine a train. Each car assigned to the previous one, easier to spot than a conventional car. The same thing happens in our brain. When you learn foreign words, you thereby add to the brain new information which must be used immediately to create phrases or sentences.
It is easy to do. In the middle of the sheet write the word you want to remember, then take from the centre line, like a spider's web.
Each line is a kind of car that holds the words on their end. You just have to write the Association or draw a picture that tells you its meaning. No matter what you write, just do anything you think of.
This activity takes a couple of minutes, but all the concepts now lie firmly in your head, and you can easily remember the word, but seeing the Association.
And make words even easier to pop up in the head, repeat the words – because the more you do it, the easier your brain to see the words in your 'knowledge base'.
Remember the word is important but English, like any other, is not just a set of concepts, it is a tool which people use to communicate and Express their thoughts. Find examples of how a particular word is used in the text.
Write down not only the word itself, but also adjacent. For example, if you need to memorize the English word 'arrogant' (haughty), you can write: 'the tall, arrogant man' (very proud man).
This will help you to remember that 'arrogant' is the adjective used to describe people. Then try to make three complete sentences to practice using it.
Draw small pictures to remember the meaning of the word. Can't draw? Not scary, even better. Our brain gets so much repetitive information that weird picture is a kind of surprise, and surprises we always remember.
Our brain reads better visual information. Draw a funny picture illustrating the meaning of the word, and you will remember it much faster.
English learners often complain that new words are too many and difficult to remember. There's a trick that can be used to quickly learn words. Compose any, even ridiculous story, which involves all the words in English. Imagine it in detail.
We easily remember stories, especially weird, if you can recreate them in your mind. Do not hesitate to combine the words funny and awkward ways. Suppose you need to memorize 20 English words:
shoes, piano, tree, pencil, bird, bus, books, driver, dog, pizza, flower, door, TV set, spoons, chair, jump, dance, throw, computer, stone
(shoes, piano, tree, pencil, bird, bus, books, driver, dog, pizza, flower, door, television, spoons, chair, jump, dance, throw, computer, stone)
Use roots, prefixes and suffixes to guess what a word means.
For example: even if you are unfamiliar with the word 'microbiology', can you guess what it means. First, look at the prefix 'micro'. Micro means something very small. You may know that part of the '-logy' means the science, the study of something.
So, we can say that we are talking about learning something small. Also you might remember that 'bio' means life, living creature. Thus, we can come to the conclusion that 'microbiology' is the study of microscopic living organisms.
If you make a list of common prefixes (un-, dis-, con-, micro -, etc.) and suffixes (-able, -ly, -ent, -tion, -ive, etc.) and remember what they mean, you will be able to guess the meaning of unknown words in the English language.
Psychologists who study the processes of memorization, saying that there is a good way to memorize things quickly and for a long time. Use a new word as soon as you recognized him. Then use it in 10 minutes. Then in an hour. Then the next day. Then in a week.
After that, you hardly have to exert effort to remember his new vocabulary will stay with you forever.
