Make It Last
9 Tactics for Memorizing, Understanding, and Retaining a Foreign Language
Make your language-learning experience unforgettable.
We've all done it: crammed exhaustively for several hours the night before an exam, fueled by energy drinks and chocolate bars. You pat yourself on the back as you regurgitate the information on the paper the next day, then promptly forget it, as if you'd never learned it at all. This method may help you pass tomorrow's exam, but it certainly won't help you understanding and retain the material in the long run. Learning a foreign language is not just about passing a test—it's about the long-term goal of communication. In this eBook, we'll explore 9 language-learning tactics that ensure deep understanding and long-term retention, including:
- Use Spaced Repetition
- Engage Your Senses
- Teach Someone Else
- Change Your Environment
- And more!
