4. TRAINING and TESTING

Example 1: COMMON WORDS


This is an unusual exercise.

You know all the words, you know what they mean.

However: what could be a picture for each of the items?

REMEMBER:

Whatever you want to remember you HAVE to change into a picture.


Let’s do it step by step.

Here is a list of 10 common words.

  • Play
  • Hair-Wash
  • Espionage
  • Hunting
  • Nastiness
  • Laziness
  • Explanation
  • Habit
  • Following
  • Situation

What could be a picture for each one of them?

Before you click on hints, you might give it a go and come up with your own picture.

Your own pictures are a lot better than mine. Because they are yours.

Also: (usually) the first picture you come up with is the best. I don’t know why. So please take my word for it and accept it and simply try it out yourself.

If you you want some HINTS on the above words,  CLICK HERE.


Now let’s go to an exercise.

It is very similar to the shopping lists in Step 1: Association.

Connect the word on the left with the word on the right (in the most bizarre and craziest way, of course).

CLICK HERE  to go to the exercise.


You could even revise it, before you test yourself. Or you could use Test 1 as revision.

Test yourself: Test 1:  CLICK HERE  

Test yourself: Test 2:  CLICK HERE  


How is your result?

10 out of 10? Congratulations!

Did you surprise yourself?

Do you have 8 or 9 out of 10? That’s fine. Just keep practicing.

You might read some ideas in HINTS & TIPS.

If you have 7 or less, then EITHER you simply not concentrating enough OR you have to brush up on your connections. Please, please go back and re-read and practice, practice, practice Step 1: Association.

Once you have 10 out of 10 in those exercises, THEN you come back to this section.


Summary:

You do not have to know the meaning of the word.

However you HAVE to have a picture in your mind.

And: if you compare this exercise with the ones in Step 1: Association, you will notice there is hardly any difference between ‘easy’ words and other or ‘difficult’ words.

And this is the lesson of this section!!!
