What would would you do with this word:
Sometimes students ask: Isn’t that a little bit long-winded? My question back is: What is the alternative? To learn a word like above in the sense of ‘making yourself familiar with it’ I dare to say you have to repeat & revise and repeat and revise that word quite often. Can you see the picture? Of course. And easy enough it is. The task here is: to stick to your new found skill and apply it.
One time a had a medical student in my class. I have to admit he was
already a really smart cookie. And he told me this: He had to memorise medical
terms, really really long words. For the first 10 items, it took him 45 minutes
to change them into pictures. Fine. However, for the next 10 items it took him
only 15 minutes.
The message here is: with a little bit of practice you will improve very quickly, and very dramatically.
Again: practice, practice, practice.
