Mnemonics and Memorization Techniques
"I like learning new languages, and I want to learn English... But I just can't remember all those new words!" If your problem is memorizing new vocabulary and grammar rules, consider it solved. You will have to learn just one more new word: mnemonics.
A necessity to remember thousands of new words and dozens of grammar rules is one of the obstacles that hold many people back from learning English. People are afraid to fail in memorizing lots of new information, meaning they are scared of failure in learning. The fear of failure, the terror of being called "a loser" is the main reason why so many people will never make their dreams and plans come true, including learning English.
Luckily, there is a way how you can reach the maximum of your learning potential by enforcing your natural memory abilities with the help of special techniques. This method is called "mnemonics". Actually, mnemonics are various techniques and tricks invented to make a person remember more that he would normally do. In the context of learning English language, there are some mnemonics that can be used to enhance memorizing of the language.
