Want to learn more words in your target language? And want to learn them faster?
38 Experts share their most effective vocabulary-building method with you.
Probably the most balanced advice on learning vocabulary you’ll ever find.
Would you remember more writing something down as opposed to just typing it?
Studies suggest: Yes.
And it makes sense:
Typing is just pushing some buttons, while writing involves creating the shape of the characters on your own.
It’s also slower, which exposes you the material for longer at a time.
So then, I thought, it could work with language learning as well.
And that’s what I wanted to find out, albeit in a humble way.
Time for something new.
I always thought it would be great to run some tests and publish the results on Smart Language Learner.
You know, testing the efficiency of language learning methods and sharing the results with you.
Well, I’m going to do just that in a new series called: Vocab Wars.
In each installment, I’ll try to learn 50 new words in 100 minutes by using a different vocabulary learning method.
When it comes to learning foreign vocabulary, rote learning is what most language learners dread most.
Fortunately, research now suggests that vocabulary is best learned by using the different senses.
According to a recent study, done by the Max Planck Institute, performing gestures while learning new words is particularly effective.
Welcome to the first ever Smart Language Learner case study report.
I’m doing a case study on the Udemy video course: How to Learn and Memorize the Vocabulary of any Language. It’s all about using memory palaces to learn foreign vocabulary.
How did I do in the first week?
All my experiences are documented in this first case study report.
