Apparently, there's evidence suggesting that to "own" a new word, you have to say it out loud at least 18 times. The vocalization, along with the repetition, apparently help to reinforce memories in the various language areas in your brain. Which means that you can recall and use the terms easily.
I know that seems silly . . . even childish. But think about it. Silly as it may seem, isn't it worth reducing your study time and improving your knowledge quickly?

Great to know! I'm going to try this.ReplyDelete
Do you have a reference for this? Was there a study testing this method?ReplyDelete
As stated in my article, this was conveyed to me by my former colleague Jane, who was a foreign language professor before her retirement. My impression was that she learned this at a professional conference, but I do not have a citation.Delete
Many of my A&P students who were commuting said they benefited from saying/reciting terms out loud while they were driving. I suspect that our "auditory memory" is highly underrated as a way to help us learn.Delete
This is a tip I can implement easily, thank you!ReplyDelete
