Creating Your Simple Book
my tips on how to radically complete and transform a language learning book allowing quicker progress.
1. Be careful of synonyms: if “go” and “walk” appear in the same lesson, learn just “go” and cancel “walk”.
2. Words of the same category (names of months, colours, days of week, fruits, numbers etc) are confusable. Learn just two or three of them and make the rest invisible both in wordlists and texts. Learn the rest one by one later.
3. Take 4-5 of most important sentences of each lesson, write their translation on the edge of the page. Keep practicing them, don’t bother much to the rest.
4. Link the difficult words to something and note your crazy story near the word. Others would laugh, but you will memorize more quickly.
This spirit of simplification in the learning process will help you think simple and start to speak easier.
In the presentation I will take my own concrete examples from different languages to show the above mentioned simplification and transformation ideas.
