Episode description

Spaced repetition is a way of studying vocabulary words, usually in a foreign language, and it is scientifically proven to help you learn more efficiently. So, in this episode we are going to talk about why spaced repetition is so effective and how it works.

Take home messages

  • Spaced repetition is a scientifically proven way to learn words more efficiently. “Space” means that there is a gap in time between “repetitions” of exposures to a word. Click here.

  • Forgetting is necessary for remembering. Our brain likes “novelty”. In order to make each exposure to a word novel, we need to forget about it for a little while then be reminded again. “Oh yeah! I remember this word”. Same is true with people.

  • Studying too many words too quickly can be bad. Often called “cramming.” This causes “indigestion.” The brain needs time to digest the new words and phrases it is exposed to

  • Exposing yourself to a word less frequently over time helps push that word into your long term memory.

  • Apps like “Anki” can help you do this, but there are many others.
