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.
