How to memorize a text quickly and easily. Ways that work

How does our memory work? Let's start with this question. The process of remembering any information goes through three stages. The first is short-term memory. Any data is held there for no more than a few minutes. Then the data moves into the second stage - intermediate memory. Here, it may be held for several days or a month. The third and final stage is long-term memory. Information is always stored there. Even the things we think we have forgotten. So in order to make the most of your memory, you need to take this into account. Try to immediately transfer everything you learn into the intermediate memory. And to keep the information with you as long as possible. From time to time, revise it and transfer it to the sections of your long-term memory.

10 Ways to Memorize Text

Retell it to someone else. Retell what you read and remember it four times faster. You're much more likely to master a large text much quicker if you read and retell it to another person. When you recite something, your brain neurons work much more efficiently, and you instantly transfer everything you've learned to the intermediate compartment. Work on a 20\5 or 45\15 principle. Your brain can't learn something indefinitely - it needs to be given breaks. Try the practice on yourself of teaching for 20 minutes and resting for 5 minutes; or teaching for 45 minutes and resting for 15. As a matter of fact, I work in this mode, not just studying. For example, when I write an essay for, I work for 30 minutes, after which I take a 10-minute break. Your brain will get used to such, even workloads and be as productive as possible, and you can easily learn even the most complex information. Use associative thinking. What you already know is your best weapon in learning. Make associations and analogies with the knowledge you already have on the shelves of your brain. This will help you not only to memorize everything quickly but then, if necessary, recall it much faster. Highlight key points in the text with a marker. Of course, if the text is in a textbook, you don't need to do this. But often, it is printouts, photocopies, with which this method will be just great! I did it myself when I was at university - very, very helpful! Believe me, once you do it, all the unnecessary will fly away and will not interfere, and everything necessary "will stick" to your memory and will shine in it as brightly as the marker with which you have worked! Of course, to do this, you must have the skill to find important reference points in the text. Practice, and you will succeed! Read the text with expression or using a different pitch of voice. In other words, you can just dabble, pretending you're an actor (if you're not really an actor :-)). Read the text in a whisper, then in a low voice, then in a thin, mousy voice... Change your intonation - from happy notes to sad and melancholic ones. In general, feel what you read! Believe me, sometimes this is the only sure way to quickly memorize the text. Don't sit in one place. Scientists have proven that if you're not just sitting at the table over a book when you're trying to learn something, but for example, walking around the room, you can learn a text or a poem much faster. I was once discussing this issue with a student of mine. Her biology teacher repeatedly pointed out that during memorization, it is best to clean the house, put something in its place, or walk around. But on very rare occasions, sit still. Study in the morning. It doesn't matter if you are the most "lark" of all larks or a mature owl, your brain is still best at remembering information in the morning hours or when you first wake up. Of course, there are rare exceptions when a person's biological rhythms are most active at night. But, nevertheless, trying to remember something before going to bed may not only have no effect but also ruin your sleep. If you are tired, change your environment. A major mistake many people make is trying to teach without any rest. I remember myself during sessions. I allotted myself two hours to study in the morning, then went to practice. I would come home and study for another 2 hours. I was constantly diluting my study hours with other activities. And I was always amazed at the people who didn't see their friends during the session, didn't go anywhere for a walk, and just locked themselves in the house. So my friendly advice to you is to change your surroundings and give yourself a break. Use the power of your brain. You probably know how you learn best. If listening to a lecture is enough for you to be able to retell it without stuttering, you are definitely a listening comprehension type of person. For example, I perceive information best if I write it down. For me, memorizing something by ear is quite difficult. When I studied at university, I wrote notes and made all the important notes in writing. When at examination it was necessary to remember something, my notes instantly flashed before my eyes. So use your strengths in memorization. Let it sometimes take a little longer, but you will be sure of the result. In any unclear situation - go to bed. If you can't think of anything, go to sleep. When you sleep, all the information that goes into your brain is, let's say, laid out in the long term. And in general, never try to learn anything without getting enough sleep. At that point, your brain is only busy keeping you awake, and there aren't enough resources to remember anything.
