How can I learn 100 Haitian Creole words in 1 day???
What are “Mnemonics”?
Mnemonic devices are Memory Aids used for learning purposes.
Here’s an example:“Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally”?
Remember hearing that as a kid in school? Of course you do. THAT was a Mnemonic Device used to help us remember the order of operations in Math.
What is the BEST Memory Aid for Learning a Language?
Why Word Pictures? Because we remember THINGS WE SEE. Think Of the last few movies you have SEEN. Isn’t it true that you REMEMBER what happened in those movies?
Because you SAW what happened. Now think of the last 15 people you’ve been introduced to only once. How many of their names do you remember? I bet that you can’t recall all of their names easily since you’ve only met them once and you simply HEARD their name and did not SEE their name,
This is why word pictures help us remember words/names when we relate a picture to what we want to remember.
Relate an IMAGE of what the foreign word SOUNDS LIKE with and IMAGE of what the word MEANS
All this can be done in your head with your imagination! Use a dictionary or Google Translate to learn new words and create images. Its pretty easy to memorize 100 words in one day.
Remember, the crazier and more abstract the image, the more MEMORABLE it will be.
