How to Improve Your Memory

by Taylor Pebley September 20th, 2012 More

When learning a new language it’s helpful to know how to improve your memory. Memorization is an important part of learning. I am currently learning Spanish and have found some helpful tips on how to improve memorization skills:

Get enough sleep. Your mind is like a muscle: it won’t perform its best if it is too tired. It’s also important not to get too much sleep, which can make you feel lethargic and foggy. So how much sleep is enough for you?  Try keeping a regular sleep schedule and adjust according to how you feel. You will eventually find the right number for you. Continue paying attention to your body and mind and adjust that number as needed.

Exercise regularly. Exercise does wonders for the mind, such as raising oxygen, delivering endorphins, and increasing self-discipline. Try learning and memorizing within an hour or so of your exercise. Your body and mind will still be in high performance mode from your workout.

Use mnemonic devices (click link for some great examples). Like a mind bridge, mnemonic devices connect something you already know to what you are learning. For example, I was trying to memorize the Spanish word for horse, which is “el caballo“, pronounced kah-bah-yo. I associated that word with the English word “cowboy” because they sound alike. Every time I heard the word “caballo” I pictured a cowboy sitting on a horse.

Be stress free. Stress takes a tole on the mind and body. Make sure you feel relaxed before trying to learn. If you feel stressed before learning, try some simple stress release exercises. If all else fails, have a good laugh and consciously put away your troubles long enough to be relaxed and stress-free. Then jump into your learning and memorization with an open mind and smiling face.

Increase your brain power. Lastly, strengthen your brain by solving puzzles and brain teasers. Even better, find brain teasers that require memory exercises! If you start to feel frustrated while trying to memorize new words or phrases, take a break and find a few memory exercises that are fun and interesting to you. Try doing one per day for a week and see how much your memory improves.

Try these tips to help improve your memory in the language you are learning. Not learning a language yet? Guess what, learning a new language happens to be a great way to increase your brain power. Comment with your thoughts and suggestions. I am learning another language myself and could use all the help I can get!

    Hello,
    I very much agree with the first point. Sleeping enough is instrumental when it comes to memorize. Einstein used to sleep a lot! Not to be stressed is good also to focuse better. Memorizing words and sentences is very important for learning a language. Something i really need to work on, by the way:). Regards!

    Hello Taylor,

    Thanks for informative tips on How to increase your memory power. We don’t just think with our mind, we also use our body. For example, research has shown that we understand languages better if it’s accompanied by gestures.
    Everyday we receive a huge amount of information but we only remember what we consider important. A good trick to help you remember everything is thinking that everything is important.

    This is the most important factor you want to consider. Anything that deals with one’s health has to be accurate. It’s the only way to go. You don’t want to go rushing in to the ER (Emergency room) just because your machine tells you got super high blood pressure. You don’t want that kind of problems and worries.

    To understand the concept better, take for example, that a dedicated server
    is like owning your own separate bungalow. 0 that makes shopping online a different
    experience altogether. One thing you need to remember is to look at the way you are designing your website, the
    website acts your representative online either when you are logged in
    to the internet or when you are logged off.

    I hardly leave remarks, but i did a few searching and wound up here How to Improve Your
    Memory | Language Learning – Blog. And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you usually do not mind.
    Is it just me or does it appear like some of these responses come across as if they are coming from brain
    dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing at other online social sites,
    I’d like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of all of all your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    If you do not develop this skill, you are going to
    find yourself stuck in thousands of half finished projects and an IM venture that won’t ever be
    a success. SEO is the most prominent tool to drive a huge traffic rate, as search engines

    This is considered to be the main risk with rhinoplasty
    and it accounts for 5-15% of the cases that cause revision surgery as based on studies.
    However it creates a subtle natural-looking
    result that doesn’t appear too overdone. Lack of hospital privileges really should sound alarm
    bells within your thoughts.

    One can also use a device as mentioned here > http://www.giftick.com/raj/94/ to remember things in your daily routine. This device can stick to anything at your home. Stick it to your medicine bottle and tap on the device if you have taken the medicine. If you will forget to take medicine than you will also forget to tap on the device. Since you didn’t tap on the device, the device
    will know you haven’t taken the medicine and it will send a notification on your smartphone that you have forgotten to take your medicine.
