The development of memory 11

Now, let's deal with the transfer from short-term to long-term memory, which, as I mentioned earlier, is carried out using imagination.
You can use the method of associations, which is a very effective method based on the establishment of connections between what you have already remembered and what you want to remember. You can successfully train the ability to use this method by training your imagination along the way.

The grammar is perfect and totally understandable. I had a little trouble understanding a few words the first time I listened and before reading. They were: associations, successfully and imagination. I would recommend practicing pronouncing these longer words a bit slower. Very good english, though.

Again good job Oleks! I agree with Bob on the pronounciations and I still think it's great that you are challenging yourself with more complex vocabulary. Here are some break downs to help with the following words: associations (uh·sow·see·ei·shn), successfully (suhk·ses·fuh·lee) and imagination (uh·ma·juh·nei·shn).

Hi Oleks,

I agree with the pronunciation comments above. I only found issue with the word "earlier" it sounded like you were mispronouncing it a bit. I'll record the word as I would say it.

Hope it helps!

Hi Oleks,

Extremely good effort!

Just a couple of (minor) suggestions:

1. You can successfully train the ability to use this method by training your imagination along the way. - You can successfully train your (remember - you are directly speaking to the reader) ability to use this method by training your imagination along the way.

2. associations - pronunciation of this word.
