The development of memory 13

To do this, you need to draw a mental picture, preferably in motion. The more absurd it turns out, the better. Imagine footballers running around the field with a piece of coal instead of a ball, and one of them hits the goal with this coal. Now, remember the last frame: coal in the goal net. The connection has been established now.

Hi Oleks,

I hear a more clear distinction in your sounds when saying the words "coal" and "goal". Good job. 

To do this, you need to draw a mental picture, preferably in motion. The more absurd it turns out, the better. Imagine footballers (in English can also say, football players) running around the field with a piece of coal instead of a ball, and one of them hits the goal with this coal. Now, remember the last frame: coal in the goal net. The connection has been established now.

To do this, you need to draw a mental picture, preferably in motion. The more absurd it turns out, the better. Imagine footballers soccer players running around the field with a piece of coal instead of a ball (no comma) and one of them hits the goal with this coal. Now, remember the last frame: a coal in the goal net. The connection has been established now.

Hi Oleks,

Yet more fantastic advice for teachers like me yes

I find it hard to get my students to remember new vocabulary so I am sure this strategy will help them.

Just some comments

1. and one of them hits the goal with this coal.  - and one of them scores a goal with this piece of coal. (In English, players score goals to win matches :-) I even scored a goal when I played football yesterday haha.   )

2. Now, remember the last frame - Now, remember (try to visualise = my suggestion) this concept:

3. coal in the goal net.  - a piece of coal in the goal net.

haha thanks! However, I am not really any good at football. (In fact I am the worst player in the team haha) I just play it because it is a popular sport here in England and it is a good way of spending time with friends. Is it popular in Russia too?

Just one thing: we do not use the word "advice" in the plural form. 

Therefore you woudl say "Your advice is very useful" (Glad to hear it hehe)

I only play ping pong sometimes. :) Now sport is not particularly popular in our country at all. I am from Ukraine, I only speak Russian. As they say, the legacy of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union.

I also enjoy playing ping pong too!

Do you not speak Ukranian too if you are from Ukraine?

Yes, I speak Ukrainian, but worse. Although I read and understand what was said well. In principle, I am learning Ukrainian, but not as active as English.

I am from the southern region of Ukraine, where most speak Russian. Although it’s a pity, because now I would not want to have anything in common with Russia, even the language.
