The development of memory 14

Another method for better memorization is structuring. Using this method means organizing the information you know. Figuratively speaking, you need to find the right shelf for a new piece of information so that it will be easier for you to find it later.

Hi Oleks,

That's a very good point! When it comes to learning new languages for example, it is very easy to "bombard" your memory with tonnes of information (new vocabulary, phrases etc) without thinking about structuring it properly.

Very good text and audio indeed!

Just one very minor suggestion

1. Another method for better memorization - Another method to help you improve your memory (again - remember that you are writing directly to the (simple) reader (like me haha) and are not writing an academic publication haha)
