All the information you study using this method should be sorted out by the principle of accordance with each piece of information to certain criteria. Maybe another sentence explaining"principle of accordance".For example, if you study new English words, you should categorize words, such as: “socks” and “shirt” on the shelf “clothes”, and put words “joy” and “sadness” on the shelf “feelings”.

Hi Faye! Thank you! I will think about how to add another sentence. "Categorize words" sounds better than my option.

Very good explanation there Oleks! This is how I go about teaching too :)

Just some suggestions

1. should be sorted out - should be sorted by (when you sort something out, you resolve it. You "sort out" problems)

2. “socks” and “shirt” on the shelf “clothes”,  - “socks” and “shirt” on the  "clothes shelf" (In my kitchen "I don't have a shelf "tea and coffee " but a "tea and coffee shelf" if that makes sense?)

3. words “joy” and “sadness” on the shelf “feelings”. - words “joy” and “sadness” on the "feeings shelf"
