How to remember people's names and faces 9

Name binding
During acquaintance, try quickly to highlight the memorable trait of a person, and attach it to their name. It will be good if this trait corresponds to their name. For example, Harry - he has a long hair, Robert - he is very robust, Ellie - she is very elegant, and so on.

Fluency

The learner's ability to speak continuously by chunking and linking words together. For example, instead of saying very slowly, "I - am - poor. I - have - no - money" like a robot, a fluent speaker would say, "I'm poor because I don't have any money."

I really like this technique, Oleks!

It encourages us to be creative and I think this would really help me.

The problem is that some names are ridiculously common in the UK (like "Jack" and "John", or "Ellie" and "Olivia") so this technique might get a bit tricky in these types of situations.

I just have one additional comment

1. Your pronunciation of the word "robust"
