The method of associations 1

The method of associations is one of the most effective methods, using which we connect what we already remember and what we want to remember. To use this method successfully, we need to develop our imagination and ability to find common features between different concepts and objects.

It sounded pretty good to me. Perhaps a louder voice with more force and less nasal.

Hi Oleks,

Yet more very good observations! When it comes to learning languages (what I really enjoy doing) it is so important to try to find patterns between the different words and grammar you are taught. For example, when learning how to conjugate verbs in the past tense in a new language, it is important to pay attention to how the majority of verbs are conjugated. This will help you quickly learn new ones.

I agree with Faye's suggestion - that one sentence was a bit too long and complex.
