Chigusa: Alright, Peter, so before we get into the tips… I want to ask a question. Why do we forget what we learn so quickly?
Peter: Now, that's a great question, Chigusa. Before I answer it... I think once you understand "why we forget," you'll never approach learning the same way again. You'll become a better learner; you'll start remembering more… and you’ll learn the language faster.
Chigusa: Okay, I like the sound of that.
Peter: But to answer, it's just how our brains work. We'd like to think they're computers, right?
Chigusa: Yeah… where if you put in information, it says there forever…
Peter: And you can recall it in an instant. But our brains unfortunately are not like that.
Chigusa: Right.
Peter: So, anything you learn, hear, or try for the first time — it goes into your short-term memory...
Chigusa: …which is short-term. How short-term is it?
Peter: Studies show you forget around 70% of what you learn in a day. So, as a rule: expect that you'll forget it.
Chigusa: Wow. That explains why cramming for tests doesn't work.
Peter: That's a great point, Chigusa. Exactly. Once you realize how quickly your brain forgets things, there's no point in studying one thing for hours. It's better to come back and review for just a few minutes a day…every day.
Chigusa: So, then, if you want to remember, that's what you should do, right?
Peter: Exactly. You need to move what you learn from your short-term memory… into your long-term memory. And you do that by repetition and ongoing practice. A little bit each day. That's when your memory gets stronger.
Chigusa: Okay, got it. so let's do a quick recap
Peter: One: If you learn something for the first time, expect that you'll forget it. That's natural.
Chigusa: Two: If you forget words, it's because the neural connections in your brain are still weak.
Peter: Three: To remember it, you'll need to come back to repeat and practice. That's when those connections get stronger…
Chigusa: And that's when the language goes into your long-term memory.
Peter: So, listeners, here's how to remember everything you learn… with our program.
Chigusa: Number one: Take our audio and video lessons.
Peter: In every lesson, we repeat the conversation 3 times… just so you remember it better.
Chigusa: And all the words, phrases, and grammar rules that you learn in lesson 1…
Peter: … .you'll see them again in future lessons—to reinforce your memory.
Chigusa: And that ongoing repetition in our lessons...will help you remember everything better.
Peter: Number two: Download the dialogue tracks…
Chigusa: ...which give you just the conversation in the target language. No translations.
Peter: That way, you can play native conversations as much as you want, until you know them by heart.
Chigusa: Just listen to them like you'd listen to music on your smartphone.
Peter: Number three: Take our assessment exercises.
Chigusa: One of the best ways to remember more… is to test yourself.
Peter: When you try to remember what you've learned… listeners, that's when you're flexing your brain. That's when your memory improves. It’s called active recall.
Chigusa: So test yourself often with our brand new assessment exercises.
Peter: And you'll find them inside our Recommended Learning Pathways.
Chigusa: Number four: Use our spaced repetition flashcards to learn words.
Peter: Spaced repetition is designed to improve your memory.
Chigusa: These flashcards quiz you on words…
Peter: ...and space them out so that you see them one day later, then in 2 days, then in 4 days…
Chigusa: ...and as a result, you'll remember them better.
Peter: It's hard to remember to come back and review certain words…
Chigusa: But the flashcards do it all for you.
Peter: They quiz you on words at the right time so that you don't forget them.
Chigusa: Number five: Practice speaking and or writing daily.
Peter: Come back to a lesson that you took the day before, and practice that dialog a few times.
Chigusa: And do that same dialog over the span of a few days. Say it out loud, or write it out.
Peter: Using the language will help you remember it better. And if you practice a dialogue in multiple ways… like reading it, then saying it out loud, then writing it out… this is called interleaving - a learning tactic where you mix up your practice approach. This helps you remember better.
Chigusa: Peter, this is why you have the 50% input, 50% output rule, right?
Peter: Exactly. Just hearing or reading is not enough. It's only half of the equation. You won't remember it as well...if you don't produce the language.
Chigusa: Number six: Ask yourself questions like….
Peter: What did I learn in this lesson? What was the main grammar point? How do I say this phrase in my target language?
Chigusa: Asking yourself questions…. And answering them… is another way of testing yourself…
Peter: ...which helps you remember everything better.
Chigusa: And you can also ask your Premium Plus teacher for help… if you can't answer a question.
Peter: Number seven: Get a notebook and take notes.
Chigusa: And come back to review the notes.
Peter: This is actually my favorite. So, listeners, take just one tip from the ones we gave right now…
Chigusa: ...and do it every day.
Peter: Remember, you'll remember the language better by practicing and reviewing a little bit every day.
Chigusa: ...and not by cramming for hours and hoping it sticks.
Peter: And if you want our bonus routine-building calendar PDF...
Chigusa: ...so you can build a routine and remember to come back every day to practice….
