I’m very lucky because I have a great memory and when I want to remember something for a school test or for my job I can stay sure that I remember everything. I don’t have a real method to remember numbers or words but every time I have to remember something I stay concentrated and I repeat that single thing more than one time.

My memory is good. Associations help me to remember information quicker and better. Also, it`s very difficult to remember information(e.g. historical dates, abstracts) when I`m just sitting, I need to move, to go, to do something(cleaning, cooking and etc), and in this way I`ll remember information better and quicker too.

It was really interesting to listen to this audio. Moreover, I have learned some new words and nice tips which probably will help me in learning languages and other spheres of my life. All in all, I loved this lesson and tasks.

Very interesting method for memorisation is singing. I can't say that I use it before, but I have never analyzed and combained the signing as a method. That's whe we alsways remember our favourite songs

I dont think I have a good memory. Whenever i study for an exam, i always use variety of method to improve my memory skills such as singing, teaching and repeating the word in my head a lot of time. I also love to use the association technique too.

I do not consider having a good memory so in exams i need to make a big effort to remember specific things of the topics (like formulas or dates) so i can have good grades.
One of the things i do to understand topics is to write the main ideas in a board and then to explain them to my phone.

I like to think that I do have a good memory, even if it sometimes fails me when I get too nervous. I have various ways of memorizing things, like repeating many times the words I need to memorize, it also helps me to remember what music I was listening to when I was studying.

I don't have a very good memory, what I do to remember things when I'm studying is to repeat several times or I also explain to my cat or my sister, even if they ignore me, to be able to remember and understand faster, also sometimes I use images to remember, sometimes I make some cards with the image and the text and I practice it.

I do not have a good memory, unfortunately. But I know that can change. I have tried some tricks like visualizing an image when you want to remember something later and you think about it when you need to. This audio was hopeful. Definitely a great website to improve your english skills.

Yes, I've a good memory in some cases.
Anyway, I don't like using memorise because a week later you'll forget everything.
To avoid that, I always try to comprend the content, without memorising concepts.
Obviously there're stuff like maths formulas that require memorising, but that are exceptions.

I think, I have a good memory. When I`m studying, I usually try to assotiate things, I need to study, with something. For me it is the best way to remember things.

In my opinion the best way for remembering the information when you're studying
1) is to highlight the topics and the most important things with a yellow pen and so when you revise again before the exam it'll attract your attention
2) repeat the information you want to save in your mind many times loudly
3) do sport to feel more active and full of energy
4) take care of your health

In my point of view, the main thing in remembering some information is to use it practically. It works for any kind of knowledge. Whether you learn foreign language or IT you have to apply your theoretical knowledges in practical work. And as more you do it as better you remember new things. Just do it and you will notice great changes in your studying.

I don't have a good memory. To memorize theory, I always walk while learning and recites it loudly. Also, I keep on changing by place of study, this helps immensely. Association of words also helps sometimes.

In order to remember things when I am studying, I often use mind - maps as organizing and memorizing the lessons in my class. Not only does it work effectively but it also helps me remember the large amount of significant information for my exams. I highly recommend this method since it is apparently popular with students and is a good way to improve your memory.

I've got a really bed memory, but not all of the tips work good in my case. As for association method, I'm sure association words should be phonetically or lexically related with a thing we need to remember. For example a word caterpillar seems hard to learn until you can listen it's Russian "phonetical brother" "катер пилит" so you imagine a caterpillar that saws (cuts) a boat. Singing and teaching methods work in their best way for me. I use them more often.

Have you got a good memory? What do you do to help you remember things when you're studying?
No, actually I have not got a good memory, I think. So in order to improve it, I have to take certain steps such as writing down the primary content of my lessons, singing or teaching whatever it is that I want to remember. These ways really work for me so you also should try.

This audio material was not easy to understand it. Upper intermediate is not easy for me! But audio material is interesting and useful for application!
