if you find yourself learning a new language and ever asked yourself: “What’s the most effective strategy?”, well I have good news for you. You are not the only one
Cognitive psychologists already asked themself this question and did a lot of reasearch on it ( Yay )
So now we can learn their methods and boost our learning
I’m talking about “spaced repetition”, “active recalling” as well as “testing yourself”, these are all methods described in the book “Make It Stick, The Science of Successful Learning” written by two psychologists and a novelist.
Fun fact > chatterbug already implementet these methods in their system
In addition to this book (which is really great by the way ) you can watch a TedX talk from Chris Lonsdale, where he discribe how to learn any language in 6 months using, amongst other things, some of the methods described in the book.
I hope this is as useful and interesting for you as it is for me !
Feel free to recommend some books, videos etc. in the comments, I’m kind of into this topic
