I’ve recently used Memory Palaces and I was amazed by the results. Now I’m looking for a way to apply them for language learning (learning Russian now). But there are some questions I still didn’t find answers for. Hopefully someone can help me out.
Context first. I’m an experienced language learner and I learn mostly through listening and reading + Anki. So I learn words as I find them and not by following any list or textbook.
My first question would be:
How would you go about adding new words to your memory palace as you go? (in opposition to memorizing a premade list) Does it interfer with old memories? Do you make new locations between the old ones?
Language vocab is something that scales to the thousands. How do you organize that? Do you create a palace with hundreds of sublocations or multiple palaces?
If it’s an alphabetical sequence, how would you do it considering I’m not following a premade list?
- Maybe unrelated, but how to create mnemonics for pronunciation when you can’t find a correlation with English (or my native language)?
Thanks in advance.
