So, I’ve been looking around the forum and I can’t seem to find a concrete answer…
Do you think using the method of loci is necessary to successfully retain large amounts of vocab?
Or can one do just as well learning the vocab through mnemonics and anki?
Btw, I plan on memorising over 10 000 words within the next month. Yes, I do think its possible. My only problem is that I keep doubting whether or not I should use loci. Having to prepare 10 000 loci…is a pain to say the least. Its tiring, but I will do it if it is, indeed, necessary.
Thanks for reading
No matter how much of a pain it is to make, I still feel that using memory palaces is the best way to go. Mnemonics is good but I don’t think that its enough to use by itself.
I guess I’ve become comfortable using them in conjunction to learn my characters, as I’ve memorised just under 2000 within 2 months as a total beginner. But using memory palaces means that my pace will be slowed down…but hopefully since I “know” about 3000 words in my target language already, the first few stages should go without a hitch.
