New member, Thari, Dubai-UAE

Hi everyone,

My name in Thari and I’m 37 years old. Originally from Sri Lanka but living in Dubai for the past 12 years. Currently working for FedEx as a Solutions Specialist.

The Netflix memory games lead me to “Art Of Memory”. I have always told myself and people around me that I have a kind of a weak memory and to be true to my statement, memory is not one of my strengths. So I want to start somewhere. Hope I’m at the right place! :slight_smile: I have gone through firt few chapters of your e-book and started couple techniques. I’m impressed of myself that I managed to do the first few activities. :smiley:

The first thing I want to achieve is improving my vocabulary. I want to learn at least 5 new words (Though 5 would be a manageable number in the beginning) everyday with its meaning and spellings. Would you be able to give few tips for me to start? Then I’m planning to advance from there. Thank you so much and this will change my life.


Welcome to the site! :slight_smile:

If you haven’t seen it yet, there is a how to learn memory techniques page that has a free ebook with some tips. Here are a few discussions about memorizing vocabulary:


The most important thing with vocabulary is to use the words. Write or say sentences that use the new vocab.

Like a sport. It helps to read a book that explains the moves but that’s not much use until you go out and practice.

The other is to read good literature. It rubs off on you. People who read a lot have significantly higher vocabularies and generally are better writers and communicators.


Thank you very much Josh. :slight_smile:

Thank you very much for your feedback.

Nice to see a fellow Sri Lankan in the forum! I’m a newbie too. :stuck_out_tongue:
