Hello Everyone! So I am new to this forum, and my first post.
Internet’s such a great tool. Yet another wonderful thing to learn and perhaps to help too!
So I’ve booked my GRE next month, I need to study a lot of vocab. I was using quizlet and mnemonic to remember words but I was easily forgetting them. A guy in our gre group told us that he was learnt 1600 words in a week. that’s pretty impressive. Although he’s using memory palace since years, so it was easy for him. But I thought its still a great thing to learn might be possible to increase my speed of learning words to maybe 100 to 200 words per week?
So I started searching a read a lot of new comers threads and people who wanted to learn vocabulary.
I came to conclusion that using GMMPS would be my best bet. I took notes.
To oversimplify I will imagine all the 6 places in my home
3 bedrooms, looby, kitchen, bathroom, balcony. and place them with more memories of
- games/ movies scenes. I have huge memory of gta san andreas so I’ll start with this
- friend’s houses
3)tv shows I remember
and for each word I’ll be placing it at some place inside the mini loci . for example 1st bedroom, tv= tv show, in which the show, I remember a castle I will place my first world say aberrant …a ant drunk on beer so it means deviating from normal. probably place a ant pic in my quizlet.
2nd word this story the king in the castle sad and miserable as he punished his son for what he didn’t do. I’ll use next word abject. abject rhymes with reject so miserable king (dashrat his name)
How is this interpretation and approach? is there any amends I have to do!
