Spoken Number Skipping Problem


(Tinh Bin Bin) #1

I have a problem on Spoken Numbering that when i try at 1,5sec per digit it’s okay but when i come down to 1sec per digit , journey and number skips began to occurs a lot. How do you prevent this? Please help me.

I think it’s very important to be able to go through your journeys quickly and to know your pictures for the numbers very well. Once you start training exclusively with 1 sec per digit (or even 0.8 sec), it will soon feel the same as with 1.5 sec. before. I think practice is the key here. Don’t get discouraged by mistakes. They might even help you find weak locations in your journey and weak pictures for numbers in your system. Once you know these weaknesses you can fight them.

You’re Awesome! Thank you very much ! I will keep practicing but i will slowly decreaase seconds and meanwhile increase digits. Also i have a practice plain : i am going to practice journey seperately which i begin with different journey points and ascociate as many as i can. And till i am not able to asociate more, i will stop and start a new one but continue journey. How do you think?

I haven’t practiced spoken numbers a lot, but when I was doing it I used my hand to keep track of the position. I would tap my hand on my leg palm down for the first digit, palm up for the next digit, and then keep alternating. It reduced the number of times the digits and journey would go out of sync.

If you didn’t see it yet, there is a practice page here:

Practicing the journeys seperately before you use them for memorizing is a good idea.

Good luck with your training! :slight_smile:

My plan is spend sometimes practice another subject or BLD Cubing but to re call the journey and re-asociate them. Because i feel like when i done tackle the BLD Cubing, Number seems more easy. How do you think?

I’m sorry, I don’t really understand what you mean. I know nothing about Cubing to be honest; I’ve never solved a rubik’s cube in my whole life. xD

Oh sorry. My vocab is in practice. but i mean use another subject to practice journey because i dont know why when i do that another subject, my result is not good as spk num but my journey is stablized.

And i think you should try cubing !! It’s very fun !!! You got to use your super memory to remember the algorithms. And for me the feeling of success in solving a puzzle is very enjoyable !!!

YES! That’s a great idea. I sometimes use my “Cards-journeys” for numbers on memory league, and suddenly I’m faster. It helps to use the journeys for something else every once in a while.

Maybe I will :slight_smile:
When I have time, I’ll try to learn the basics :smiley:

Thanks! And if you do try. Start with 3x3.
