I’ve been looking at a few methods such as Lanier’s and Lynne Kelly’s for verbatim or near verbatim memorization. My goal is to remember a lot of material at a reasonable (faster than rote) speed, remember it for a long time, and recall it at recital-speed (while I’m hiking). Is anyone using these techniques, or others, and finding their recitation speeds unimpeded?
I understand that the rote learners have an advantage here (they learn by reciting after all) but the read, look away, recite, repeat method is a bit underpowered for my needs. (If I’m wrong, please advise)
Are you using other techniques? Mixing techniques? How do they fare in terms of accuracy, recital speed, and memorization time?
