Steal my memorization strategy

You don't have to be an avid hiker or a master naturalist to appreciate this.⁠ ⁠ But you do have to enjoy learning new things. I show you how to make it fun!

Learning your target language takes a lot of repetition and staying consistent with that repetition. While walking in the woods the other day, it occurred to me that the way I learn about new plants and wildlife is the same exact way I learned Spanish, French, and every other language I've studied. The only way I remember all the names of flora and fauna, just like I did with my target language vocab, is by constantly saying their names each time I see something I recognize. And the only way I remember tidbits about them is by constantly scrolling through my memory files for what I previously looked up about them. Then I use an app like iNaturalist, or for language, Google Translate, to check to see if I'm right.

If I'm wrong, no biggie. I self-correct and move on. I never stop until I've got it down pat. That means that I can say the correct name without any doubt and feel comfortable using that word or explaining it to others. Learning your target language takes this same exact strategy. It's all about constant repetition and staying consistent until you feel comfortable using what you've learned with others. You've got this! We have openings for your target language students this summer. And we're giving away lots of goodies to everyone who joins us this month. If you're interested, contact me!
