Transcripts

1. Intro: Let's get to the point. Do you find it hard and overwhelming when it comes to memorizing vocabulary? Do you have a deep passion or desire to learn the meaning of new words? Or somehow you're able to remember them for a day or two, but can't remember it forever. If all this sounds familiar, then this is the class for you. In this class, you're going to see what it actually takes to memorize vocabulary and what you're gonna do so that you get, remember these words forever. I'll see you inside. 2. Clear and empty your mind: Okay, so what is the first step? The first step is to clear and empty your mind, which means you need to wipe out your mind out of any doubt or negativity. So if you're having any kind of negative thoughts or doubts about yourself, who whenever it comes to this vocabulary thing, then you need to tell yourself, It's okay. It's fine. It seems a daunting task, but no problem. I'll make it. Some a point is you need to have that positive attitude so that you can dive into the learning journey without any mind chatter and with an open and clear mind. So first make your mind like an empty bottle and get ready. 3. Getting comfortable with words: Now what is the second step? Second step is being comfortable with all birds. Or you can say being comfortable with any kind of word. And to illustrate this, I want you to have a look at these words. Now suppose you have to memorize the meaning of these words. And if you're a beginner to memorizing vocabulary, you may find that the words on the left side look simple and short. And you may feel positive and confident in memorizing these words because they seem very easy to memorize. But at the same time, the verge on the right side may seem difficult. And you might not feel that much confident as you may feel with the version, the left side. So if you really want to memorize the meaning of any word, then it's really important that you feel comfortable with any kind of word, no matter how long or difficult they might look. So just relax and say to yourself that I'm comfortable with all words. 4. How our mind thinks: Now let's see how our mind things. For this. I'll give you a quick task. I'll say a word and you have to pay attention to that word as soon as you hear it. Ready. Carrot. Okay. So did you notice something when you heard the word cat it you thought of garrett, isn't it? Let's try that again with another word. Ready? Loin. So see, again, as soon as you heard the bird loin, you thought of an actual loin. So what does this tell us? This tells us our mind thinks in images, not inverse or numbers. Because when you heard the word carrot, you thought of an actual image of carrot, not the word carried. In the same way. When you heard the word loin, you thought of an actual image of loin nor the word loin. So we see that our mind thinks in images and visuals. And let me tell you one special feature of our mind. Our mind can remember images in which feels more than text and numbers. And to understand that better, let's take an example of a movie. Almost everyone watch movies. So you must have seen one. So you can take your favorite movie as an example or any other movie that you like. But here we'll take the movie Titanic as it's quite popular. Now, most of us solids movie along time ago as it was released before 2000. Now when we think of this movie today, remember the images and visuals like how to actor and actress logged in the movie. We remember how big was the ship. We even remember how the ship sank. We remember all the visuals, but don't remember the details. Like what were the names of crew or numeric details like how many passengers were dead in the ship. Another great example is your own house. You know how your house looks. You know, where are the stairs? If someone asked you what's the color of your room, then you would able to tell them correctly, even if you're sitting in your friend's house in another country. But if someone asked you, what's the width and height of your room, then you might not remember it even if you knew. Because we know our mind, think in images, not in text or numbers. So when we listen to these tiny details like name, height, with how tall a person is, how much a person weighs. We don't intentionally create images in our mind of these tiny details. But for other details like color of room or which side your bed is positioned in your room. Our mind automatically create images, hence, we remember them for a very long time, even forever. So that's what interesting about our mind and how images can help us remember something for a long time, even forever. If you are too familiar with something and you guessed right, will be taking the help of images to remember the meaning of new words. 5. Create & Connect Images: So how do we actually memorize the meaning of words? For that, what you have to do, we have to connect the meaning of the word with an image and you pick the image by creating it in your mind. You can also pick any image that you remember from the past. Now, there's one thing that I want you to remember when creating images. It doesn't matter what kind of image create in your mind. You can create or choose any type of image. Even if the image looks so stupid that it makes you laugh inside whenever you think of it. All that matters is that the image that you pick should correspond with the meaning of the word. And at the same time, it should also correspond with the word. Now why is that important? And this is important because it helps in building a strong relation between the word, its meaning, and the image. Now what happens when you learn the meaning of the words by connecting them with images? When you learn the meaning of words by connecting images, then whenever you come across that particular word in future, your mind automatically thinks of that particular image. Enhance. You instantly remember the meaning of the word. All right, enough of the theory. Let's do this practically. 6. Example 1: So now it's finally time to put everything in action. So let's take a word, dirt. The meaning of this word is lack of something or insufficient in quantity. So now we have to choose an image for this word. So how about if we imagine a deer that has Lakoff Earth inside his stomach? Now, this sounds and looks stupid, but remember, the image that we choose doesn't have to look perfect. We just need any kind of image that can correspond to the meaning and the word itself. So here we see the image corresponds to the meaning because this image is showing lack of Earth inside deers stomach. And at the same time, it also corresponds with the word itself. Because if we break down this word, we have the letter D and the word earth. So from Letter D, we can remember the image of DEA. And from the word Earth, we can remember the Earth inside this deers stomach. So you see, that's how we choose image for the word that we have to memorize. Now, this is just an example. You can choose any kind of image that you like as long as it corresponds with the meaning and the word itself. And again, you don't have to worry about finding the perfect image. 7. Example 2: Another example of word is the word garrulous. Garrulous means excessively talkative, or a person who talks a lot. So we need to choose an image for this word. So how about if we imagine a gorilla that talks a lot? So let's see how this image corresponds to the meaning and the word itself. So here we see an image of gorilla who talks a lot. So that's how this word corresponds to the meaning. And if you look at the word garrulous, and if you look at this part of the gorillas, which you can call as Garr. So from Garr, we can remember gorilla. So that's how this image corresponds to the word also. 8. Final Words: Congratulations on completing this class.
