Read more, remember more


Hej Skillshare people!

My name is Clara and I am designer and a very visual learner. I used to enjoy learning new stuff quite a bit.
However I have settled into an all-too-comfortable routine at work and by no longer challenging myself I feel like my brain has atrophied. I can read fairly fast, compared to my friends and colleagues, but often stuff just falls out of my head. I want to get back into the habit of learning.

current reading speed: 232 words per minute with a comprehension rate of 82% (in English, my native tongue is German)

  • By December 31st, 2015, I will be able to hold a 5 minute conversation in French and in Spanish on basic topics such as my work, where I live, and my hobbies, so that I can talk a little, when asked about my language skills - instead of making excuses why I never really got good at either.
    It will feel really good and make me confident, and I will remember my goal each time I think about taking the easy way out (!!!)

  • By October 1, 2015, I will be able to read 700 words per minute of a fiction book in my native language, with 70% or greater comprehension, so that I can keep up with the book consumption of my family and we can discuss books.

  • By December 1th, 2015, I will be able to memorize a string of 15 numbers forwards in under 2 minutes, so that I never forget my friend's phone numbers.
