I have to learn 150 wds of french off by heart...Watch this thread
Do it in chunks, read it through and say it, see how much you can say without looking then how much you can write until you're perfect, then add the next bit on etc etc. You'll be surprised how quickly you learn it
good luck for your exam. french was awesome
then write it out under exam conditions tomorrow, any ideas on the best technique to use?
Try and learn what the words mean more than memorising it. That way, if you do forget bits you'll know what it should mean and hopefully be able to write something that's correct, memorising quite often leads to spelling mistakes and bits missed out! Good luck!
Totaly agree with you here
I always find it better to understand what your writing, that way its not so crucial if you forget a bit, and you can create a bit of flare to your writing to!
Good luck with your exam tomorrow (yn)
"Unless we remember, we cannot understand" - also applies to foreign languages!!
The best way I found was to write it out from memory and every time I forgot what was next I'd look at my copy and note the first word of that sentence. 150 words isn't much so there was usually only about 4 times I'd forget what was next and then I'd just remember these 4 words as my 'cues'. I guess it worked because it was always the same bits that I forgot.
Good luck with it though
