    Go sentence by sentence. It's hardcore. Memorize the first. Repeat it without looking. Then progress to the next. Repeat 1 + 2. Get it wrong? Keep going back until you can do both flawlessly.

    It's very tedious but it works for almost everyone

    I'm guessing you mean writing and speaking.

    I just did mine last week, and I just read the first sentence and kept repeating in my head for a minute or so. Then I read the second sentence and did the same. I then read both together in my head and kept building on that. If it's a long sentence split it into chunks. Take a lot of breaks in between each one so your memory is working its hardest.

    Once I'd learnt a fair bit I recorded myself doing it and played it back to myself while doing normal things like walking to school and even before bed - it became a sort of lifestyle

    Good luck!!

    Memory techniques are great for this.

    Lately, for example, I've been memorizing Pimsleur dialogs in Chinese Mandarin.

    Basically, I create a Memory Palace and then use weird and strange images that link up between the sounds and meanings of the words. Then I just mentally move around the Memory Palace to decode the images, which brings back the sound and meanings of the phrases. After that, it's just a bit of repetition along with speaking, reading, writing and listening to the language on a daily basis. With that, everything starts to fall into place.
