    Depends how you learn it - are you someone who memorises it word for word for the sake of speedy translation in the exam or goes through it for key grammar and content points and translates it on the spot in the exam.

    I think I lean more towards the speedy translation way, but generally try to learn content points at the same time. Thank you for replying!!!!!

    I tend towards the speedy translation way too. For learning it word for word, hands down the way that works best for me is recording myself reciting as much as I can remember, adding more each time, then comparing the recording with the text and repeating until I get it perfect. I initially do this in short sections, then go over them and combine them.

    Yes - it takes a little while to get used to as a technique but I've found it to be incredibly effective.
