Hello, welcome to this video in which I answer to a question from a member of the Fast French Learning community.
What is the best way to remember French?
This member talks about the articles I publish every week on the blog.
The best way to remember French: here are 3 important points!
1 - To have FUN
Among the articles on the blog, it is important to choose an article that deals with a subject you like, that you enjoy learning. This activates the brain areas of pleasure so you feel more like learning, you retain the information better, learning is much more effective.
2 - REPETITION
The best way to remember French lessons is to
- Read them at least once a day (twice a day if you can)
- Every day for several days in a row (say 5 days). I suggest you do it 5 days in a row and then see if you need to adapt (I mean study it 3-4 or 6-7 days in a row).
- Between 5 and 15 minutes/day.
There is no learning without repetition!
3 - WRITING
Be active in your learning of French. Write down the sentences that are the most difficult for you to learn. Writing is a very effective way to memorize because the brain has to make more neural connections than if you don't write.
If you have any questions, let them in the comment down below!
Thomas, your French teacher 😀
Thomas Ricomard specializes in teaching French as a foreign language. He has been providing private lessons since 2015, both in-person and online (via Skype). He taught at the Popular University of the Canton of Geneva (Switzerland) from 2015 to 2018, instructing several groups of 20 students from around the world (United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Spain, Brazil, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mexico, etc.), ranging from beginner to intermediate levels (A1 to B2). With a Master’s degree in clinical and cognitive psychology from the University of Geneva, his knowledge of psychology allows him to tailor his teaching methods for optimal learning, taking into account factors such as visual memory versus auditory memory. He expresses his passion for the French language through writing texts, including poetry and songs, which he presents publicly at numerous music and slam events.
