1. MAKE PERSONALISED SENTENCES

  Create a sentence that really MEANS something to you, so that you will definitely remember it in the future. e.g. That Bruce Springsteen concert I saw in Spain in 2012 was incredible because even though it was raining hard all night, nobody cared. This sentence is linked to a strong memory and is therefore highly memorable.  

Which words do you remember more easily?

Do an A/B testing for yourself: A Group: Write 3 personalised 'real memory' sentences like the example above with 3 different adjectives from the list at the bottom of this page B Group: Try to remember 3 different adjectives form the list below without any personalised sentence. Come back 1 day later and see what you remember more easily. I'm positive that you will remember your sentences very easily.  

2. FORCE YOURSELF TO USE THE WORDS YOU ARE FOCUSSING ON

  The perfect language learner is brave and tries out new vocabulary and grammar that they have recently learnt... even if they are not sure that it is correct, or not. Imagine you are talking in your English class about a film, book or song that you like - USE one of the adjectives from the list below, instead of your usual 'go-to' adjective. Any English teacher can tell you this, but remember that you can also use these 'positive' adjectives in a negative way. e.g. I went out for pizza on Friday night with some friends. We had a fabulous time, but let's just say that the pizza wasn't exactly outstanding! Always look for opportunities to inject your new English into your conversation. If it's not quite correct, someone will help you get it right.
