Rewriting little memory
« on: January 27, 2015, 06:09:54 AM »
As everyone in this forum knows i have a little memory and a tiny heart.
But i need to memorize like a giant.
One method i can use is repeat phrases writing down one time and again, interacting with the software when one single letter don't correspond.
Better is count my errors.


Do you know any software to do this ?
Best Regards

Dear ol' Contro,
English is certainly not your first language, but this time we need a lot more info to work with!

Try re-posting this again with a bunch of more lines, and we might be able to latch on to something to help with!

Running to try

Suppose you want to memorize

Contro is the worst pupil in the world


So i began to write down that phrase one time and more.
Writing until I memorize


But in a software able to detect is one single letter is missing

First example :

Contre

The software tells me the e is incorrect

So I try

Contra

and the program continues telling me the word is not correct

Contro
and the program no warnings

I continue writing the phrase

Contro is the v.....orst pupil in the .....

When i write the letter v the program warn me is incorrect.

So i have to keep trying until i discover the correct phrase.


best Regards

Okay, we are getting there!

I think a bunch of stuff is involved here!

First, try a little (luv how this word is almost impossible) mnemonics.

"Contro is the worst pupil in the world"
No. Contro is spelled with two o's and nothing else will do.
He spelled pupil right and who does that in their second/third language?

And stuff.

So with a few of those tricks out of the way, "what are you trying to do?"
If you're "just learning a language" we can do that in a couple other threads. We're trying to work out that you don't need more serious tech help.

I'm a funny dumb birdie. My language skills are incredible but my tech makes you want to cry in four languages including two you don't know yet!

http://www.google.co...ards+memory+training -> maybe have a look at the adverts as well

The important word here is "flashcards"

I know programs like ANKI

I have solved the problem with memoriser and windows 7, but I need long phrases.

I memorize better repeating writing of a phrase.


I don't remember is ANKI - a leitner family program - is able to produce quizzes with writing down the answer to complete a line.
I use some time ago another great flashback program .

Let me see in my database...

Memory Lifter is a good one i remember and anki also.

are SRS space repetition system


Do you know any similar to memoriser ?

But I need able to enter twice the phrase to repeat.

I have found a flashcard program for this

only memoriser
and is out of development

I've been using Q-FlashCards for over a year. I find it very useful.

I think Anki is too difficult.

Besides:

Quote from: Anki
To learn properly, you need textbooks, teachers, or exposure to real-world sentences
-but:

Quote from: SuperMemo
You do not learn, if you do not understand.

Maybe video will be better for you:

Perhaps is too difficult
The addon for anki don't exists
and the ability to control each key denote the phrase must be not very long
So memoriser is the adequate to memorize short phrases or words, or numbers.
But not entire phrases o papers (roles)

What about line memorization software (rehearsal...)
