Practice Makes Perfect

  1. 1. Practicing Congratulations, you’re making great progress. I’m sure you’ve memorized most of the images associated with the numbers thus far.
  2. 2. Practicing Some of you may still be having trouble with instant recall, but that’s normal. The important thing is that at this point you’ve long ago mastered the art of translating numbers into words/images. Right?
  3. 3. Practicing It’s kind of like learning to read. You’re probably very good at “sounding out” the images based on the numbers you see. But just as you can understand all of the words written on this page without having to sound them out – you recognize nearly every word here at first glance, I’m sure – you can get to the point where numbers become images INSTANTLY in your head. How?
  4. 4. Practicing Why practice, of course!
  5. 5. Practicing Practice makes perfect, it’s been said. So how do you practice number imagery outside of Memrise?
  6. 6. Practicing Just count. That’s all. I’m sure you do it more times during the day than you realize. So now whenever you count, instead of counting numbers (or sheep if you’re an insomniac) count with images. No more 1,2,3,4,5… Think ale,hen,ham,ear,hive No more 5,10,15 Think hive,Lisa,laugh
  7. 7. Practicing You also read numbers all the time. Replace them with images. I’m running late! It’s 9:25! Look at the clock and say, it’s Goo, knife. It may sound silly, but it’s a great way to familiarize yourself with the images until you no longer have to THINK about them. They’ll just be in your head.
  8. 8. Practicing What’s the score in that hockey match? Whore: Hen You’re playing a game with someone, use the images to keep score. Chances are you won’t lose count as easily.
  9. 9. Practicing Just use it everywhere you go!
