i was once told this.. review 10 new words once an hour for a day. then review those same 10 words once a day for a week, and once a week for a month and once a month for a year. you will most likely not forget them after that.
also, if you do this constantly, you will reviewing new words at the same time.. each day you add 10 more words to your list.. although my vocabulary has over time, degenerated to a mere speck compared to what i knew while doing this, i still can remember that aprox 1000 words i did this practice with..
what two heads said.
= 31 Times
You are doing much less work than 100 times a day, you are spending less time, and you are remembering so much better.
Hmm sounds good I am going to try that with next weeks words.
I just have some questions for the both of you since it seems you guys did/or do this still.
1. You say that you study 10words a day for 8.
Do these hours have to be consecutive?
2. You say you can add on 10 a day.
Do these new word get mixed with the previous day ones?
If so then say you have your first day you have 10 words(you will do these for 7 days) but then you add the next day you add 10 more but then these would only have 6 days.
How do you keep track of your piles? Like I can imagine there will be maybe piles going at different times so what tips do you have for keeping track of the piles? Calling them pile a,b and then writing when they should be reviewed(this is more when it get into the months and year part)
Those are all I got for now. Maybe a sample walk through will help me understand all the details of how this would work
