How to Remember: Use Your Brain's Innate Powers to Memorize Without Repetition
If you're like most people, you probably think that memorizing things is boring, repetitive effort. And it is, unless you use your brain in the way that it works naturally. Then it becomes imagination-fueled fun!
The surprising fact is that is that your normal, everyday memory is already capable of extraordinary feats. The difference between you and the person who memorized the entire Oxford English Dictionary, or the one who recited pi to 80,000 places, is that they know some simple techniques that you can learn too.

In this class we'll use image association to memorize two dozen vocabulary words in a foreign language. We'll then expand on the technique to memorize the names of class participants. (Have trouble remembering peoples' names? You won't after this.) Time permitting, we'll explore the Major System, which will enable you to memorize sequences of numbers.
