Efficient learning


Repeat new words out loud.
– In your logbook, write down the words that seem important, or that you want to memorise.
Tie the words you learn to a context, write them down in sentences; give yourself examples.
Link new words to words you already know.
– In order to remember the words you have learned over time, it is crucial to go over them regularly.
Practice guessing the meaning of new words: words that are similar to those in your mother tongue, or in another language, for example.
Pretend you’re in situ: say the sentences out loud that are liable to be useful in a given situation.


Practice using the rules of grammar: if you’ve learned a verb conjugation by heart, make up sentences with this verb that can be used in real life situations.
Compare this with how it works in your own language or a foreign language; the differences and similarities can help you remember the topic you’ve been studying.
