A couple weeks ago I began a summer memorizing project (I know, it’s not summer yet).
When I decided to memorize, I started thinking about a system I could come up with to help me memorize.
Here’s the system:
Start by dividing whatever you’re memorizing into chunks of 30-60 words, (if it’s a Bible passage, simply use each verse as your divider).
- Read the section 20 times
- Try reciting it 10 times, you can look for reference at this point, just try not to read too much.
- When you can completely recite (no looking) five times in a row without mistake, you’ll know for sure you have it memorized.
- Now, gather all the sections that you’ve memorized so far and recite them all together.
That’s It! I have found this system to be super effective.
Feel free to change, add, or remove, to better suite you.
Why not give it a try, and tell me how it works for you?
Also, I’d love to hear what system you use when memorizing, comment and share your thoughts!
