Techniques to Learn Fast
By the way, there are some techniques to learn faster. Basically, there are four categories of subjects. The first category is understanding concepts. Subjects that’s need understanding.
The 2nd category is memorization, some subjects involve rote learning.
3rd one is languages either it is English, Hindi etc. and the last but not the least is Application-based subjects in which constant practice is required.
Let’s us know what are techniques that help you study, understand.
As we know many subjects like Physics and economic which require a deep understanding to grasp their concepts. The trick which can use for this type of subjects to learn fast is Feynmann Technique.
Feynmann was a Nobel prize-winning physicist who, while studying in his university, discovered a technique was like simply take a notebook and write down the topics which you want to study.
Then simply read them and write it on plain paper in your own language which you easy to understand or in which you’re comfortable.
Then whatever you wrote on plain paper, the next step you take would be explaining out in words, whatever you have written on plain paper and moreover you write how to learn faster and increase your growth.
The next steps you take would be explaining us in words, then say it out loud ensure a better understanding as compared to when you think quietly in your mind.
Now you’d explain imagining a person in front of you. In fact, you should imagine a five-year-old child standing in front of you. Your understanding should be enough to make a 5-year-old child understand.
Reading and understanding is a skill that you can practice even outside the preview of studies. You can even practice it in daily life.
This includes subjects like civics, history and biology etc. All the subjects are rote learning. Actually, In India, almost all subjects involve rote learning.
The 1st thing you need to understand in memory is that whatever our brains see or write. It can’t retain the written text very well. Now, what are the things that our brain can retain well?
1st is emotional things, the things that we are emotionally attached to, the things that make us angry or happy or scared. We can retain these things better.
2nd is the things that activate more than one of our senses. The more number of senses you activate, the better will be able to remember.
The involvement of senses can be done by imagination. There are some techniques for this one of the techniques is a memory palace.
Memory place is a trick which involves using real-life locations that you know of through which you create imaginary objects and create connections with the thing which you want to remember.
You can create a story about the places which you know very well. The story is of your choice it can be weird, funny or anything which you want to add.
Languages come from practice. It can be divided into four categories Reading, writing, listening and speaking. Language either be English, French, Hindi. It needs a lot of practice to learn it.
Communication is the for these types of subjects if you practice, you could easily do it. As we know Practice makes a man perfect.
Me also have practicing to write and learn for a better communicator. Duolingo is the best app for beginners.
4. Application Based Subjects
The last but not the least is application based subjects. It involve problem and question solving.
This type of subjects like Math or solving or reasoning question involve lots of practice to make comfortable for you.
Once you know the pattern then it is easy to solve question.
Ready-to-use Tips on How to Learn Faster
1. Full Awareness on Study
It is a simple and prime tip to learn faster because if you can’t have attention to your study then how you learn faster.
For example, if I am doing the subject of Physics and I am thinking about something during my study time.
So now I learn fast? or If I am studying with movie or Netflix. So obviously I can’t pay focus on two things. So Remove distractions study in the silent environment so that you give your full attention.
Pro Tip: Take short breaks in your study plan frequently. That your memory revise information which you have studied.
2. Take Enough Sleep
Sleeping is 10x important as we think so don’t ignore it. Especially if you want to learn and remember it for the long term. During sleep our brain revise what we learnt and making it long to term memory.
You must have a nap between study and test because what you learnt it convert into long term memory so that you easily remember it. Probable 7-8 hours of sleep is much important if you are a student.
As Sandeep Maheswari said
“Intelligence comes form Repetition”.Sandeep Maheswari
Repeating your study material in your mind helps us to learn faster and similarly it doesn’t so much time to convert long term memory.
For example: If you studied a topic today and you want to remember for long time than after 2 days you revise that topic again without procrastination.
As you have done the next step is again to pick that topic after one week. Similarly than after one month. So repetition helps to remember for a long time.
Got it! to you need become smart and intelligent while studying.
