Permanent learning frees up working memory


The WordDive method is based on learning things permanently for two reasons:

  • Learning the pronunciation, spelling and vocabulary permanently frees your working memory to concentrate on what you want to say.
  • It is more useful to learn things permanently once than going back to study them repeatedly over the years.

When you don't know things permanently, your working memory is struggling with vocabulary, pronunciation, spelling, meanings and conjugations. You feel unsure and your brain may be burdened even more by the thoughts of how you should have paid more attention at school. You feel left out in quickly changing situations and only catch the thread of conversations afterwards.

Permanent learning frees your working memory to handle matters on a higher level. You can think of what kind of sentence structure to use or what style would be best for the current conversation.

You can figure out unfamiliar words from the context or ask what they mean and understand the answer.

Your brain is working directly in the new language, you feel relaxed and enjoy the situation. You are at your best and your language skills are excellent.

Because it frees your working memory, WordDive practice improves your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in leaps and bounds.

Permanent learning happens by repeating study items just a bit more after you already know them. This forms a deep memory imprint that will last for years. WordDive optimizes the repetition individually for you, so all you need to do is relax and enjoy learning.
