"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

How To Remember 90% Of Everything You Learn

How To Remember 90% Of Everything You Learn
The development of the Learning Pyramid in the 1960’s — widely attributed to the NTL Institute in Bethel, Maine— outlined how humans learn.
As research shows, it turns out that humans remember:
5% of what they learn when they’ve learned from a lecture (i.e. university/college lectures)
10% of what they learn when they’ve learned from reading (i.e. books, articles)
20% of what they learn from audio-visual (i.e. apps, videos)
30% of what they learn when they see a demonstration
50% of what they learn when engaged in a group discussion.
75% of what they learn when they practice what they learned.
90% of what they learn when they use immediately (or teach others)
How do you think?

    I think this is based to many studies.We have to teach what we learn to rembers them 'it's the best way for us about learning English.

    I agree with you @mouna teaching is the best way to remember all of what you have learned.

    Teaching what you have learned is definitely a very effective way to remember things. I have often had to be one step ahead of students when teaching them something new, that I wasn't familiar with.

    I think the age of the student is very important!!!

    I don't always have the option to do lots of the things that are written above.
    what I do find very helpful to me is listening with lots of repetitions. whenever I have spare time I listen over and over to the same podcast. that way the new words stick to my mind. I pick up presses and grammar usage and learn English like babies do.

    I think we need to use the complete methods of learness, coupling all levels of the pyramid using all of the skills.

    for me its good to read loudly every sentences. while your eyes focus on the words you read, ears focus on what you had to say and its generate your brain to process the sentences.
