Kurzbeschreibung

How to Learn and Memorize German Vocabulary ... Using a Memory Palace Specifically Designed for the German Language

If you've ever wanted to improve your ability to learn and memorize German vocabulary by 100% ... 200% ... 300% (or more) using simple skills you can learn in under an hour (or less), then this may be the most important book you will ever read.

Believe it or not, it doesn't matter if you have a good memory or not.

The information in this book will teach you:

* Why memory techniques are like a bicycle everyone can ride (with some minor personal adjustments).

* The real reason why no one should ever be squeamish about memorization or learning a language.

* Why and how some of the most famous memory skills are applicable to learning any language, especially German.

* How to create a 26 “letter location” memory system based on the alphabet English speakers share with the Germans.

* Sample examples that will show you exactly how and why these memory techniques and strategies work.

* Unique approaches that will have you literally “tuning in” on the German language so that you can memorize its vocabulary and recall it with ease.

* How to use actors, other public figures and famous pieces of artwork to help you memorize German vocabulary.

* How to separate German words in the most effective manner for memorization and recall.

* A simple strategy for memorizing the male, neuter and feminine genders (a process that some people consider the ultimate nightmare of language learning.)

* A list of resources, including the secret to finding the absolute best dictionary to use when learning and memorizing German vocabulary.

* How having a larger vocabulary will fill your travel in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) with greater freedom to explore and enjoy the sights and culture.

* ... and much, much more!


These techniques have been used by real language learners, most of whom previously considered themselves owners of a “bad memory” to make real strides in acquiring German.

Don’t worry! None of these techniques are rocket science.

Frankly, if you can memorize a short email address or the name of a movie, then you can use this system to memorize a language as rich and diverse as German.

Plus, everything you’ll learn in this book applies to every other language that shares the same alphabet with English. And with a little imagination, the ideas are easily transferable to other alphabet systems.

But there’s really no time to lose.

Every day that you are not using this simple vocabulary memorization system, you are literally stealing from yourself the joy of reading, speaking and knowing German as you easily expand the natural abilities of your mind.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very useful 1. März 2013
Von Steffi
Format:Kindle Edition
After having a very hard time in my German class, I found this book. It took only a while to set up for this method, but once done, I have been memorizing words even faster than I thought possible. Just like the book promises. And the more I do the additional exercises, the more I pick up speed. I highly recommend this book to anyone.

Das Thema finde ich interessant, aber habe wenig neue Sachen dabei gefunden. Ich kann nur das Buch empfehlen, wenn Sie nichts über Mnemotechnik kennen.

2.0 von 5 Sternen too convoluted 26. Dezember 2012
Von Lyn Alexander - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Okay, call me stupid. I am mystified by a method where I create, in my memory, twenty-six mental locations alphabetized a-z, each location (or `palace') to contain many `rooms', where I store words. THEN, having created all these `palaces', to recall for each `room' some exciting or hilarious memory from my life which I may use for creating a link to each new word in the German language. Then to memorize the dictionary.
For me, it is beyond clutter. I can't even remember 26 alphabetized locations, never mind the rooms where each word belongs.

The word `abbiegen', okay, that goes where? Into palace `A', the house where I lived as a kid. Where should I put `abbiegen'? Well, it means `to turn off', so do I put it in the kitchen and `turn off the tap'? No, that's not the meaning of THIS turn off. I should put it in the hallway, I guess, where the hall turns the corner from the front room to the kitchen. Oops, this particular `palace', the house where I lived as a kid, didn't have a hallway. Matter of fact, I don't quite remember the layout of that house.

Though I shall probably now remember `abbiegen' forever.

Lightbulb moment. I'll continue to try this. If it works out, I'll change the stars.

It is two days later. I changed the stars. The method is not less convoluted, but I have discovered that the physical presence in my mind of a building with many rooms actually does work. For me, it is hard work. The visualisation is sometimes a real chore. But here's the magic. Once you've done all that work, the word is there. It's right there, exactly where you put it; and it comes when called.
According to Anthony Metivier, the work does get easier and more automatic, until it becomes second nature. The secret for success is in developing a personal technique for establishing those 26 'palaces' to start with.
Good luck
Almost two years later --
I gave up on this method of learning a foreign language. My mind is simply not large enough to hold all those 'rooms' to find little words. It is easier just to learn the words and to use them constantly until they are implanted in the brain.

1.0 von 5 Sternen a waste of time and money 19. Februar 2013
Von Language-learner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book because I am fascinated by the memory palace/loci system, and I wanted to have a tailor-made book for a specific language (German), and the reviews on amazon for the book sounded promising.

However, Metivier's system has a number of fundamental problems, the most important of which is the following:
The language-learner is to remember a series of locations, with each location attached by visualisation to a German word, as well as to the English translation. But the memorisation of the location is completely superfluous, as it only relates to the order in which one learnt the German word --i.e. a chronology that follows the dictionary--, even though this is completely unnecessary. All that matters is the German word and the English translation, and this can be done simply using what is called the Keyword Mnemonic.

The book called "Your Memory", written by Higbee, gives a summary of research into mnemonic techniques, including an honest appraisal of the limitations and strengths of the various systems (with an entire chapter devoted to the memory palace/loci system). The Memory Palace method is a very powerful method to learn lists, etc. but to learn vocabulary the Keyword Method is ideal.

4.0 von 5 Sternen First Time I've Seen A Memory Palace For Vocabulary 1. Oktober 2012
Von Jack - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I've used the memory palace idea for other things, but this is the first time I've seen it applied to learning vocabulary for a foreign language. This book lays out a whole system with absolutely tons of examples to get you used to it. Anthony Metivier literally takes you part-way through the dictionary and shows you step-by-step how to memorize each word he comes to. You could easily apply his system to any other language as well.

The only criticism I had is that I would have liked the resource section to be a little more fleshed out and have links, but I'm sure this could be fixed in a future edition.

Overall, I'm really impressed and I definitely recommend adding this to your arsenal if you're serious about learning German.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Memorizing Method for Anything 31. Oktober 2012
Von Trevallion - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was so much more than I expected. I knew I needed to buy the book, but I put it off for days because the thought of memorizing German vocabulary is just so boring and for me an unpleasant necessity. My first surprise was the author has an engaging and interesting writing style that immediately took the "boring" out of the book. I actually enjoyed just reading what he had to say.

The real surprise was his explanation of how to memorize German vocabulary. Wow! This is not just a method for memorizing German. This is a secret key to memorizing anything! It was so exciting to learn his method I actually forgot it was supposed to be about memorizing German. My mind was racing with all the greater and varied possibilities. If the author made one mistake it was misnaming his book. Not too many people are going to want to buy a book on memorizing German vocabulary- only the poor souls like me that have no choice. But if he entitled his book, "The Secret Key to Memorizing Anything", he would probably sell a million copies. Market it to the Blackjack crowd as a way to beat the house and the author will be hailed from coast to coast as a hero.

It's funny now in retrospect. A book I put off getting because of perceived drudgery, has instead revealed itself to be a book I simply cannot do without. This book is worth ten times the price and more.

5.0 von 5 Sternen IGNORE THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS - It works! 18. November 2013
Von A. Markham - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I used this book to learn more Arrernte vocabulary - even though it's aimed at people learning German. Arrernte is Australian Aboriginal language that is TOTALLY unlike any European language, so I would argue that if the method is going to fail, then it will fail with a language like Arrernte. I should also add that I read this book in conjunction with doing the author's online course, as I find I learn by reading, thinking and doing much easier than watching or listening to lectures, greatly benefited from the book.

First up, it should be stated that this technique is not for lazy people or those who want a ‘quick fix’. It involves creating complex mental imagery and higher-level cognitive processing, which is in fact why you’re able to recall the words and their meanings as you walk through your mental journey.

The system can be summarised in these steps:

• Imagine a place that starts with a letter of the alphabet in the language you’re learning (places like shopping centres and university campuses or highways worked best for me) – this is the ‘palace’
• Identify 10 words starting with this letter that you wish to remember
• Within your place (let’s use a the Stuart Highway, going north, from Port Augusta in South Australia), identify 10 ‘stations’ or locations along the way – take great care NOT to get into a dead end, though.
• Create mnemonic images (the more outrageous the better) to help you recall your words (i.e. to remember the word for Victoria Wattle in Arrernte –arlepe (pronounced ‘a leper’) I imagined lots of lepers running naked through this prickly wattle!)
• Place each image at a location within the palace
• Rinse and repeat for each letter of the alphabet in your target language.

I followed and actually DID what the author suggested, using his downloadable sample worksheets – and in 10 days was able to remember an additional 200 words in a language that is considered one of the most difficult for English speakers to learn. I can't tell you how thrilled I am with this!

The ONLY secret to being able to use this system is that you actually need to do the work to implement it.

I won't lie: it's a lot of work to set up the memory palaces in the beginning – you will need to allow yourself between 1-5 hours to do this. Then you need to create at least 10 stations in each palace, then add your words and create your images. In reading a number of the negative reviews here, I get the impression that they were commenting on Metivier’s writing style rather than any attempt to actually implement the system – so it’s grossly unfair to critique a system when you haven’t even tried to use it.

The complexity of the Magnetic Memory Palace System can be daunting initially, so I accept some people won’t have the patience to implement, however for those who do, I suspect that you will AMAZE yourself with what your mind is capable of learning.
