    what is the best way to remember essays

    1. avatar image


      I'm on an Irish debating team and we have to learn speeches/essays off by heart. The best way to learn essays is to read through them 5 times try say them to yourself then if you feel confident enough to say it out to a brother/sister/parent and they will tell you where you need to focus on e.g the parts you are forgetting, hope this helps

      To understand every line in its English translation! Keep re-writing OR re-typing the essay and it might come to you (it does for me). Don't learn off whole essays! Learn off phrases (that are particularly tricky that you won't remember OR you cannot translate literally - which in general is most phrases)
