Improve your Memory!

These tools help you remember people's names more effectively, improve your recall of information in exams, increase the speed with which you can learn vocabulary, and help you in situations where you need to remember detailed, structured information.

This section is split into three parts: first of all, the introduction explains the principles behind the use of memory techniques (also called "mnemonics").

We then discuss a range of individual tools that you can use to remember information. Finally we discuss how to use the skills in practice to remember peoples names, foreign language words, and information for exams.

Enjoy using the tools!
