Book Description

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.

Product Description


In this jam-packed resource, Anthony Metivier walks you through everything you could possibly need to know about how to learn and memorize German vocabulary. From basic preparation to simple exercises and detailed examples, this in-depth guide leaves no stone unturned. You will have your first dozen German vocabulary words memorized within minutes of reading this book and be speaking sophisticated phrases flawlessly within a few days. How to Learn and Memorize German Vocabulary makes it that simple.

From the Back Cover

The days of rote memorization for learning a new language are long gone ... or are they? Unfortunately, it's always been tempting for language learners to write new words hundreds of times with pen and paper. Or perhaps you've fanned index cards in front of your face for hours praying that repetition alone would permanently lodge the words in your mind.

Reality check: rote learning rarely works, certainly not with any lasting value.

With the system taught in How to Learn and Memorize German Vocabulary, however, learning, retaining and using German vocabulary words has been made incredibly easy and fun. With no prior memorization skills whatsoever, any reader of this book can memorize as much German vocabulary as they want. A simple set of techniques makes the memorization process - which most people find painfully frustrating - a complete breeze for even those who are convinced that they have a bad memory.

2.0 out of 5 stars Time investment required 1 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Here's the thing for me: The time taken to read the book, practice all the exercises and gain a valuable benefit was just too significant a time investment for me, I could have learned an awful lot of German in the traditional way, instead of reading this and trying all the techniques.

It may work for some, the author obviously has a perfected system. but it didn't work for me. Maybe I will revisit it in a few months.

2.0 out of 5 stars using a memory system 1 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is not for me. I have tried over and over to manage this system for my needs but am struggling. I feel there is more effort going into finding not only areas to store your words but to associate actions and stories to help you remember is actually confusing. I can understand that it might work for some. And there is proof of success with others. I think I have developed my own way already by remembering by association with difficult words, names, faces and have done so for many years, my own system adapted to me - but I have given up on this idea of Memory palaces.

I have to say however there is continuing support from the writer who is also an expert on this system, who continually encourages you to keep trying and takes on board others comments etc who are having more success than me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Confusion 13 Nov. 2013
By Sapper
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read it through several times and still don't understand his system . At no time did he show a filled in sample page layout . On the other hand he presented page after page of self congratulations and advertising his books. I found learning a language through story telling with English translations far superior.

1.0 out of 5 stars waste of time 25 Sept. 2013
By jarred
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I agree with Brian Chambers. Not at all what it makes out to be. Just a short text on memory training and not very specific to German. The method is actually very intimidating and not attractive to people who are trying desperately to learn the language. A bit of a con. Quite cheap, so I guess a lot of folk have just downloaded it to see, but a bit of a devious way for the author to gain financial bliss.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short but incredibly useful 25 Sept. 2012
By southcoastreviewer VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Note the size of this Kindle book - 52 pages. But in that pages is a good condensed amount of information, whether you are familiar with the concept of memory palaces or not.

The author first explains the concept of memory palaces and their common use. He then goes to explain the methods for memorisation using a very common example - the deck of cards.

Once the reader is familiar with this, he then goes on to detail a memory palace for use with language vocabulary learning - not just for German either, this is clearly transferable knowledge.

If you're already familiar with the memory palace concept and use, then this book may not tell you anything you don't already know. But it is a useful little addition to have in your language learning quiver, that is certain.

Learn a language by memorizing its dictionary. Useless.

The only things I learnt was about the author and various adverts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed 12 May 2013
By Jane
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a book about memory palaces and how to apply that to languages and this was suggested in the Amazon search. Perfect. Most other memory themed books give only a passing mention to languages so it was refreshing to find a book with such a specific aim. While this is a short book it is packed full of memory techniques beginning with more general ideas and and gradually focusing in on the specific method. I wanted a way to help me take in large quantities of vocabulary and have fun doing it. You have to put some effort in so that the methods become second nature but it is well worth it. Thank you Anthony Metivier and to those of you who choose to use the techniques, good luck!
