Practice English Speaking&Listening with: The Feynman Technique

Difficulty: 0

Feynman learning technique is effective full learning something new

deepen your understanding of what you already know

or helping you study for an exam

the first step is to pick a topic you want to understand and start studying it.

once you know what it is about take a piece of paper and write about it

as if you're teaching the idea to someone else

ideally write and speak at the same time just as a teacher does it at the blackboard

this makes you realize which part you understand and where you still have gaps

whenever you get stuck go back to study and repeat that process until you have

explained the whole topic from start to end

when you're done repeat the process from the beginning but this time simplify your language or

use a graphic analogy to make a point

if your explanation ends up wordy or confusing

you probably have not understood it well enough so you should start again

thinking about an idea by explaining it makes this learning method very effective

once you can explain an idea in simple language you have deeply understood it

and will remember it for a long time

Richard Feynman was a leading theoretical physicist who received a

Nobel Prize for his work in quantum electrodynamics

he was notorious for asking his fellow mathematicians to explain concepts in simple language

to test their understanding
