MNEMONICS – The Art of Memory - MONDAYS

Category: Written & Communications

You know what it’s like to forget someone’s name. Or you may have forgotten appointments, telephone numbers, speeches, punch-lines of jokes, directions, or best of all: your spouse’s birthday. You might feel like the man, dancing at the Amnesiacs’ Annual Ball, saying to the woman, ‘Do I come here often?’

If you feel enough is enough here is your chance to change that. In this course you can learn to jump-start your memory. You can learn how to remember numbers, numbers of any length; to memorise your shopping-list will become second nature to you, or for that matter any list.

Imagine: Speeches without cue-cards, making (and keeping) appointments without a diary or reducing exam stress by acquiring enormous amounts of information. How about learning 1000 French words within one week.

All this and much more will be dealt in the course “Mnemonics – The Art of Memory”.
