  1. Memorizing and repeating verses is one of the most effective methods of training a whole bunch of super-skills at once: memory, visualization and imaginative thinking, diction and speech, public speaking skills, breathing training, body control, facial expressions and gestures, vocabulary expansion.

    In itself, the process of repeating verses is very exciting. Practice in front of the mirror, record yourself on video. Evaluate and correct yourself. Repetition and regular practice produce incredible results at any age.

    If you learn 1 verse every day + repeat the previous ones, then noticeable results will be in a month. You'll notice them for yourself. Just compare the recording of your speech “was” and “became”. And the time for memorizing will be reduced.

    Interesting question “How to teach?”. Here you can use images, associations, and mnemonic techniques.

    Choose good poems!

    With respect,


  2. In general, the art of memorizing is closely related to the work of the brain. The way it works, it makes it easier for us to remember space and directions, as well as crazy associations.

    Hence the method of the “palace of memory” (well, or the halls of the mind). In scientific terms, the locus method.

    In order not to expand the answer to a huge sheet of text, I will send it to Wikipedia. There it is quite well described.

  3. Memorizing a poem every day is a good warm-up. This creates new neural connections and increases the overall ability to learn. It is important to understand that this does not mean mindless “memorizing”, but, first of all, understanding the meaning of what is being remembered.

    This technique has different effects on the brain of a child and an adult. For preschoolers, memorizing poems allows them to activate thinking, create imaginative representations – first objects, then actions and phenomena, concrete and abstract quantities, and ultimately this leads to the development of visual-figurative and logical thinking. Memory and attention act as intermediaries — they are involved in the process, thanks to them, the development of thinking takes place, so they inevitably train.

    For an adult, poems help build new neural connections, but they are not a substitute for comprehensive memory training. Memory has a number of properties — volume, storage speed, storage duration, playback speed, and noise immunity. These properties are trained selectively when memorizing poems. The total amount of information stored, the speed of memorizing and reproducing the poems themselves increases.�

    In addition to the fact that not all the properties of memory are trained, memorizing poems does not affect all its types: long-term and working memory develops, while short-term memory is not affected.

    For the complex development of memory, it is necessary to simultaneously train all its properties and types. Cognitive simulators perfectly cope with this task — tasks in the form of games for the development of attention, memory and thinking. Attention acts as the main “motor” function of the brain, which activates the rest, respectively, without turning on attention, it is impossible to develop memory. This, by the way, is the main mistake when memorizing poems — we often mechanically memorize the sequence of words (rhythmicity helps us in this), but we do not use attention.�

    Cognitive simulators are very convenient because they can be used online. The Wikium platform offers 45+ cognitive simulators, of which 12 are aimed at developing all the properties of memory. Tasks are based on scientific methods of brain research, there are more than 15 of them, including the N-back Problem, the Ebbinghaus Curve, the Wexler Method, the Wundt Method, Schulte Tables, and the Corsi Method. The service itself selects the optimal training program based on the introductory test.

  4. I'm not sure this is even possible. Or everyone has it differently. For example, I know one or two verses from almost 1000 songs. Well, maybe out of 300 :), I didn't count. I know a lot of historical facts. But as a rule, by the evening at work, I don't remember everything I did in the morning 🙂

  5. I'm not a scientist, I'm a practitioner. I teach languages to children, teenagers and adults. So I can tell you a case from practice. I have been studying English for 3 years now with a woman who is now 55 years old. Her profession is not related to memorization and therefore she developed memory only in school, where she studied for a very long time. When she first came to me, she couldn't remember 10 words in a week, and now, a year later, she can easily remember 40 words a week, with a subsequent memorization of 85%, which is a very high result even among school-age children. We were able to achieve this result with regular classes, regular memorization of words and other exercises. This is a vivid example of the fact that even at such an age as 55, you can develop memory, there would be a desire. Therefore, the answer to your question will be the following: how much to pump, of course, I will not tell you, for this you need to conduct special research, but that you can pump your memory in this way and it's quite good for sure!

  6. You can improve your memory not only thanks to poems, but they were not accidentally included in the school curriculum. After all, this is a great memory workout. So it's like a gym. The better you work out your memory and the more diverse these workouts are, the better the result. Poems in a foreign language are generally “Hard lvl” according to experts. Do not forget that memory can be, for example, visual or short-term. Each characteristic has its own training sessions.

    I myself am interested to see a person who honestly learns a verse a day. �Maybe I should try it?))

    PS Knowledge of the Koran or the Gospel by heart is practiced for example for a very long time, therefore it says that to know by heart large volumes of information are real.
