- Your brain is like a hard drive — the space is limited. Remember Sherlock Holmes? He couldn’t name all the planets of the Solar system — this was not because he missed school or something like that, but because he was too smart to have such irrelevant information in his memory. He deliberately erased facts he would never need. This is what your brain does: it protects you from overloading with information. That’s why all new data is stored in the short-term memory, not the long-term one. So, if you don’t repeat it or use it, you forget it very quickly.
A German psychologist, Hermann Ebbinghaus researched the memory and its mechanisms. He described the Forgetting Curve which shows that just one hour after learning something new we forget more than half of the learned information. One day later we remember only about 30% percent. Well, you see where this is going.
- There is a memorization technique called «Spaced repetition». To keep some information in your head for a longer time, you need to try to put it into your long-term memory. Forced memorization is not very effective in this case because your brain can’t make sense of the information quickly and form strong associations. Here it all depends on the reason why you are learning something.
- To memorize something quickly, repeat the information right after learning it.
The second repetition should be after 15-20 minutes.
You don’t need to return to the information between repetitions — just rest and do something different. Let your brain relax.
Repeat the learned material the third time after 6-8 hours.
And you should have the final repetition 24 hours after the first contact with the information.

Really helpful. I've always liked the videos of bright side. Besides, I've come across this another video https://youtu.be/dRsSD7ngNQg that helped me to learn a language quickly. Thanks to these YouTube channels for helping millions of us.😀😄😄
Repeat the same thing right after, every 15-20 mins, every 6-8 hours, and after 24 hours?!?!? There are too many things I learn in school! Plus, how would I repeat 20 mins after? I have another class instantly!
Just study with your imagination; you will not have to force to memorise. You will keep in your brain forever within very short time. Also remember, no one have been able to find out the limit of human brainpower, so have faith on it.

Guys it just depends on you
I remember exactly the discussion I made about 8 years ago
I remember exactly what I responded when someone asked me something
I remember exactly every message
Like it sounds impossible but... I have no idea how it happens
I started speaking 1 year old and could already play chess and win all of my friends and relatives at 3
I dont need much time to study and I just wanted to understand how does this happen looking for a useful video on UT but I guess it is just inside me or sth...
My problem with spaced repetition is that I get bored with the same material presented in the exact same way, I'm too lazy to repeat information when I need to do so (rigid schedules aren't my thing), I forget (haha, how fitting) the timing I should have followed, and I'm impatient to move on with new things.
Foundation of good memory are sleep well enough and early everyday/night. Healthy diets and eat vegetables, practice memorizing with the help of your furnitures and housewares at home, count items per room and remember them. Don't be stressed.

Bricolajul a ajuns in Romania in urma cu aproximativ 10 ani, insa in Statele Unite si in statele occidentale acest concept este mai vechi, si isi are originile la inceputul anilor ’50. Bricolajul se refera la capacitatea oamenilor de a crea sau repara diverse obiecte fara a apela la ajutor specializat.
Primul catalog de bricolaj pentru renovarea locuintei a aparut in 1968. Acesta a nascut conceptul de bricolaj care sta la baza lanturilor de magazine din zilele noastre. De la covoare si perdele, pana la mobilier si prefabricate, bricolajul se refera la tot ce inseamna renovarea unei locuinte in aceasta acceptiune.
Pe orlo.ro gasesti toate cataloagele de bricolaj, de la cei mai importanti comercianti. Catalog Dedeman, Catalog Praktiker, Catalog Baumax, Catalog Bricostore, Catalog Ambient si altii.
In Romania retelele de magazine pentru bricolaj sau extins rapid, cel mai important comerciant din acest segment este Dedeman, care a pornit din orasul Bacau si a ajuns sa detina magazine in cele mai importante orase din tara.
