A great way to help you remember something is to imagine a picture of it in your mind.
在你的脑海把东西是想象成一幅图片是帮助你记忆的一个很棒的方法。
If you make the picture big, strange or silly, you will remember it better.
如果你把画面想得很大,很奇怪或很傻,你会更好地记住它。
For example, to remember the word “smiles”,
例如:要记住“smiles(微笑)”这个单词,
we can imagine there is a “mile” between the first letter and the last letter.
我们可以想象在第一个和最后一个字母之间的“mile(英里)”。
This makes it the longest word in the world.
这使得它成了世界上最长的单词。
Remember. A picture is worth a thousand words.
记住,一图胜千言。
Paula
A good method for remembering the spelling of a word is to make a short sentence with each letter of the word.
记住一个单词的拼写的一个好方法是用把这个单词的每一个字母来组一个简短的句子。
For example, if you want to remember how to spell the word “because”,
例如:如果你想记住如何拼写单词“because(因为)”,
you can use the sentence “Big elephants can always understand small elephants”.
你可以用一句“Big elephants can always understand small elephants(大大象总是可以理解小大象)”。

You will forget something very quickly unless you understand it well.
如果你对一种东西没好好理解,你会忘记得非常快。
For example, you may have trouble remembering the list of steps in the water cycle.

However, it is easier to remember these steps if you understand how the water cycle works.
