  • Hello, everybody.

    大家好!

  • In this video, I'm going to share with you a technique that you can use to remember English vocabulary.

    在這部影片中,我要跟大家分享一個背英文單字的技巧。

  • And the reason that I recommend this technique is that it's pretty effective.

    我想推薦這個技巧是因為它真的很有效。

  • I actually did a small experiment.

    事實上,我做了一個小實驗。

  • I created two lists of words that I didn't know, and I just tried to memorize the words in each list.

    我做了兩張單字表,然後試著全部背起來。

  • I did not use any technique to memorize the first list.

    我沒有用任何技巧來背第一張單字表

  • It was just pure repetition.

    只是單純複誦。

  • But for the second list, I used the technique that you're about to learn.

    第二張單字表就使用了你接下來要學的記憶技巧。

  • The next day I tried to recall the meanings of the words in both lists.

    隔天,我試著回想這兩張單字表上面每個單字的意思。

  • For the first list, I was able to recall only 12 percent.

    第一張單字表我只能記得大約 12% 的單字。

  • But for the second list, I recalled as much as 50 percent.

    但是第二張表我卻可以記得 50% 的單字。

  • This is pretty impressive, considering the fact that I spent only one minute memorizing each word.

    這真的蠻了不起的,尤其是我只花了一分鐘去背每個單字。

  • So let me explain the technique and at the end of this video, I will give you a link to an exercise that you can do to practice this technique.

    所以,我現在要來解釋如何使用這個技巧,在影片的最後我會給你們一個連結,讓你多練習使用這個技巧。

  • So, let's say we want to remember the word "adroit," which means "clever or skillful at something, really good at something".

    假設我們要背 adroit 這個字,意思是「熟練或是對某事很在行」。

  • The first thing we need to do is to come up with another word that sounds similar to this word.

    首先,我們必須先想一個跟這個單字唸起來音很像的另一個字。

  • And that word must refer to something that we can visualizesomething that we can see in our mind.

    這個字必須代表某個我們可以視覺化的東西—我們可以在腦海裡想像出來的東西。

  • So, for this word, the substitute word could be the word "android," which means "a robot," right?

    舉例來說,我們可以用 android 這個字來代替,意思是「機器人」。

  • Adroit and android sound pretty close to each other.

    Adroit 和 android 發音聽起來很類似。

  • We could also use the phrase "a drawing."

    或者,也可以用 drawing 這個字。

  • That sounds similar as well.

    它們的發音也很像。

  • Adroit.

    Adroit。

  • A drawing.

    A drawing。

  • Now, what these words have in common is that they refer to something that we can visualize.

    這些字的共同點在於,它們都可以被視覺化。

  • And this is a very important point, and you're going to find out why soon.

    這點非常重要,你馬上就會知道原因。

  • So, we have two options here, but let's use the word "android" as the substitute word.

    所以現在我們有兩個選擇,但我們來用 android 這個字。

  • Now visualize an androidyou know, a robot that looks like a human.

    現在來想像一個機器人...你知道的,一個跟人很像的機器人。

  • Next, we have to associate this image to the meaning of the word that we want to remember.

    接著,把這個圖像跟我們想背的單字連結在一起。

  • And again, the meaning is "skillful at something."

    再說一次,這個字的意思是「對某事很在行」。

  • That's the meaning.

    這是這單字的意思。

  • So, perhaps we can imagine the android doing something that requires a lot of skill.

    所以,或許我們可以想像一個機器人要做某件很技巧性的事情。

  • Maybe we can imagine the android playing the guitar on stage.

    例如:機器人在台上彈奏吉他。

  • Maybe there's a competition going on, and we can imagine other guitarists come up on stage and try to compete with the android.

    也許是場吉他比賽,還有其它選手要同台競逐要和機器人一較高下。

  • But everybody loses because the android is very good at playing the guitar.

    但是所有人都輸了,因為機器人真的非常會彈吉他。

  • The android is adroit at playing the guitar.

    機器人很擅長彈吉他。

  • So, what we're doing here is associate (associating) the pronunciation with the meaning through an image or a story.

    想辦法把發音跟單字的意思用一個畫面或是一個故事來連結。

  • We're creating an association between them.

    創造兩者之間的關聯性。

  • So, when you come across this word again, the pronunciation will remind you of the association, and therefore the meaning of the word.

    所以當你再遇到這個字的時候,發音會讓你想起一開始的那個聯想,所以你就會想起單字的意思。

  • Let's take a look at one more example.

    讓我們再看一個例子。

  • Suppose we want to memorize the word, "lambaste," which means "to criticize someone or something harshly."

    假設我們要背 lambaste 這個單字,意思是「嚴厲地批評某人或某事」。

  • For the first syllable "lam," we can use "lamb," the animal, or "lamp," the thing that generates light, as the substitute word.

    第一個音節 lam,我們可以用 lamb (小羊),或是 lamp (燈),作為替代單字。

  • For the second syllable "baste," we can use "bass," the musical instrument, and I also happen to have a friend named "Bass."

    第二個音節 baste,我們可以用 bass (一種樂器),而且我剛好有個朋友的名字是 Bass。

  • So personally, I can use his name as the substitute word as well.

    所以,我也可以用那個朋友的名字當作替代的字。

  • But let's use "lamb" the animal and "bass" the musical instrument together.

    我們先用 lamb 和 bass 作為替代單字。

  • So we can imagine a lamb playing the bass.

    試著想像一隻正在彈奏貝斯的小羊。

  • But unfortunately, the lamb is really terrible at playing the bass.

    而這隻小羊彈貝斯彈得很糟。

  • So the bass gets angry and starts criticizing the lamb.

    所以,這把貝斯大發雷霆,並開始罵這隻小羊。

  • The bass is lambasting the lamb.

    這把貝斯正嚴厲地批評小羊。

  • Okay, that's it!

    沒錯,就是這樣。

  • I hope you find this video useful.

    我希望你看完這部影片後有所收穫。

  • And I have an exercise for you if you want to practice this technique.

    我另外準備了些練習題讓你熟練這個記憶技巧。

  • Just click here to go to the exercise.

    你可以點擊這裡進入練習。

  • Now, unfortunately, this technique doesn't work if you don't know the pronunciation of the word that you want to remember.

    不過很不幸地,如果你不知道單字的發音,你就無法使用這個技巧。

  • So if that is the case, you need to use another method, which is beyond the scope of this video.

    在這個情況下,你需要的是另外一種方法,但那就脫離這部影片的主題了。
