When in Rome….

The Romans had a method, sometimes called the Journey method, for remembering things and it is a system that can still be used today.

The basic idea was that a Roman who wished to remember all the things he needed to do would imagine walking around his home. By imagining the tasks in a particular room (and in an interesting way) he was then able to recall the item simply by picturing himself in that room.

Look, I am not explaining this very well….Why don’t you click on the photo I took recently of the Roman Baths and watch a video of this concept using a modern setting?

Could you use this method to remember English vocabulary?
