As we add more chunks of information our minds correlate, collate, and link everything, referring back to previously learned facts to form a comprehensive sphere of knowledge. What does this mean to you? Don't tackle a huge book of foreign language grammar or prose as an early learning project. Begin with smaller projects.  (read full article)
