It has been discovered that we learn:

10% of what we read

20" of what we hear

30% of what we see

50% of what we see and hear

70% of what we say

90% of what we say and do.

So if we combine all of this we could learn faster? Well, let's try it. This month I have reviewed "The Learning Revolution" by Gordon Dryden and Dr Jeannette Vos and in it they describe a very quick way of learning to count to ten in Japanese by seeing, speaking and doing. Consider the following:

English  Japanese  Say  Do
one  ichi   itchy  Scratch your
two  ni   knee  Knee
three  san   Sun   Point to sky
four  shi   she  Point to girl
five  go   go  Walk
six  roku   rock  Rock 'n' Roll
seven  shichi   shi-chi  Double Sneeze
eight  hachi   hat-chi  Put on hat
nine  kyu   coo  Coo like a dove
ten  ju   ju  Chew (or don Jewish cap)

If you practise that a few times you will be able to count to ten in Japanese with no problem. So by seeing (having read this article) and then saying and doing, you will have learnt some new information very quickly. What other things can you learn quicker in this fashion?
