轻松学习英语的 7 条规则
通过创建四种类型的连接来实现记忆：结构，声音，概念和个人连接。心理学家在 1970 年代发现了它们，他们创建了一个奇怪的问卷，其中包含四种类型的问题，并将其交给大学生：
- 结构：BEAR 这个词中有多少个大写字母？
- 声音：苹果与 Snapple 押韵吗？
- 概念：TOOL 是“仪器“的另一个词吗？
图像回忆研究一再证明，我们的视觉记忆是惊人的。1960 年代，记忆研究人员对大学生进行了有史以来最可怕的记忆测试之一：两种选择强制选择测试。在其中，大学生被展示了 612 个杂志广告（可能被绑在椅子上，睁着眼睛），然后被要求在展示新的混合图像时识别旧照片。学生们在 98.5%的时间内正确挑选了旧图像。由于不满意，研究人员用更多的图像重复了他们的测试，试图确定大学生会忍受低薪和免费食物。似乎没有限制。学生们愿意连续五天坐在黑暗的房间里，连续观看一万张图片。研究结束后，这些学生准确地识别了 83%的图像。我们的视觉记忆能力是非凡的;我们只需要学习如何利用它。
你永远不会只在 Anki 下载一个别人的整理好的集合，然后就神奇地学会一门语言。为什么？Anki 卡片在让你记住你自己的东西方面非常出色，如果是别人的，那几乎没什么作用。你在看过别人的卡片时，你可能不会自发地想到你童年的猫或谷歌图片搜索这个词时出现的众多史莱克：穿靴子的猫的图像。没有电影，没有声音，也没有故事。在这种情况下，当你在上班的路上忙着学习时，你将很难形成一个深刻的、多感官的记忆。这不是 SRS 的错;这是语言游戏的本质。
传统的语言课程失败的原因之一就是没有人能给你属于你自己的一门语言，你必须自己创建它。你语言中的每个单词都得是你自己的才行。像 Rosetta Stone 这样的程序可以为像球和大象这样的单词提供体面的原创体验，但最终，你需要处理像经济状况这样的单词。像这样的抽象单词需要复杂的个人联系，如果你要在说话时舒适地使用它们的话。你必须为自己建立这些联系，因为没有人能告诉你当前的经济状况如何影响了你。
你的大脑天生就会忽略外来声音之间的差异。要重新连接它，请用目标语言听最小的单词对（类似发音的 2 个单词），如 niece 和 knee - 并测试自己，直到你的大脑适应听到这些新的声音。这里有一个 Anki 资源很好用：https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/525138553

- Tens of millions of Chinese are currently unable to leave their homes. All face being taken to isolation centres, should they test positive or be declared close contacts of a virus-carrier. A grim fate for anyone, centralised quarantine is terrifying for pet-owners, who must scramble to find a shelter or someone to foster their animals. If they fail, the creatures may starve in an empty flat or—as has happened in several cities—be bludgeoned to death by workers sent to disinfect homes.

Don’t be upset, but . . .
It was a slip of the tongue.
I said it by mistake.
I am sorry that . . .
One hundred percent.
In no way . . .
That isn’t true at all.
That is an exaggeration.
I really can’t believe that.
In principle that is true, but . . .
Admittedly that is true, but . . .
That’s one way to say it.
Only up to a certain point.
Certainly. Why not?
That is all there is to say.
That is all for now.
To sum up . . .
And there is the problem.
I hope it is only a matter of time.
That remains to be seen.
Frankly speaking . . .
Between you and me . . .
Anyway . . .
Well then . . .
Well, as a matter of fact . . .
How can I put it?
I must say that . . .
First . . .
Second . . .
I would like you to know that . . .
I am afraid that . . .
Now and then it seems to me that . . .
After all . . .
As far as I am concerned . . .
More and more . . .
Actually . . .
All joking aside . . .
Now seriously . . .
To be more precise . . .
And what’s more . . .
Since I am already talking about it . . .
I would like to emphasize that . . .
Should I explain in greater detail?
Allow me to say it another way.
That is to say . . .
Nevertheless . . .
Even though . . .
That sounds like . . .
And that is why . . .
Thank you very much.
That is a good question.
That is such a difficult question.
Once upon a time, long ago . . .
Can you tell me please . . . ?
Would you be interested in us talking about something else?
And what do you think?
To tell you the truth . . .
I presume that . . .
I hope that . . .
In my opinion . . .
If that is true . . .
I don’t know exactly.
I would like to think that . . .
The way I see it is that . . .
As you may know . . .
I don’t have a big interest in that.
If I understand correctly . . .
As you already know . . .
That isn’t such a big problem.
That is a matter of opinion.
As far as I know . . .
I have the impression that . . .
It is usually true that . . .
You never know, but . . .
I haven’t thought about it before, but . . .
If I am not mistaken . . .
I am not certain whether . . .
Like every other man/woman . . .
I have my own opinion on it, but . . .
I am not an expert, but . . .
He/she said something like . . .
My wife/husband pointed out that . . .
Recently, I heard that . . .
My better half said . . .
Now it occurs to me that . . .
By the way . . .
I have an interesting story about it.
And besides that . . .
Oh, I nearly forgot . . .
And one more thing . . .
On the other hand . . .
