### توضیح مختصر

We need some way of converting those difficult, abstract symbols, digits, numbers, into something that we can process and then turn into something that we can imagine or visualize. So, depending on what you're trying to memorize, if it's a sequence of numbers, we'd have to use maybe your body method or you use a memory palace, like I've talked about in other videos. Or if you're using something, like you're trying to remember a year, or a PIN code, or a birthday, very short numbers that have to be attached to someone, or some fact, or some thing.

### متن انگلیسی درس

What up everyone? Welcome to another Memory Tips video. My name’s Nelson Dells, four time USA member Memory champion. And in this video I’m going to be teaching you how to remember numbers. So the thing with numbers is that they’re hard. A lot of people have difficulty remembering numbers for some reason. It’s because numbers are so abstract, right. They’re these symbols that represent a number but beyond that they’re kind of just a symbol. Individually these symbols, these numbers are meaningless. So the goal with numbers, first and foremost, is to give numbers meaning. Well how do we do that Nelson? I’m going to show you viewer. First thing we need to memorize numbers is a system. We need some way of converting those difficult, abstract symbols, digits, numbers, into something that we can process and then turn into something that we can imagine or visualize. And easiest thing to visualize are words, so we need a system that’ll turn numbers into words. And to be able to construct words, we need letters. So I have the perfect system for you. You’ll be memorizing numbers in no time I’m going to need some tools let’s go. This is something called the major system. What’ll do is turn each digit 0 through 9 into a consonant sound. 0 is an s or a z sound. 1 is a t or a d sound 2 is an n, 3, m, 4 is an r 5 is an l 6, j, ch, soft g sound. 7 is a k, ch or a hard g sound. 8 is the f or v 9 is p or b. So you need to memorize this first. Let’s start with 0 z right? t or d 1 down stroke. You draw a t or d go down. Same with the f you have 2 downstroke m 3 downstroke could slip 3 over 4 ends in r, 5 that’s an L right? 5 fingers gives you an L. If i draw J like that Kind of looks like a backwards 6. 7, if I draw a capital K, look at that, that’s two 7s, back to back. If I draw a cursive f, it looks like an 8. Finally a 9, flip it, I get p, if I flip that, I get a b, okay. So let’s try a number, let’s choose say 54. 5 is that L, right? R is the 4. So we have L R, now that opens a bunch of possibilities where we can place the vowels before or in between or after wherever you can come up with a bunch of words Lure ,Lawyer. L(aye)R, L(ai)R, L(au)R(a) And remember, these all go by sound. So even though a word like L(awye)R has awye in between the L and the R, you think, okay, those aren’t really vowels although it is a vowel sound. The sound is all that matters, right. So L(awye)R The main consonant sounds that you hear are the L and the R. So, when you hear lawyer, or when you see lawyer, you’re going to decipher those two consonant sounds into letters representing 5, 4. Now, that number is going nowhere in your memory unless you would touch to something. So, depending on what you’re trying to memorize, if it’s a sequence of numbers, we’d have to use maybe your body method or you use a memory palace, like I’ve talked about in other videos. Or if you’re using something, like you’re trying to remember a year, or a PIN code, or a birthday, very short numbers that have to be attached to someone, or some fact, or some thing. That’s a different process as well and that’s probably easier. Let’s start with a few examples of how to remember small numbers to singular facts.

Let’s go.
