This article is fascinating on so many levels: mnemonics, Congolese hunter-gatherers and their radically different perception of the world, benefits of gaming, etc. And of course, for people like me obsessed with language acquisition, the title says it all!

Have you ever tried using memory techniques for language learning? What are some of the tools or experiences you’ve used or had which worked or didn’t?

In any case, enjoy the article!
