Hi, I'm Cam. When I got the opportunity to move from the United States to Japan for my job I jumped on it without thinking twice...
It Didn't Take Me Long to Figure Out Just How Hard and Boring Learning a New Language Can Be
Don't get me wrong... The IDEA of learning a new language is really exciting, at least it is to me... But once I sat down with my first Japanese it didn't take me long to realize that Japanese is pretty complicated and this was going to be a LONG and BORING process...
I skipped from one course to the next and found out that they're all pretty similar to each other...â€‹
I'd write down words 50 times... And still not remember them a few days later.
I'd cram my brain with vocabulary and grammar books... And it was BOOORING!
I'd watch videos and play with interactive software... I'm not saying it didn't help, but it was tedious and not much fun.
After days of studying I felt like I had made absolutely no progress.
I don't have a terrible memory, I don't have the greatest memory either, but this stuff was hard...
I didn't know it at the time, but it didn't have to be hard... It didn't have to be boring (it's actually a lot of fun) and I could have mastered over 1,000 Japanese words in the same amount of time it's take me to get through a lesson or two in "traditional" Japanese courses.â€‹
I know that sounds like an unbelievable claim but it's true, and I'm about to tell you why...â€‹
Here's how a man I've never met taught me Japanese... in less than a week.
I was REALLY struggling to learn Japanese... In fact, if I wasn't FORCED to learn it for my job, I probably would have given up.
But I'm glad I didn't, because not only is the ability to speak Japanese an extremely rewarding experience, but I've learned some other skills that have helped me throughout my life in more ways than I could have ever imagined... Let me explain.
I was browsing the web when I stumbled across an article about a man named Harry Lorayne.
You may have heard of him, he famously went on the Tonight Show... Memorized the ENTIRE audience's names in a matter of minutes, and then called them all out by name. Pretty incredible, right?
â€‹Not only that, he's taught literally tens of thousands of people how to unlock the true potential of their memory. Even Time Magazine calls him "The Yoda of Memory Training."
I started wondering if this guy could help me figure out a way to learn Japanese faster, so I went out and bought just about everything he's ever put out on memory training...â€‹
When I Used His Techniques I Started Learning Japanese... I Was Having Fun, And I Was Learning and Retaining Over 100 Words Per Hour.
I know it sounds incredible, but it's true. In just a few hours I was starting to pick up Japanese words faster than ever before... In less than a week I was having conversations in Japanese... And in less than 2 months time I was completely fluent in Japanese.
Keep in mind it takes some people 10 YEARS to become fluent in Japanese... And that's because they learn the same way that nearly every single course out there teaches... And it's a looong and boring process.â€‹
Using the memory techniques taught by Harry Lorayne literally took years off of my learning curve... Pretty soon I started turning it into a course, mainly for myself, and was learning 100 new words per hour... And I was easily remembering them, permanently.
Whenever a new American co-worker of mine would transfer to Japan, I'd let them borrow the course I'd put together for myself... And every single one of them where having fluent conversations in Japanese in less than a weeks time...
Our Japanese co-workers couldn't believe it!â€‹
I Knew I Was On To Something BIG...
Since my system was working for more and more people, I decided to go ahe
