Self-Motivation + Retention, a Better Way to Learn
Together, the Jerry Seinfeld Calendar and Pimsleur's Graduated Interval Recall, create a method for improving the ways we learn.
The Jerry Seinfeld Calendar is a self-motivating method to encourage and remind yourself to keep at learning the new language. It involves printing out a visible calendar for 365 days, and marking an X across the days you write. Because you’re enthused about learning this new language, you’ll want to keep at it every day. And soon enough, you’ll have a chain of red Xs. Then the self-motivation is to not break the chain.
