On this episode of the podcast I chat with Grandmaster of Memory and 4x US Memory Champion Nelson Dellis about his mission to learn Dutch, his heritage language – and to get some insight on how memory techniques relate to learning languages.
Language learning and memory training is inherently linked. As we learn more and more words, are memories are put to the test at a constant rate.
In this episode I chat to a Grand Master of Memory about how he uses his knowledge of rapid memory acquisition to better learn Dutch, a heritage language for his family.
