Hello. This is the beginning. How exciting. I’ve always wanted to start a blog site. I know, procrastination is bad.
After slight struggle, I decide to focus on writing down what I learned each day, and trying to explain everything I thought I knew.
For example today I learned a concept called Feynman Technique, named after the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman. It’s a method for learning. The basic idea is to explain the concept you want to learn in plain, simple language.
- Pick a concept. Write it down.
- Explain it as much as you can.
- Once get stuck, go to your material, check it out.
- Check your explanation, replace any complex terms with simpler ones. Make sure someone without any background can understand.
It’s a good technique. But I wonder if it help with learning language. Because I don’t think it’s something you can “explain”. When describe the 4 steps of using Feynman technique, there is something I want to say, but I don’t know how to express it in English.
Since I’m not a master in English writing, I’ll only use it once in a while, for practice purpose.
No more gibberish. See you soon.
