Thanks for the tips. I'm willing to try the Superlearning program but the problem is that in the book they give a list of different songs that they've found work to accomplish the left-right brain cross-activity that is considered necessary for superlearning to occur.
I'm just worried that I'll find some of the songs and they may be just a little bit off the descriptions (for example, the book may call for the 3rd movement and I find the 4th movement instead). So I'll use the songs and it won't work and I won't know if its because the program is bullshit or if the songs aren't right.
I guess I could by the CD from the Superlearning website, but that costs money and thats something I just can't do.
Thanks for the other suggestions guys. That Supermemo sounds interesting, oftentimes when I'm learning something I'll be studying and feel like I'm absorbing everything perfectly but 15 minutes later I'll quiz myself and learn that I only retained like 10% of what I studied.
As far as finding a cute Korean girl to speak Korean with. In my quest for learning the language, that is the one thing that I already have. The cute Korean girl is the reason I want to learn the language and am going through all this painful memorization that was once only reserved for my 9th grade French class.
Thanks for the info.
