Question:

As an intermediate Spanish student, what is the most difficult part of your current stage in the language learning process?

Daniella M.
Answer:

The most difficult part of studying Spanish at an intermediate level is the ability to be able to process what a speaker is saying to you, and what you want to say in English, and then translating it into Spanish in your head before you say it aloud. You aren't necessarily at the point where you can speak without translating, and that is a difficult stump to get over.

Question:

What is one way that we can use cognitive psychology to better understand our working memory, and to gain insight into how to better put to use this aspect of memorization?

Daniella M.
Answer:

Chunking and encoding are two ways that can help us to better understand and use our working memory to our advantage. By chunking information into smaller items, our brains can better section off the information to help us recall later. Working memory is the part of our memory where we are able to store information as an active part of our consciousness. Here information is easily accessed, and in order to keep information in our working memory, encoding is necessary. This allows us to easily pull the information when needed.
