4. Interesting, I find this to be true for learning a language as well.

My SIL is Brazilian and he & family speak Brazilian Portugese. I have been studying this thru DuoLingua and was having trouble when a bunch of new verbs were thrown at me - over 50 in a few days. At 68 my memory isn't nearly as good as it used to be and I was having trouble remembering them so I wrote them all down with their explanations and it really helped. Something about writing these out helped my brain retain the information much better. So now I'm at another section where I'm struggling so today I will sit down and write them all down and I bet it will help me remember which words to use for in that (male and female and plural) in this and on this and on that - it gets confusing because they have 3 different forms and we don't do that in English.
