If you’re struggling to understand someone’s words or words you’re saying them, you might be more likely to remember them when they say them, a study has found.
A study conducted by the University of Edinburgh and published in the British Journal of Linguistics has found that people can improve their understanding of words by reading them a bit differently.
The study found that participants who read a sentence in a different language in their daily life were more likely than those who didn’t to remember a word or word combination, even if the word was related to their own language.
The research was carried out by Dr Peter Farrar and his team of researchers from the university.
The authors say they hope it will help improve the way we learn.

The researchers asked the participants to rate their familiarity with each word and word combination by saying whether they had read it before or if they had just been reminded of it.
They found that the participants who had read the sentences in different languages were more familiar with the words and words combination, than those in their own native language.
“The more you learn, the more you will recognise the meanings of words and the meaning of sentences, and you will be able to understand them more easily,” Dr Farrars said.
“In our studies, we found that learning is not only a matter of increasing your vocabulary but also improving your ability to recognise them, and that this process takes place across a wide range of languages.”
He said the research could help people in different ways.
“For example, people who are bilingual or who have a background in language can use this information to help them better understand the meaning and meaning of the sentences they are reading,” he said.
It is important to recognise that you can’t make your brain work like a language learning machine, and therefore you need to focus on the words you are reading.
