Ways to improve your memory

A good memory is often seen as something that comes naturally, and a bad memory as something that cannot be changed, but actually is a lot that you can do to improve your memory.

We all remember the things we are interested in and forget the ones that bore us. This no doubt explains the reason schoolboys remember football results effortlessly but struggle with dates from their history lessons! Take an active interest what you want to remember, and focus on it consciously. One way to ‘make’ yourself more interested is to ask questions - the more the better!

Physical exercise is also important for your memory, because it increases your heart and sends more oxygen to your brain, and that makes your memory work better. Exercise also reduces stress, which is very bad for the memory.

The old saying that “eating fish makes you brainy” may be true after all. Scientists have discovered that the fats found in fish like tuna, sardines and salmon - as as in olive oil - help to improve the memory. Vitamin-rich fruits such as oranges, strawberries and red grapes are all good ‘brain food’, too.

Read the following passage and choose the best answer to the questions.

Viet Nam's Past Educational System

In comparison with other developing countries, Viet Nam’s population enjoys a relatively high standard of education. In the past, Viet Nam’s educational system was affected by many cultures, of which the Chinese and French had the most significant influence.

The Imperial Academy - the first university in Viet Nam - was built in 1076 under Emperor Ly Nhan Tong for the education of sons of royalty and other high-ranking officials. In 1252, the college was opened to students from various backgrounds besides royal or official ones. Before the French came, the old-type Mandarin system administered Viet Nam for approximately 2,000 years. As the French took over the government's administration, it was converted from a Confucian system into a Western-oriented one.

In order to participate in the civil service under French rule, the Vietnamese had to convert to the French system and were required to know the French language. In addition, they had to have a good facility with the new version of their language instead of the traditional Chinese characters which had been in use for hundreds of years.

At the beginning of 1900, the whole system was revised. An educational system of three levels was established: infant, primary, and secondary education. In addition, the use of the national language (Quoc Ngu) was added to the curriculum. Emphasis was placed on rote learning, class discipline, and other French educational methods. Several new schools and colleges were established. Accordingly, French became the second language of much importance to the students.

In the past, Viet Nam enjoyed a relatively high standard of education with _____.

 
  • the effects of the Chinese culture

  • made Vietnamese people follow a Western-oriented education

We can infer from the passage that in the French educational system in Viet Nam, ____.

  • the traditional Chinese characters have been widely used
  • the Confucian system was banned in the beginning
  • the national language is the first language and French is the second one
  • students with different academic levels could attend the Imperial Academy since 1252

All of the following are true about the education in Viet Nam under the French rule EXCEPT that _____.

 
  • the system had three levels
  • students only used the national language at home
  • most students paid much attention to French
  • several new schools and colleges were established
