Bird Songs

The task

Try to memorize the name and song of various common bird species.
Try to spot out the characteristic traits (color of feathers, size of beak, tone range, tune, etc). They will make your learning easier.

What it trains

To do this in an efficient manner, and since there are numerous items that are quite similar, you should set up a memorization technique relying on relevant hints. If, like many of us, you’re not quite used to work on your auditory memory, you will progress rapidly. And what a pleasure it is to hear all these birds!

Parameters

A predefined set of levels has been specially selected to ensure an easy start and grant a regular progression.

You’ve got Voice Mail

The task

Checked your voicemail today yet? This game requires you to listen to more or less long and complex messages by female or male voices. Memorize the information you are given. The messages may refer to various topics, the information you need to retain can therefore be on any random subject. During the recall, you need to answer questions about the messages.

What it trains

This game challenges your short-term memory. Typically, your short-term memory is necessary when you are having a conversation or reading an article for example. It helps remembering what has just been heard or read. Our verbal span is only short (about 7 items, plus minus 2) and the amount of information to retain from the message sometimes goes beyond this span. The idea is therefore to apply mnemotechnical methods such as associations or mental imagery in order to enhance the memorization process.
