1. Say the name out loud, and often
The simplest way to boost your memory for a person’s name on meeting them is to use it repeatedly while talking to them. By actively using a person’s name, you’re practising the memory, and, just as importantly, you’re gaining confidence in using it.
2. Link the name to an amusing image.
Another powerful method for linking names to people is to use wordplay to transform the name into an amusing sentence.
3. Learn more about the person
On first meeting a person, you typically know nothing about them, so it can be difficult to find enough ideas to connect with their name and face to make those associations stick.
4. Don’t be afraid to get it wrong
Paradoxically, the main reason we struggle to remember names is our fear of getting them wrong. Better to risk it and be wrong (and so learn and correct) than find oneself referring to someone as “mate” for a whole evening, and hoping not to bump into them ever again.

A NATIONAL FOCUS ON EDUCATION IS A MUST: US students score below average on math and near the average on reading and science in international ranking http://t.co/GeNtBeydL
Norway allows any student from anywhere in the world to study at the Public Universities completely free of charge. Canada does too. What’s wrong g with the US- greed and misplaced budget priorities.
