Mind maps

The principle of creating a mind map is placing a central key word on paper and drawing radial logical branches. For better perception of such diagrams all means of visualization are good: different colours, different lines, additional pictures.


You can work out logical connections by your own and gradually add something to your mind maps while staying within one topic. This is a simple and effective way of writing down as many lexical combinations with one word as you can. Providing mind maps with pictures increases retention. One of the drawbacks is that if you decide to organize your mind map differently, you’ll have to draw the whole picture again. However, this method proves very effective and it is just fun.
