Does anyone know about the memory palace of Matteo Ricci? I refer to the method instead of the book.

It was said that Matteo Ricci learned to speak Chinese within half a year, because he grasped a skill called Memory Palace. Previously I didn't believe such a story , but yesterday I did try a method to remember 20 different articles, for example, tooth, book, lamp, Japan, camera, cup, printer, bike, flower... ... and then I could memorise the order of these 20 items. And today I still remember them quite well.

And it was amazing that some people can memorise pi-3.1415926... as long as possible, but now I believe I can do it if I do some practice.

I don't have problems to remember foreign words. They are simple, but I will forget them soon. Now I think Hermann Ebbinghaus' theory can help people to fight against forgettery.

If you know any skill to improve human memory, please share with us.
