Language teacher, linguist and author Mark Frobose began his research on language memory upon his graduation from the University of Illinois in 1979. In 1982 Frobose self-published a language teacher’s training manual entitled ‘Language Dynamics Training Manual’ that describes his unique method of memory enhancement which he called ‘Language Dynamics Periodic Retrieval Technique’.
In the years to follow, Frobose improved this spaced interval memory technique which he later went on to call the ‘Frobose Memory Technique™‘.
This unique and effective variation of Frobose’s original spaced repetition learning approach uses the following memory schedule:
PER LEARNING EPISODE REVIEW INTERVALS
7 seconds – 15 seconds – 30 seconds – 1 minute – 3 minutes – 10 minutes –
A minimum of one complete sequence review within the first 24 hours, followed by a second complete sequence review every 48 hours for the first week.
One complete sequence review a minimum of once every three weeks.
Once internalized, language memory may be maintained by a complete review first once every two months, and then once every four months.
The final memory retention schedule calls for at least one complete memory review once every two years thereafter.
