How You Teach Yourself?

After you learn anything by reading, how you really teach yourself?

There are few ways to do that:

Teaching it to others (like friends or colleagues). When you teach others, you should articulate the material so well that people you are teaching can understand it. It will make you also proficient in what you are teaching.
• If you don’t feel comfortable in teaching others, you can teach it using your imagination. They also call it teaching in your mind’s eye. Just imagine that you hall full of audience and you are speaker as well as audience. You ask yourself a question. Then as a speaker answer saying it is a good question and regurgitate what you have learned earlier. Articulate the material same way as if you are teaching a friend or a colleague. This will clearly enhance the learning of the material.
Learning from mentors in real world situations. Observing them and then doing the same way.

Way To Learn Is To Teach It

When anyone learns something, it is not retained very well. Reason for this is material learned is not fully internalized. It has not become a second nature to you. To achieve this one must first remember the material fully. This is done by spaced repetition as was cleared in earlier post.

Once you remember it, then it should be known so well that it becomes a second nature. That is done by teaching it. The person you should teach first is you.

Imagine that you are teaching a class full of students. Let your imagination take charge. Then regurgitate whatever you have learned in that class. Since you are teacher as well as student, ask yourself questions about what you are teaching. Then answer the question in loud enough voice so that whole class can hear it. Articulate the answers good and convert it into back and forth discussion. When you finish it you will be remembering what you were teaching extremely well. Now you have already mastered what you have learned. It is now a part of your permanent knowledge bank. Essentially you have internalized the material you have learned.
