How to Learn Faster with the Feynman Technique (Example Included)

106777 ratings | 3610079 views
If you want to cut your study time, using the Feynman Technique is a great way to do it. Named after the physicist Richard Feynman, it revolves around explaining a concept in simple language as if you were teaching it to someone else. In this video, I'll show you exactly how to use the Feynman Technique. Want examples? You can find them here: https://collegeinfogeek.com/feynman-technique/ My book "10 Steps to Earning Awesome Grades" is completely free, so check it out if you're interested in improving your grades! http://collegeinfogeek.com/get-better-grades/ ---------- Videos you might want to watch next: 5 Tips for Acing Multiple Choice Tests: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1y8c_MZYvE The Most Powerful Way to Remember What You Study: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVajQPuRmk8 ---------- If you want to get even more strategies and tips on becoming a more productive, successful student, subscribe to my channel right here: http://buff.ly/1vQP5ar Twitter ➔ https://twitter.com/tomfrankly Instagram ➔ https://instagram.com/tomfrankly ~ created by Thomas Frank Music: "Nola" by Broke for Free: http://brokeforfree.com/ Graphics: https://paper.dropbox.com/doc/081-The-Feynman-Technique-tKx0c7JzZ6rzkraWIZ1Bm My wallpaper: http://i.imgur.com/M6tL2a8.png

Correction on the example - 25 + 9 = 34, so C would be 5.83. Bonus tip: Don't do math at midnight while also trying to pack for a 5am flight

Are you still packing? -25 + 9 = 34...

Does anyone have some ideas for this technique can be applied to learning a language? I'm not very academically minded so struggle when revising my class notes/homework Thanks for the video

Could anybody tell me how to stop procrastinating in Feynman technique?

I kind of was already doing this without realizing it, I work in IT and we have a shared knowledge base. In the past my colleagues have written them up and they are hard to read and understand. When I began writing some of my own I was determined to write it exactly how I would want to read this and thats to eliminate as many questions which might arise as you are going through with also adding images (as often they can clarify meaning and confirm what you should be seeing) Overall my writeup's even months after first doing them I can go back and easily follow them

Idk... seems like you made Feynman’s ‘have fun with it’ theory into ‘it became an academically boring work..’

Writing something down, after you have mentally thought it through, helps clarify your grasp of the principles...then...explain it to someone.

Hi Thomas, excellent video. I have mentioned you and shared the link to this video in my video of how to overcome exam fear. In India countless students commit suicide because of exam fear so evidence one student can benefit from it, it will be worth it.

my go-to for science concepts i can’t understand is looking up a kids version of it. like “transcription and translation for kids” and then i read and watch the content targeted towards children lol

Here's another super-learning technique: study a subject in another language. I am an interpreter and I once had a long contract to interpret a class on factory maintenance for a Japanese trainer in an American factory. For preparation, I received the training textbooks in Japanese and read through them all. This was advanced engineering that I didn't even know how to talk about in English, but after studying it in Japanese and interpreting it, I got a really deep understanding of the contents that is still with me a year later.

Sadly for anyone in the Indian system this is not much help, because the marks come from those convoluted terms and words.
Dyane Espinosa (1 month ago)
Am I a genious? I've been doing this technique since I was in college, with out knowing it was the Feynman Technique. I just discovered that this is my way to learn. I'm a Training Specialist now and one of my collegues asked me to check out this technique. I can totally relate to it! Love it! and you explain it really well. Thank you.

You're avoiding the difficult topics and explaining the simple one, this implies you are not good in it, so challenge yourself in it first

I remember my mom when I was little she used to ask me did you do your homework? what did you read? I didn't go to school here I don't know, explain it to me. she would pretend that she doesn't know anything so I have the motivation to do my homework to explain her and teach her stuff. Of course, she did it on purpose. she was the one teaching me.

You've made 5:47 minute video and spent the better half of it on background info and referencing other videos. Even though the video was informative, you need to improve upon your technique. I don't usually add comments to criticize people in this way, but you seem like somebody who knows what he's doing and you have a very appealing voice, thus people enjoy listening to you. So, please receive this as constructive criticism rather than a rant of any sort.

With this video, you used the Feynman technique to explain the Feynman technique.
Dominic Brown (4 months ago)
Thanks for the great video explaining a very useful technique. It might have been worth saying at some point, that one should always be careful not to loose anything fundamental when simplifying. There is a limit to how far you can "simplify" some concepts, and a flawed explanation would rather defeat the purpose.
Akash Singh (4 months ago)
this is the technique i use generaly but i write in my own language like i m from india so i write in hindglish( actually its hindi written in english alphabets) but i try to teach myself in that but i think i need to upgrade now😇 thanks a lot
