Theresa asks about remembering names when the names are not standard names in your mother tongue. Are there times when the traditional means of remembering names (described in episode 2 and episode 108) might not work? In the episode, I describe a method for memorizing these names in a manner similar to the way that foreign language vocabulary is learned.
