    The word 'lemak' is fat, but in the sense of lard / grease.
    Google translate needs to be corrected....

    I'm really getting the hang of this word association.

    I'm now working on how to get 'Fat and Chubby" to 'Lemak dan Gemuk"...anyone help?

    In the French quarter of Seminyak eating LE big MAC Dan explodes and GEt's MUCK everywhere! (of course you need to say "muck" with a Northern Accent to get the best pronunciation )

    If you want to hear the correct pronunciation - then get the app - that has native speakers saying the word.
    Yeah, it's definitely not for me, but as long as you're eventually giving them the correct pronunciation I'm sure others will benefit.

    Well - I don't think Standford is making it up and I've read the papers and their methods are sound using basic Memes and words associations in Spanish and Russian - furthermore, I'ts how I learned so I personally know it works - As I said - if it's not for you, it's not for you.

    Hi Indo2000 - as far as learning goes - this doesn't work for everyone - but luckily there's loads of methods out there - so, I appreciate the good wishes and hope you find something that works for you. As for the proof - please check out this link and you'll see a Stanford study that proved the method. http://www.lingolinks.biz/#research

    Thanks James. I'm not really sure that evidence is definitive but it's better than nothing. Also, just so you know, that left-brain right-brain thing is a myth.

    Using your books and method, do you end up telling your readers that 'kucing' isn't pronounced 'ke-ching' and that 'akan' isn't pronounced 'I can'. Am I missing a step?

    Hi folks...

    It's been a while - I've been busy

    I've been working on a new book, updating the website and releasing an Android App for the method.

    I want people to be able to try it for themselves as easily as possible so you can buy with confidence. There's FREE goodies on the site - so please help yourself

    Also, there is a great new service from Nulis Buku who will deliver a paperback copy straight to your door in Indonesia. Check the website for details.

    Word association is the only way I can remember new words these days. By that I mean the one or two I learn each month

    I really need to start studying again...

    I have a terrible short term memory so I need word association to remember new vocabulary for a few days, then the new word gets committed to long term memory (to be forgotten again because I am rubbish at revising)

    What a terrific idea! Amongst the first words I learnt were bintang, susu and pantat, I have no idea how they stuck in my head.

    Good luck to you, I'm sure this will work for some people, but to me personally this method is unintuitive. For instance, take your Cat/Kucing word association example. I'd now have to think of a cat in a till, the till makes the sound ke-ching, and then I'd have to remember that it's not actually ke-ching it's koo-ching. It's too long winded in my opinion.

    Also, trying Google just now, I can't find any evidence that this method is actually proven to work. Feel free to add some links, I'd be interested to know for sure as I'm about to start seriously studying again after resting on my laurels for a couple of years.
