Multi channel learning
A human being has got a lot of senses. These senses can absorb information paralell to each other. The more senses are used to take something in, the better the brain can work with this information. The best way to make clarify the meaning of e.g. bread would be to served a fresh, warm and aromatic bread with the words: "a bread for you" while you are nearly starving.
It's not possible to create learning situations like this. But you can use your senses by speaking aloud to yourself and visualizing a situation.
