A new Canadian study shows people who read aloud are able to remember more.
This finding has implications both for older people and for students.
According to Medical News Today researchers at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada put 95 people into four groups who:
- Read silently
- Listened to someone else read
- Listened to a recording of themselves reading
- Read out loud in real time.
The people in the group which read out loud had the best recall. Those who read silently remembered the least.
