    remembering what you just read/heard

    I have trouble recalling the words I have just read. I understand the material, then when I try to express what I just read, I can't remember the words.
    I think it's getting better with my eng. getting better, but are there specific things I can do?

    Read, or listen, actively - that is, summarize. It's a good idea to try to write a journal (it doesn't have to be a formal one for people to comment on - though you'd be welcome to post you own writing in this or another UE forum; just take half an hour at the end of the day to go over in your mind the things you've learnt). If you're preparing for an exam, daily 'revision' like this is much more useful than last-minute 'cramming'.
