Reply To: Magic Sentences
The thing with Magic Sentences is that whether you get it right or wrong makes no difference. The skills you are using are listening, focus and memory. You should listen carefully to every single word, all of the sentences, all of the instructions between the sentences.
When you hear the 4 sentences, you need to try to memorise them word for word. After the reverse sentence has been played, you say the 4 sentences completely word for word in your mind. Then you choose which one is the magic sentence and say that in your mind.
When you say you stop paying attention, that's the complete opposite of what you're supposed to do. Don't think about the results, don't think ahead. Really really focus on the words that are currently being played. It's the trying that counts.
