How to make use of your mobile phone
It doesn't matter which type of mobile phone you are using, even the cheapest phones these days come with audio recorders and since this is the only feature we are interested with, you don't need any more expenses.
If you don't have this gadget, you can use a voice recorder, a radio recorder, a computer or any other device that can capture sound
- Set aside at least one hour every two days to pursue this project
- Lock your self in a silent room, with a table, a mobile phone and notes
- Open the notes which you want to record and assess the extent to which you want to record
- While recording, make sure that your voice is clear, there should be no noise from the surrounding and that your phone battery has enough power to run you through the session, avoid echo and put your phone near your mouth
- Access sound recorder software from your phone and make it ready to start recording. Make sure your phone has enough space in the memory card (a 2 GB memory card is sufficient to store several mp3s)
- Put your notes straight ahead of you, clear your voice and switch on the sound recorder on your phone.
- Start reading with moderately smooth voice
- You can record subsets of topics or the wholesomely record the entire topic you want
- After the recording session, save the it into your memory card.
Utilize the power of repetition
- While laying on bed waiting for sleep
- Waiting for a Matatu (PSV vehicle)
- While traveling

- During extracurricular outings like sports day while watching matches, drama, music etc.
- Walking from and into the school in the morning and evening hours and so much more
Do not procrastinate what you can do now, get this process rolling, you need the 11% absorption rate to improve your grades.
